The game is HUGE....

The Western Conference playoffs have pretty much begun. Golden State/Denver exact same record, tied for the 8th spot....
You look at the remaining 3 games for both teams after tonight's tilt, and this could be a rather decisive game. Each appear to have a couple "easier" games and one that doesn't shape up in their favor. Then again, whoever wins tonight might just take the momentum with them and finish the season off with a bonafide winning streak heading into the playoffs.
I'll be making a rare (non-Avs) Pepsi Center appearance for Sunday's Rockets game...glad that for the Nugs, there remains something to play for.

Creeping back into this sucker...

Up ten with 10 left! Great play by the star players. This game is worth two games, as the tiebreaker is also determined tonight.

I must say the Nugs made me mighty proud tonight. A fun game to watch and a HUGE win in a tough building. I've become a KMart fan this season. If this team played ANY defense, they'd be awesome.

Who is going Sunday?

Sonic Tooth said...

...bench points were the difference tonight. Dwarfed the City in that department.

TD, you wanna go Sunday night? I don't think the missus is too interested.

TroutDog said...

I'll have to check with my missus, but something tells me I'll be able to secure a seat for Sat...

The Nuggets should exclusively play zone-defense.
I have never seen them play with such intensity and so together on that end of the court.
War one game being worth two games.
Where is our Bay Area commenter?

Indeed the bench was huge; J.R. was kind of dishin'em. And I agree, Kenyon has turned into a somewhat likeable player this year... know what I'm saying?

TroutDog said...

Of course I meant Sunday....I don't like back-to-back Can appearances.

Young Bear said...

At least you know that Kenyon will play hard on both ends and grab a board or two.

Sunday Nugget tickie ain't in the bag yet TD...there was a spark of interest when I brought it back up this morning. We'll see what a day of ruminating brings...

No problem - either way is cool.
