The San Antonio Spurs could not withstand a Nuggets' fourth quarter-surge, losing 117-109 in Denver.

The Spurs held a 10-point lead in the second-half, only to falter in the final period, scoring 19 points while the Nuggets took control of the game with 30 points to seal a win.

With the team depleted heading into the game, already out LaMarcus Aldridge, Rudy Gay and Kawhi Leonard, the Spurs saw Manu Ginobili leave the game in the second-half to right foot soreness.

Denver out-scored the Spurs in the paint 64-46, and scored 20 points off 19 Spurs turnovers.

San Antonio now drops to 35-24 on the season and 1-3 on their Rodeo Road Trip.

Let's see who shined and who didn't.

Joffrey Lauvergne:

Lauvergne had a career-game in scoring with 26 points and grabbing 11 rebounds to pace the Spurs.

Kyle Anderson:

Anderson couldn't get things going versus Denver, scoring just 2 points (1-3 shooting) in 21 minutes.

Next: At Denver on Feb. 23.
