The Spurs play in Atlanta on Martin Luther King Day, and coach Gregg Popovich was asked about the significance of the day after the team's win Saturday over the Denver Nuggets: "It makes you wonder what he would say if he was here. I think if he was here, he'd have probably figured out a way to gather some people together, and make a stand so this doesn't keep happening. But at this point, it's all about leadership and trying to bring people together. And we just don't have a lot of that right now. Nobody was better at that than he was. He knew how to protest peacefully, but he also knew how to bring people together and get things done. We don't seem to have that right now. So we've just gotta keep dealing."

The Denver Nuggets are on schedule alert tonight in San Antonio. For the Nuggets, it will mark their fifth game in eight days, their third game in four days and the second of a back-to-back set. Denver hosted the Grizzlies on Friday, then flew out immediately after for San Antonio -- losing an hour in the process -- to face a Spurs team that will enter this game with a one-day rest advantage.
