JR Smith returns tonight
 
and the Nuggs are going to need him big time. They really need to get a couple more wins before Melo gets back in two weeks. Hopefully JR can stretch the D and unclog the lane a bit.

Wrong Forum!

;)

But yeah, this is huge. As long as the Nuggets can stay .500 or better and/or hold a playoff spot until Carmelo gets back, they can make a run. Right now they sit at 8th in the West I believe, and if they can hold that or grab 7, that would be great.

Hopefully JR knocks the rust off tonight, I'm going to the Rockets game on Friday.

More JR = less Earl. Nice.

JR & Iverson are going make life easier for each other. The Nuggets have been facing almost strictly zone defenses that have been cutting off Iverson's ability to get to the basket. JR's shooting will loosen that up. If they loosen up the zone, there will be lanes for Iverson to drive through. Tough draw getting the Spurs in his first game back, though.

Just need to keep their heads above water until a week from Monday when Carmelo comes back.

In the 2nd half of this game, Marcus Camby played about the laziest half of basketball I've ever seen out of him in all of his years as a Nugget.

I actually had a club level seat for this game (won it through work). First of all, Allen Iverson is just incredible to watch. I spent most of the game just watching him. The man is a freak of nature. Second of all, I never want to sit in the club seats again as all of the douchebags around me were a pain in the ass. We had the idiot frat guys with their trophy bimbos who were there with daddy's tickets and ended up getting bombed, almost falling over, and dropping the f-bomb about every 30 seconds. Then of course we have the people that could care less about the game and gave me weird looks for cheering.

But the food is a lot better on the club level.

That and having a waiter are the only positives about club level.

Problem was that the waiter had to spend half of the night dealing with the idiot frat boys, so he stood next to me most of the night blocking my view. Unless they're free again, I'll never go club seats.

I can't wait to see AI play in person. I've seen him once when the 6ers visited the Nuggs, but I want to really watch him with our boys. And I really hope JR has knocked the rust off. I want to see a win, damnit.

I'm going to the game on Friday, I'm sitting Row 2, section 126. Scored killer seats on eBay, which came with passes to the elite lounge, which apparently means we get fed before the game. Anyways, hopefully the food is good and we have a good crowd in that part of the stands. It's always hard to gauge what sections will be good and which ones will be people just there to sit down.

Sorry to hear you had a not-so-good experience in the club level. Those tickets always seem so cool.

I sat at club level for an Avs game a few years ago. A UPS rep gave me the tickets, right at center ice. Best seats I've ever had for a hockey game and the Avs rewarded me by getting hammered 7-1 by Calgary.

Damn you club level.

Just think that somebody else had a similar experience tonight ;)

I hope the chicken wings were just as tasty for them as they were for me. :)
