I missed the game because of work, but from the sound of things, the Nuggets as a group starting reading their own press clippings. They'd won 8 of 9 and were cruising along with a beat up, last place team coming to town. They got a bit too full of themselves and got beat. Welcome back to reality, gentlemen. You don't show up to play, as Ivan Drago would say, "You vill lose."
The only real positive was that Carmelo continued his breakout season. 37 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists and a team around him that decided to mail it in. The result, a nice stat line that's basically meaningless because it occured in a loss.
