Nuggets vs. Spurs preview: Faried, Denver begin road swing in San Antonio

Chris Humphreys-US PRESSWIRE

Kenneth Faried and the Nuggets could be catching the Spurs, who lost at home to the New York Knicks in vomit-inducing fashion on Thursday, at the right time.

The Denver Nuggets kick off a three-game road trip on Saturday night against the San Antonio Spurs at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas.

The Nuggets have lost two straight games, most recently a 98-93 home defeat at the hands of the Miami Heat on Thursday. Perhaps overshadowed by the result of the game was Kenneth Faried's 16-point, 20-rebound effort. Faried has six double-doubles in nine games this season for the Nuggets, who need a win in San Antonio to get back to .500.

The Spurs also lost on Thursday night, falling to the undefeated New York Knicks, 104-100. San Antonio held a 12-point lead with a little more than seven minutes remaining when New York went on a 20-6 run to claim the lead with less than two minutes left. Tony Parker scored 19 points and dished out 12 assists in the loss.

The Nuggets and Spurs are set to tip-off at 6:30 p.m. MT.
