A solid win tonight for the Nug-Pups. Nah, a more than solid win for the Nug-pups as they knock off one of the, if not thee, best team in the NBA. Pretty impressive considering it was on the road (first home loss for the Celtics), and it was a back-to-back night game for the Nugs, blowing one down the stretch to the Cavs last night.
I must admit I didn't watch much of last night's game, due to a combination of the Das Banquet and watching my Jets (wha?) get a nice little overtime W over Boston's beloved Pats. [Hence the title of the post... face boston! and face hoody! (OK maybe I'm still a little bitter about the world series and maybe the Broncos loss)]. But anyways, it's nice to see the N-Pups bounce back after a loss to a team that we normally kind of own.
After watching/ listening to most of tonight's game on FSN, I kind of put 2 and 2 together with the timing of this East Coast Friday night game and figured it was likely on ESPN, and switched over (I like biased announcers, but Barlowe...). Even the ESPN guys were given props to the Nuggets D; kind of weird. I must agree though, the D looked good tonight; I have no problem with Nene getting 5 steals during the course of a game. YB proves to be correct in his 09 Nene assessment (just as long as he stays healthy and out of foul trouble in my opinion).
Good W. Post-Billups trade Nug Pups are looking mighty nice thus far.
On a slight side note, the Taco Bell feed your Nugget fever deal sucks. A) with this more defensive oriented team, I don't see the Nuggets scoring over 120 points a whole lot this season, and B) paying over 2 bucks for 3 tacos and a drink ain't anything to write home about. (4 tacos for a dollar on the on the other hand, now that's a steal)
