That Nuggets game last night was the type of game they would have dropped earlier in the season. They still suck at free throw shooting, but they are finding ways to pull away when they should and take care of business.

Which is just one of the reasons none of us should expect much during the playoffs. The Nuggets are fun to watch right now but they look like the exact opposite of a good playoff team.

There is no reason why Lawson should shoot 50% or Iggy 25% from the FT line.

No. Morehead State University is in Kentucky. The Minnestoa State University (Moorhead) is near Fargo. He did not play for the Dragons.

If the Nuggets finish off the best team from la, they'll only be 2.5 games out of the 3rd seed.

This game was crazy. Tied at the half and looking like a good game and the Nugs decided to start hitting all those three point shots and it was over.

Like most Nuggets fans, I've had a tempered enthusiasm with this team. A healthy skepticism. I think they're above-average, I think they can get out of the first round of the playoffs. But that's probably about it.

Does tonight change that? No. I still think they get out of the first round but that's it. But, I will say, they are not to be ****ed with at home, and they'll give anybody fits. I've got tickets to the Knicks game on Wednesday, that should be ridiculous. I'm borderline upset I can't go to the Memphis game on Friday but I'll be in Vegas.

I know their road play leaves much to be desired, but this team can be great at home, and I think the playoffs are going to be a lot of fun this year.

Rose cleared to play:

Scared of the Heat train running over his ass?

I will say I don't blame him if he doesn't come back this year. ACL in basketball is serious business.

I tend to agree with the earlier comment that they aren't built for the regular season. They miss free thorws, they aren't one of those boring, tough defensive teams that can grind it out and wear a team down over a seven game series. They are missing THE guy. They play fast and that doesn't usually hold up over a seven game series. They sometimes make stupid turnovers and still can't make their free throws.

I don't know about their post season chances, so I'm just going to enjoy them right now. When the refs are sending the stars to the FFL a bunch like they do in the playoffs, then our team, without a star player to draw fouls just for breathing, will get out-scored.

I'll be at the Memphis game. Had that one circled for about 2 months now. Wish I could go to the Knicks game as well!

Great game last night though. Nuggets were hitting on all cylinders in the 2nd half.

I am about over Andre Miller's turnovers though.

Haven't seen George that pissed in a long time after that garbage call against Lawson...then the Nuggs answer George's T with a flurry of dunks and a big run!! Love watching this team...need to close out the wolves in the fourth now.

Nuggets are within two games of the clippers, one point five behind memphis. Memphis currently holds the three seed, though, because their winning percentage is .01 better than the clips.

Nuggies have an interesting week ahead of them. Tomorrow should be (has to be, really) an easy win against the Suns. Then they have NYK and all the hoopla that's going to bring. Carmelo should be playing but as far as I've heard no guarantee. Then that Memphis showdown.

I feel bad for poor Wilson Chandler. Railroaded by his own coach out of nowhere.

Looks like Phoenix really doesn't care much. Nuggets can't lose this one.

Sean Elliot was giving the nugs props tonight.

Meanwhile the spurs take care of the thunder without Parker.

Nuggets win their 9th consecutive game, including 4 road games.
