Spurs, Nuggets seek more after opening season with wins

Gregg Popovich and Michael Malone have a healthy respect for one another, but it's unlikely the two NBA coaches will be worried about that Friday night.

Popovich, who began his 26th season as coach of San Antonio, leads his Spurs into Denver against Malone's Nuggets in their home opener. Both teams are coming off impressive wins Wednesday night and look to build on that momentum.

San Antonio thumped Orlando, 123-97, with an ensemble performance while Denver got a measure of revenge against Phoenix, beating the Suns, 110-98. Phoenix swept the injury-depleted Nuggets in the second round of the playoffs last June.
