The Spurs Are Growing While The Rest Of The NBA Shrinks.

In their first 11 games after pulling off one of the most celebrated offseasons in recent NBA history, the San Antonio Spurs’ starting lineup looks like a gooey work in progress. In many ways, Tony Parker, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Tim Duncan are a microcosm for the entire team: slow, antiquated, annoyingly patient and undeserving of a pinch …

Spurs two point guards too much for Nuggets.
