The Nuggets keep winning with a cakewalk victory over the hapless Milwaukee Bucks to move to 7-4 and 5-1 AC (After Chauncey.) The past two games have been a perfect contrast in how to win games that the best teams are supposed to get.
A.) Sunday night against Minnesota, the Nuggets were really bad and rode one hot shooter (Chauncey) to a sloppy and gutsy win against a bad team.
B.) Last night, against a similarly inferior squad, the Nuggets played well, built a big lead and cruised.
It does, however, raise the concern about how they will fare against the stronger sides. Maybe last weekend's Cleveland/Boston back-to-back was a snap snot. But, if they can split with the league's elite and keep down the bottom dwellers, the Nuggets should be able to get close to 50 wins again this year.
Now the most imperitive question becomes, when does Cheikh Samb start getting major minutes?
