Game 1

- from the official site of the Denver Nuggets

Denver relied on tough defense, timely rebounding and clutch shooting to pull away from San Antonio in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 93-87 Game 1 win. The visiting Nuggets, who got 31 points from Andre Miller, allowed only one field goal in the game's final 10 minutes and forced San Antonio to miss 17 straight shots. The loss is just the Spurs' fourth at home this season. Game 2 will be in San Antonio on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET, TNT).

Suns Smokin’

The Phoenix Suns have been starting a streak. Taking the fifth victory for the streak over the Nuggets, the Suns have officially tied up a record that they have not hit since the 1992-93 season (62-20). The Suns have clinched their record as the top for the Western Conference.

The Nuggets are seated in the seventh seed. This puts them as competitors to San Antonio in the first round. The Spurs are a very well-rounded team and will most likely eliminate the Nuggets during this round.

The 6th Seed

- from FOXSports.com

No race may be more important than the race for sixth in the West between the Nuggets and Rockets. The sixth seed gets the Sonics in the first round, the seventh is likely to get the Spurs. The way the Sonics are limping to the finish line, facing them in the first round would be far less of a challenge than dealing with the Spurs. The matter could be settled on the court because the Rockets play host to the Nuggets on Saturday night. With the season series tied 1-1, the game essentially is worth two games in the standings. If the teams end up with the same record at the end of the season, the winner of Saturday's game will be the higher seed.
