Nuggets Win Again
If you’re looking for a team in the NBA to root for. To get on the Band Wagon with. It’s the Denver Nuggets. Tonight the Nuggets beat what I think is the second best team in the the NBA….in the Oklahoma City Thunder…..114-104.
According to Randy Renner at NBA.Com…..
THE FACTS: The Denver Nuggets used an offensive explosion in the second quarter and a lockdown defensive effort in the third and then held off a Thunder rally in the fourth for a 114-104 win. The victory is the team’s 13th straight and sets a Nuggets record for their NBA history but the franchise won 15 games in the 1969-70 season while the team played in the old ABA.
The Nuggets had six players in double figures led by point guard Ty Lawson who finished with 25 points, his backup Andre Miller had 20 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. Kenneth Faried had a monster night with 13 points, 15 rebounds and three blocked shots.
Kevin Durant led all scorers with 34 points but the Thunder only had two other players in double figures. Russell Westbrook added 25 points and six assists and Kevin Martin showed signs of snapping out of a shooting slump with 14 points on 4-for-7 shooting.
The Nuggets dominated down low, scoring a whopping 72 points in the paint. The Thunder dominated on the fast break scoring 26 points on 11 shots while Denver managed 15 points on 12 shots.
The Nuggets win the season series from Oklahoma City 3-1 and took the last three games in a row.
