• Henry Ellenson - F - Detroit Pistons

    Henry Ellenson struggled big time in Wednesday's win over the Wolves, finishing with seven points, seven rebounds, one assist and one steal on 3-of-17 shooting and 1-of-7 from three.

    Ellenson has the potential to land a rotation spot next season but he has to be better than this. As of now, he's got no fantasy value at all, however, some consistent playing time and coherent play could make him considerable in deeper formats down the road.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge - F - San Antonio Spurs

    LaMarcus Aldridge contributed 24 points on 10-of-18 shooting, and added nine rebounds, one assist, two steals and a block on Saturday night against the Nuggets.

    Aldridge did everything he could tonight by putting up all-around contributions across the board but it wasn't enough to stop the romp of the Nuggets who were just clicking the whole night. LMA was up to his usual crafty moves but his teammates weren't able to pick up the slack when he needed them the most. Derrick White was mediocre tonight while DeRozan didn't simply take enough shots in order to keep up with the barrage that Denver was throwing at them. Expect Aldridge to be more aggressive if they want to steal another one at the Pepsi Center before heading back to AT&T Center.

  • DeMar DeRozan - G - San Antonio Spurs

    Prior to getting ejected, DeMar DeRozan scored 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting while adding five rebounds and five assists in Game 4 on Saturday.

    The Spurs' need every bit of their stars to show up so once DeRozan got ejected, it's all downhill for the Spurs' who lost control after their dominant first quarter against the Nuggets. He was efficient in tonight's matchup but 13 shots aren't enough to make an impact against the Nuggets who were desperate to steal a game in the Spurs' home floor after they did the same back in Game 1.

  • Bryn Forbes - G - San Antonio Spurs

    Bryn Forbes finished tonight's game with 10 points, four rebounds, one assist, one block and two triples on 3-of-6 shooting in 28 minutes in Saturday night's loss to the Nuggets.

    Despite the efficient night, Forbes wasn't able to affect the game as much as he wanted to as the Nuggets steal one in the Spurs' home court. The Spurs' need his consistent shooting from three if they are looking to upset Denver in their first-round matchup.

  • Derrick White - G - San Antonio Spurs

    Derrick White finished with eight points, four rebounds, five assists and one block on 3-of-8 shooting in 28 minutes vs. the Nuggets on Saturday.

    White fell back to earth after coming off the best game of his career in Game 3. His defense wasn't as effective tonight as Jamal Murray was able to get to any spot he wanted and was a key contributor in helping Nikola Jokic steal one in the Spurs' homecourt tonight. The coaching staff needs the pesky defense of White to show up again heading into Game 5 if they want to close out this series on their stadium.

  • Jakob Poeltl - C - San Antonio Spurs

    Jakob Poeltl finished with eight points, nine rebounds, two assists and one block on 3-of-5 shooting in Saturday's loss against the Nuggets.

    Poeltl logged 30 minutes tonight but wasn't able to slow down Nikola Jokic, who was on a mission to tie the series and not let his team be down 3-1 before heading back to their home court. Coach Gregg Popovich knows that there's only so much that Poeltl can do so he'll be expecting him to at least make Jokic force some shots in their next game.

  • Will Barton - G - Denver Nuggets

    Will Barton wasn't able to do much in Game 4 on Saturday with 12 points on 3-of-10 shooting to go with four rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 15 minutes off the bench.

    He has been horrendous the entire series so it's not surprising to see that Coach Mike Malone decided to shake the starting lineup in order to garner a different result before heading back to Denver. Luckily for them, putting Torrey Craig in the starting lineup proved to be the answer they needed in tieing this series up. Barton made the most out of his 15 minutes by firing 10 shots and making all three of his 3-pointers. This might be his role moving forward as long as Craig is making positive impact on the floor.

  • Nikola Jokic - C - Denver Nuggets

    Nikola Jokic double-doubled in Saturday's Game 4 win with 29 points, 12 rebounds, eight assists and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

    Jokic was looking for his shot the whole night and led the charge for the Nuggets as they steal one in San Antonio before heading back to the Mile High City. His aggressiveness tonight opened up the floor for both Jamal Murray and Torrey Craig who took advantage of the open looks they received in tonight's matchup. A locked-on Jokic is just what Denver needs if they're going to close out the Spurs in their first-round matchup.

  • Gary Harris - G - Denver Nuggets

    Gary Harris only scored eight points on 2-of-9 shooting with six boards, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in Saturday's win over the Spurs.

    The inefficient night can be forgiven in tonight's matchup but the Nuggets need Harris to show up whenever Jamal Murray is struggling to find his groove. It's been hard for him to find consistency in his game this year because of the myriad of injuries that he succumbed to this whole season.

  • Jamal Murray - G - Denver Nuggets

    Jamal Murray played 31 minutes in Saturday's Game 4 win, scoring 24 points with two rebounds and three 3-pointers.

    Murray decided to show up in Game 4 to help the Nuggets tie the series at 2-2 before heading back to Denver. The inconsistency is to be expected since he's still young but tonight, he was able to find his shot over Derrick White, who has been playing out of his mind in this series as well. The Blue Arrow needs to show up every night in order for the Nuggets to knock off the Spurs in their first round matchup.

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig started in Saturday's win over the Spurs and tallied 18 points with eight rebounds, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers.

    Craig made sure that Coach Mike Malone didn't make a mistake in putting him in the starting lineup by rewarding him with an efficient and all-around stat line in tonight's game. He was also 6-of-9 in the 37 minutes that he played in and was a key contributor in tonight's win over the Spurs.
