I really want to pull for the Rockets in the playoffs.  They’re fast paced, exciting, and put up a TON of points.  Plus, you have arguably one of the greatest players of our generation embarrassing defenses every night in James Harden.  Dude has the greatest step back move (that some would call a travel) that […]

SAN ANTONIO – Nuggets wing Torrey Craig doesn’t remember the last time he was nervous before a game. Saturday, despite a rowdy road environment and the pressure of potentially facing a 3-1 deficit to the San Antonio Spurs, was no exception. In his first-ever playoff start, Craig made a massive difference as the Nuggets went on the road and stole homecourt advantage to send the series back to Denver tied 2-2. Craig, who started in place of Will Barton, was the chess piece Nuggets coach Michael Malone tabbed to shadow Spurs star DeMar DeRozan. That matchup allowed Gary Harris to pester Game 3 star Derrick White. “Our two best perimeter defenders on their two best perimeter players,” Malone said. More than once Craig picked DeRozan up well beyond halfcourt, hounding and bodying him like the Spurs had done to the Nuggets in Game 3. Late in the fourth quarter, Craig had slipped past DeRozan, snatched the ball and forced a foul directly in front of the Nuggets’ bench. On San Antonio’s next possession, DeRozan bolted down the lane and into the body of Harris, who drew an offensive foul. In a fit of rage, DeRozan turned and whipped the ball toward an official and was immediately ejected. RELATED: How Colorado’s Derrick White became 2019 NBA Playoffs’ breakout star Craig, a G League player last season, gets partial credit for the relentless harassment. “I just tried to stay disciplined, make every shot tough and make him feel me the whole night,” Craig said. “I think I did a pretty good job of that.” What Malone admittedly didn’t envision, though, was that aside from the dogged defense, Craig would be a boon on the offensive end as well. Craig scored 18 points and sunk five 3-pointers as part of Denver’s long-range assault. Two of his 3-pointers came in the decisive third quarter. Another one squashed a Spurs mini-run. “I’d be lying if I said I knew Torrey Craig was going to go out and get 18 and hit five threes,” Malone said. “But his defense, his rebounding, his shot making and Malik (Beasley) was still fantastic off the bench.” Malone’s tinkering worked. Craig was invaluable, Beasley was effective off the bench, and Barton drained three 3-pointers in a reserve role. [related_articles location=”right” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”] When the Nuggets were in Miami earlier this season, Craig made a similarly huge impact with his effort and energy on the offensive glass. His 11-point, 16-rebound game had local scribes scrambling to figure out who exactly was the undrafted forward from the University of South Carolina Upstate. “For me, I never look at when you were drafted, what round, what school,” Malone said. “I don’t care. If you can play, I’m going to play you.” Malone recalled a conversation he had with Craig last season where he told him to consider Bruce Bowen, the former Spurs wing who carved out a career as a three-and-D guy. He gave Craig a template, and the humble kid rewarded him. “I always dreamed of it happening, and I always wished for it to happen, but to be here now is indescribable,” Craig said. “I really can’t explain it.”
