2008-09 Game 34: Denver Nuggets at Oklahoma City Thunder Game Thread

Yes, we will continue to have game threads here at RMC.  The only problem is new comments will not automatically appear as they did at our previous location so hit the refresh button early and often. 

The Nuggets have a very winnable game that would cap a successful 3-1 road trip as they face the 4-29 Oklahoma City Thunder.  The Thunder may have the worst record in the NBA, but they are not a decent home team.  They may find a way to lose almost every game, but over their previous nine home games they have an average scoring margin of only -3.7.  They play hard and keep games close and they have won two of their past four home games.

Kevin Durant started off slowly, but has regained the edge he seemed to find towards the end of last season When he pummeled the Nuggets for 37 points including some insanely clutch long bombs on the way to a memorable 151-147 overtime victory for the then Sonics.

This is a game where the Nuggets have a shot at ending their slide down the defensive efficiency ranks as the Thunder are last in the league in offensive efficiency at only 97.6. 

The Nuggets are yet to falter against a non playoff caliber team this season so there is no reason to expect anything less than a victory.  However, this is hungry team who will fight and claw all night long and if the Nuggets get off to another slow start look for a tight down to the wire game.

    Nice new blog! I am excited to see what you will do here. Anyway, this should definitely be a win but I hate playing in these lose-lose situations. If we win, well, we were supposed to. If we falter, we just lost to a 4 win team and are laughing stocks for an evening. I don’t see any problem here though. Nuggets win it 117-102

    This is so typical. Nugs play down to the Competition by the 2nd period. Where is the CB passion so infused every game ’till just recently. And Chris Marlowe on Altitude 2 is especially annoying tonight. I should have gone to the DU game tonight. May I be the first to curse here.
