Nuggets 115, Spurs 109: What they said after the game

The Spurs are 5-6 on the season and will next face the Grizzlies at home Wednesday night.

SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio Spurs are on a four-game losing streak after losing to the Denver Nuggets, 115-109, at home.

The Spurs are 5-6 on the season and will next face the Grizzlies at home Wednesday night.

Here's a sample of what the teams said after the game courtesy of the Spurs.


Gregg Popovich

"24 turnovers for 34 [Denver] points is really going to make it difficult to win a game. That's how we lost it," Popovich said. "But I couldn't be prouder. Their execution, their competitiveness, that's who they have to be night after night. They did a great job. Really good team play."


"Nuggets did a good job just getting into passing lanes," Richardson said. "But turnovers, when you give up 35 points off of turnovers it's hard to win. We still played them within four or five points. I think that says a lot about the rest of the game."


"I feel like everybody was just trying to make plays down the stretch," Jones said. "We were doing everything we could to give ourselves a chance to win. We turned it over a lot in the third quarter. It gave them [Denver] that run. They capitalized off it but down the stretch, turnovers as well."


Mike Malone

“We had 33 assists, which is a great number. We just talked about the turnovers. You make it hard for yourself to win on the road when you do that. It's really hard to beat yourself and your opponent in the same night, and we got away with it tonight," Jones said. "I felt the key stretch to the game was I called a timeout early in that third, came out very very lackluster, lack of focus, lack of purpose, and I felt their response out of that timeout was tremendous."
