Game 5 is Tuesday night in Denver.

The Nuggets were more aggressive and physical after a deflating Game 3 loss, just as Denver coach Michael Malone had hoped.

"I want to see some emotion. I want to see some fire. I want to see some passion," Malone said prior to the game.

Malone was able to stir that fire with a couple of changes after Derrick White's 36-point outing in San Antonio's Game 3 victory.

Torrey Craig started over a struggling Will Barton and was charged with defending White to open the game, with Murray switching to Forbes. The moves proved beneficial, if not at first.
