NBA scores: Nuggets fall into last place in Northwest with San Antonio loss

Chris Humphreys-US PRESSWIRE

A 26-point loss to the San Antonio Spurs over the weekend effectively dropped the Nuggets into last place in the Northwest Division.

Clearly feeling the effects of their brutal road slate to open up the year, the Denver Nuggets dropped their third consecutive game over the weekend to fall to 4-6 on the young season.

The Nuggets came up well short against a veteran San Antonio team on Saturday evening at the AT&T Center, falling into an immediate 33-15 hole after just one quarter of play. While as many as six Denver scorers would end the night in double figures, the Nuggets still were never able to bounce back from their extremely poor start to the game and left the building with a disastrous 126-100 defeat.

With his team now on a three-game slide, head coach George Karl will need to find a way to get his players going before their upcoming stretch of five road dates over a seven-game span. One of the culprits for the early season struggles may be none other than forward Andre Iguodala, who is shooting just 43.7% and has committed nearly as many turnovers as assists this season. Iguodala is also averaging a meager 12.0 points per game over his team's current losing streak, and will need to be much more of a factor on Monday night when the Nuggets take on a one-loss Memphis squad.
