Re: Brian Shaw discusses the Nuggets start
The San Antonio Spurs overcame a 13-point deficit, ran the Nuggets down and sprinted away from them in the fourth quarter to grab a 102-94 win at the Pepsi Center. It denied Shaw his first win as head coach and dropped the Nuggets to 0-3 for the second consecutive year. But speaking of the process, it looked much more on track, though the team wasn't able to make the necessary plays to pull it out.
"We played basically about 36 minutes of good basketball," Shaw said. "Once again, we couldn't sustain the effort through the whole 48 minutes. We talked about playing a team of the Spurs caliber that they punish you and make you pay for the mistakes you make."
