Guard play likely to decide Game 4 between Spurs, Nuggets

The first three games of the Western Conference first-round playoff series between second-seeded Denver and seventh-seeded San Antonio have boiled down to which team received better play from its backcourt.

And with today's NBA being guard-oriented, expect that trend to continue when the Spurs host the Nuggets in Game 4 of the series on Saturday afternoon at the AT&T Center in San Antonio.

The Spurs grabbed a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series with a 118-108 home win on Thursday as two pieces of its three-guard attack -- second-year pro Derrick White and veteran DeMar DeRozan -- combined for 61 points.
