Jamal Murray Scores Inefficient 16 Points In Game 6 Loss

Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray managed to convert just 7-for-19 of his shots from the floor en route to 16 points in the 17-point Game 6 loss to the Spurs on Thursday. Murray filled out his line with six assists, three rebounds and a make from three while adding three turnovers in 35 minutes of action. He hurt his left thigh, but played through the pain and was in obvious pain at times. Murray will get just Friday off to get some therapy and definitely will play through the pain on Saturday when the series shifts back to Denver for Game 7.

LaMarcus Aldridge Puts Up 26 points In Game 6

San Antonio Spurs power forward/center LaMarcus Aldridge posted an excellent line on Thursday in Game 6 in the 120-103 win over the Nuggets. Aldridge poured in 26 points with 10 rebounds for his third double-double of the series and he chipped in five assists with a block without a single turnover. The Spurs were efficient as a team in this one as they shot 57.1% from the floor overall and had just seven total turnovers as a team. The Spurs will need another big game from their veteran big man in Game 7 if they hope to move onto the second round in the Western Conference.

DeMar DeRozan Scores Efficient 25 Points In Game 6

San Antonio Spurs shooting guard/small forward DeMar DeRozan poured in 25 points on 12-for-16 with the series on the line to help push the series to a Game 7. DeRozan did a bit of everything as he dished out seven assists with seven rebounds and only had one turnover over his 36 minutes. DeRozan was very efficient as he shot 75.0% from the floor but only got to the line on two occasions which was a series low. We can expect an aggressive DeRozan in Game 7 and expect a big line from the veteran wing player with the series on the line.
