NBA Game Rankings: 12/17/10

If you stayed up late last night, there was a great game in Denver between the Spurs and Nuggets, which saw Manu Ginobili once again make a big shot to fuel his team to victory. There’s a reason why the Spurs have the best record in the NBA, and that’s because they have veteran players who can step up in the clutch when they need them to. Even if it’s not Ginobili, it’s Tony Parker or Tim Duncan. We might have underestimated the Spurs to this point, but it’s time to realize that this is the best team in the NBA.

Here’s a look at tonight’s schedule:
