When analyzing how or even when the San Antonio Spurs could snap their 11-game losing streak, Sunday’s game against the defending NBA Champion Denver Nuggets wasn’t the game that was circled as a possible win.

That was until the injury report came out listing two Nuggets starters, point guard Jamal Murray and power forward Aaron Gordon, who are out for tonight’s game against the Spurs due to injuries.

Murray is out with a hamstring injury and Gordon has a heel that’s been bothering him.

The Spurs now have the opportunity to face a weakened Nuggets roster, which could lead to a much-needed win after suffering losses in the last 11 outings.
