Wow, that was some game tonight. Melo with 31 sat 1/2 the 4th quarter and Klieza scored 10 points and added 9 rebounds. I take all back I've said about Kenyon a few weeks ago, if he can stay healthy and Marcus comes back 100% that division is ours for the taking.

Kenyon is getting healthy and getting confident. He's been playing well recently.
Tonight was just one long Nugget highlight reel, dunk after dunk. Good to blow out a team. Big test on Sunday with the Spurs, who will be without Manu Ginobli. He got carried off the court tonight in their game @ Miami, and his ankle looks to be severely sprained.
Too bad I'll probably be leaving my house around 11 for the Bronco game, so I'll probably miss all of the Spurs/Nugs game... Damn early sunday games.
But 3 games over .500 and getting better each game. Big division win tonight.

It was fun watching Drago get abused on both ends of the floor by Carmelo. For all the hype about what a great defender he is, he sure didn't show it last night. Carmelo had 23 in the first half and cruised to 31 and an easy win for the Nuggets.
Kenyon is getting better. I don't know if it's a confidence issue or if he's finally getting healthy, but his defense, hustle and effort have improved 10 fold over the last few games. Keep it up.
It's hard to believe that there was a time this season that Earl Watson was getting DNP's. The guy just goes out there and contributes on both ends of the floor every time he's out there. The Nuggets haven't lost since he was inserted into the starting lineup.
So long as they can keep their heads above water for another week or so until Camby gets back in the lineup, this team should be well set up for a 2nd half run.
