Overall
I had San Antonio Spurs win this series because of the experience edge and they are a team that would push a sweep if it wasn't for Jamal Murray's fire in the fourth quarter of match two. Spurs have been in control for almost 11 out of 12 quarters in this series and have been one of the more credible teams at home all season long, including victories in 15 of their last 17 attempts. The Denver Nuggets play as the young team they are and currently seem too big for them. I will put the fair chalk with Spurs as they put a wrath on this series heading back to Denver for battle five.
