The San Antonio Spurs are preparing to square off against the Denver Nuggets in the first round of the NBA Playoffs on Saturday, and they’ll need all the help they can get against the team that, for awhile, was the No. 1 team in the Western Conference.
San Antonio will need strong backcourt play to match the likes of Jamal Murray, Garry Harris Jr. and others, which will force its young guards to step up. This will be the first time in over a decade that Tony Parker won’t be holding it down in the backcourt, which puts a ton of pressure on Derrick White, DeMar DeRozan and Patty Mills.
Dejounte Murray showed a lot of promise in his sophomore season, as he began to really develop, but he suffered a torn ACL back in October, so he’ll miss the playoffs. That’s unfortunate, as Spurs fans have really wanted to see him on the court, and his smokeshow girlfriend, Jilly Anais, She’s an Instagram model, and you’ll see why in these photos of her and the Spurs guard bellow, as she really steals the show in all of them.
