2008-09 Game 40: Denver Nuggets vs Phoenix Suns Game Thread

Tonight the Nuggets continue their seven game homestand against the Phoenix Suns.  To preview the game Phoenix Stan over at Bright Side of the Sun invited me to do a little podcast.  (By the way, it was recorded on Tuesday afternoon before the Mavs game so that is why there is no mention of that collapse.)

Update:  George Karl has been informed by the Nuggets front office that J.R. Smith has not been suspended for his elbow jab at Antoine Wright and he will be in the starting lineup tonight.  Also, the same article says Chauncey went home sick from shoot around, but is expected to play tonight.

Denver Nuggets Game Notes

    Who was cuban yelling at after the game if it wasn’t the refs? On 104.3 the FAN they were talking about it but never referenced the players name. Cuban stated in an email with the Rocky Mountain News “I was talking to someone else (with the Nuggets) who was quite clear in their pleasure of their team winning the game and mocking the fact they got away with the calls.”

    So who was it????

  • CCH

    Ill be at the game. Go nuggets!

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Ugh, still waiting on the Suns/Cavs game to be over so TNT can show our boys.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Listening on the radio…sounds like the Nuggets are playing a very perimeter oriented game.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Shaq is not playing and Robin Lopez has two early fouls. Louis Amundson is playing alongside Amare.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Go Birdman!

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Chauncey Chauncey with the bucket and to shoot two I believe.

  • BeefySwats

    Chauncey just did another leg kick on Robin Lopez and got the foul and one, lol.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    lol. At least the game is on and the Nuggets are in it. Unlike that horrible Avs game I just watched.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    AC nice!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Looks like we will not have to worry about the Nuggets having a double digit halftime lead to throw away.

  • UnarmingMermaid

    Just turned on the game…is Chauncey sick?

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    3 more quarters…I believe the nuggets will do better, they just have to.

  • UnarmingMermaid

    Where is Shaqovich?

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Chauncey left the shoot around this morning because he was sick. He seems to be OK though…for now.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    TNT we get that you love the Suns and we didn’t score a lot in the first quarter…the game is not over.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Now they are saying Shaq has a routine night off.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Shaq is sitting out to play tomorrow night. He only plays in one game when they have back to backs.

  • BeefySwats

    Ugh, horrible first quarter for Denver.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    I think Billups leads the league in made shots with a toe on the three point line.

  • BeefySwats

    Chauncey’s decisionmaking is once again bad in the first quarter.

  • Josh Hopp

    Just got in, ugly looking scoreline. Glad to hear shaq isn’t active, he has been tearing it up lately

  • Josh Hopp

    Amare is too good to be rejected by Bird

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Kleiza!

  • BeefySwats

    hey, anyone remember that Balkman guy we traded for?

    yeah, I don’t either.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Horrible entry pass by LK, Throw it to the side the defender isn’t on.

  • Josh Hopp

    Man we are getting torn up. Suns are classy

  • UnarmingMermaid

    Off topic: Karl has taken alot of criticism for how he interacts with his players and particularly JR Smith; however, you have to like how Karl stood up for Smith against Mark Cuban Tuesday night. Smith had to like that too.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    I too, miss the mythical creature..what does it take for him to get minutes? Every single player in the team to be out?

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    At least LK is smart enough to take it to the hole!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Yesterday on the 1510 AM J.R. Smith said he believes he has a very good relationship with Karl. It is important to note that was after Karl stood up for him as Mermaid pointed out.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Mermaid, I did like that he stood up for J.R. that way, especially given the prior relationship between those two.

  • UnarmingMermaid

    That’s good to hear. I’m always worried that Smith and Karl’s suppossedly poor relationship was eventually going to push Smith out of town. Maybe I can stop worrying.

  • Josh Hopp

    Did anyone watch the Spurs Lakers game? The Spurs are absolutely superb. Manu can do no wrong. We need to win games like these to ensure we don’t meet them in the 1st round.

  • Josh Hopp

    On JR and Karl – earlier this season I said I thought their relationship was improved but have recently sensed a deterioration. It’s good to hear that its reasonably stable at the moment. Now if JR could knock down some shots we would be set.

  • BeefySwats

    Argh, I would really like to see fewer carter minutes and more Balkman minutes. PLEASE KARL WHAT DOES IT TAKE

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    LK much better tonight!

  • UnarmingMermaid

    Josh,

    We’re tied with them for the 2nd seed in the conference right now. Barring a major collapse I think we’ll be okay. Plus, we usually start out the season slow and then have to rally in the middle to latter portions; however, this year we started strong and will hopefully end stronger. I’ve got my fingers crossed for the 2nd or 3rd seed.

  • Josh Hopp

    2nd or 3rd seed would be a huge ask with the return of Boozer, this new Suns squad and the heroics of Brandon Roy. With Melo back and JR and LK playing their above average, intelligent ball on offense its a realistic goal.

  • Josh Hopp

    Matt Barnes is working it down low

  • UnarmingMermaid

    If we’re going to get the 2nd or 3rd, however, we have to win games like this one.

  • UnarmingMermaid

    man…that playoff history is horrific.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Nene!

  • Josh Hopp

    It’s probably worth mentioning that before Melo was drafted we hadn’t been in the playoffs at all in however many years

  • UnarmingMermaid

    I don’t know why I didn’t go to this game…guess i forgot that it was in Denver. D’oh!

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    K-mart for 2 from Kleiza!

  • Josh Hopp

    Great little run there boys!

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    LK again!

  • UnarmingMermaid

    True…it’s definitely better to be than not to be when it comes to being in the playoffs. The novelty has worn off though and it’s time to win in the playoofs.

  • UnarmingMermaid

    lol…that didn’t make any sense.

  • Josh Hopp

    Actually there was a little debate over just that over and pickaxeandroll a few months ago; is it better to keep getting knocked out in the first round year after year or make the lottery and make changes looking for a deeper run. I definitely lean towards the former.

  • Josh Hopp

    Man! Chauncey is looking for that big 3 pointer. It costs us more than it helps us

  • UnarmingMermaid

    I think it’s best to be in the playoffs…get the experience.

  • UnarmingMermaid

    jeremy…how the heck do I change my profile picture?

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    LK Baby!

  • Josh Hopp

    Nene made NO attempt to stop Barnes there, pathetic. He shouldn’t be scoring on us in bunches

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Nice dunk K-mart! Kleiza in there again too.

  • UnarmingMermaid

    F’ing Nash…that guy drives me nuts.

  • Josh Hopp

    I can’t believe Chauncey didn’t try to answer that Nash 3 in kind

  • UnarmingMermaid

    well…based on how the first half went, we could be doing alot worse at halftime.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Still down by 6, but a better quarter.

  • BeefySwats

    I’m glad he didn’t, Chauncey’s 3 ball has been way off tonight

  • Josh Hopp

    Oh me too. I just can’t believe he wasn’t tempted.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Hey everyone, to set up an avatar go to this website. I have been meaning to put up a link for that so everyone can do it. Thanks for asking Josh Hopp.

  • BeefySwats

    Denver can still win this game down 6 if they stop committing stupid turnovers and drive the lane

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Holy cow, that spill by Delonte West was nasty.

  • Josh Hopp

    I don’t believe I asked but thanks anyway. What happened to West? Injured?

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Halftime Stats:
    Pace – 106.6
    Defensive Efficiency – 116.3 ugh
    Offensive Efficiency – 105.1 pretty good for shooting 40.9%

    Denver is getting all of their points off of second chances and fast breaks. Those are two areas Phoenix can shut down pretty easily with a little extra effort and attention.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Sorry, Josh Hopp, it was Mermaid that asked. Sorry Mermaid. You deserve a tip of the cap for bringing it up.

  • Josh Hopp

    Hey. Denver Nuggets. Let’s win this. It’ll be sweet to win this so let’s just do it. No stupid shots and defensive intensity. Defend our home court. Go the Nuggets.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Great start with the behind the back gem from J.R.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Nice Dunk to start the half by KMart!

  • Josh Hopp

    Great stuff Nene!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Great energy Denver. Keep it up!

  • Josh Hopp

    Oh, yeah! That’s my Nugs. Come on guys let’s lock down now and don’t let up!

  • BeefySwats

    Wow, great start to the half, 6-0 run. Let’s keep it up and not slump through the quarter.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    I’m liking K-Mart going where he is best..right at the rim! Go Nuggets Go Nuggets GO!

  • Kay

    That last play was nice

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    J.R. with the THREE!!!

  • Kay

    JR heating up now….

  • BeefySwats

    You know, I don’t put much water in national commentators, but they’re absolutely right. After Chauncey got that T, the game changed completely.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Huge bad three by J.R. I do not know if any of you guys listened to the podcast I did with Bright Side of the Sun, but Suns fans live in fear of J.R.

  • BeefySwats

    Wow, GREAT movement on that play, JR has picked up 3 assists to start thie quarter

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    K-Mart..yeah!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Four fouls on Stoudemire. If we can get him out of the game we can dominate the paint.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    J.R. with the dunk and happy about it!

  • Kay

    That Mohawk is doing good things

  • Josh Hopp

    K-Mart is a great, great matchup on Amare

  • BeefySwats

    Nene HAS to step up in the paint. He’s way too timid against STAT.

  • Kay

    Oh wow another girl

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Way to go Nene!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    I think Nene likes being covered by Robin Lopez.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    K-Mart yea baby!!!

  • Josh Hopp

    D. jones is racking up those fouls. bad.

  • UnarmingMermaid

    Does anyone know where GK got that scar on his lip?

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Yep, the ladies go crazy for those Denver Nuggets especially when they have energy like this! J.R. again!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    J.R. is everywhere!

  • Kay

    Come on Carter!!!!!!!!

  • BeefySwats

    Stupid foul by Carter. FUCK!

  • UnarmingMermaid

    Nice tackle by AC! Look out Ray Lewis.

  • Kay

    GK please sit Carter down…right now

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    That is a tough spot for AC. He wants to keep the energy up, but probably should have just let Hill go.

  • Josh Hopp

    ouch!

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Um..A.C. what’s the deal?

  • BeefySwats

    Stop shooting jumpers Denver, you’re getting into Phoenix’s game!

  • UnarmingMermaid

    “Shootin’ 3s when it’s not your personality”?

    This guy hasn’t watched JR very much.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Kenyon has taken three or four bad jumpers this quarter.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Amare has 5 fouls. That is big.

  • Josh Hopp

    We are bad at drawing offensive fouls so that was awesome. They are a great way of taking some momentum out of the other team’s game

  • UnarmingMermaid

    That 3 by Kenyon was WIDE OPEN though…he has to shoot it. Right?

  • Josh Hopp

    YEAH! WE’RE WINNING! WOOO!

    Come on Nugs!

  • Josh Hopp

    Yeah, I am happy with that attempt by K-mart.

  • BeefySwats

    Phoenix has to play small for the rest of the game with Amare’s 5 fouls and the rest of their bigs in similar trouble – but Denver has to realize that and take advantage of them in the paint.

  • BeefySwats

    Where has Chris Andersen been this game?

  • Josh Hopp

    Billups screwed that play up

  • Josh Hopp

    AAAAH WHAT????

    WHAT ARE THE ODDS

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Does Tyler Perry really need two sit coms?

  • BeefySwats

    Ugh, cmon denver, close out the Quarter :(

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Now they lead. I like AC but how long has he been in?

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Nuggets start shooting jumpers = energy gone

    That is a big part of the reason why I did not like Kenyon’s three. Can we all agree that he is not a 50+% three point shooter?

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Bad three by Chauncey.

  • Josh Hopp

    Tied up!

    Another duodenal ulcer for me

    Aaaaargghh!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Chauncey has played 32 of 36 minutes. He is going to have to sit for probably at least four minutes in the 4th. Hopefully J.R. will come in and work to get in the paint and set his teammates up.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    I love me some K-mart dunks!

  • BeefySwats

    “And I hope to see better defense” – haha George, very funny.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Just what I wanted J.R.!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Coaches never answer the questions they are asked in the between quarter interviews. The sideline reporter should just hold out the microphone and ask, “What do you want to say?”

  • BeefySwats

    Jeremy, what is wrong with JRs FT shooting this year? If I am right, I think he has the lowest ft% on the team this year, and that is awful for a combo guard.

  • BeefySwats

    Great turnover Carter! fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuckkkkkkkkkkkkk

  • Josh Hopp

    Phil Jackson was blatantly rude to the reporter between quarters against Spurs. Get the feeling he is a bit of an asshole. Good couch though.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Why can NBA players (AC) not throw a bounce pass? It is ridiculous to throw a pass by someone at hand level when you can have it hit the floor when it goes by them thus making it almost impossible to steal. That is one of my biggest pet peeves.

  • Josh Hopp

    Our starting point guard has, wait for it, 3 assists.

  • BeefySwats

    God damnit JR, that was an awful 3pt shot.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Hey Beefy, J.R. is second to last at 67% ahead of Kenyon. The only reason I can think of for his poor shooting is concentration. He should be an 80% shooter. Maybe he does not have a consistent routine. I will try to watch more closely.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    If I see another three I may throw my remote through the tv screen.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Nuggets 3-17 from downtown. Maybe try something else guys.

  • BeefySwats

    I hope your TV still works Jeremy, that was a shitass 3 by Chauncey

  • Josh Hopp

    DAMN IT JR

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Gosh dang it Billups!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Thank God the Suns cannot hit a three either.

  • Josh Hopp

    YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Nice LK!

  • Josh Hopp

    jeremy- so true. the suns are one of the best 3 point gunners in the leauge and they are a revolting 5-22, compared to our naueseating 5-20

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Oh yea, I have not eaten dinner yet.

  • Josh Hopp

    we have also missed 10 free throws.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Way to take it Nene!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    This may be LK’s best game of the season.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    LK…that works!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Wow Bavetta was going to call the charge on Birdman and the outside ref overruled him.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Holy carp! Andersen just stayed on the floor for a shot fake! And forced Hill to travel!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    I wanted Nene to drive on Amare so badly. He has 5 fouls Nene!

  • Josh Hopp

    Holy carp, bass and Atlantic snapper, I hope we can close this bastard out

    DAMN IT. lead down to 3

  • BeefySwats

    What are YOU DOING CHAUNCEY

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    I wish I could have bet money on Chauncey missing a three after Nash made his.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Ugh with the threes….

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    I guess Chauncey cannot make the short ones either.

  • Josh Hopp

    chauncey chauncey chauncey. you’ve hurt us tonight buddy

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    And the Nuggets’ collective brain has flat lined…

  • BeefySwats

    god damnit.

    3s are going to kill us.

  • Josh Hopp

    THIS IS ABSOLUTELY OBSCENE!

    WHAT ARE YOU THINKING GUYS??

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    NUGGETS STOP SHOOTING THREES!!! I want Balkman…he wouldn’t be going for threes!!!

  • UnarmingMermaid

    Let’s go Nugs!!!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    NuggetsandRockiesGirl, you are absolutely right. That is another reason why Balkman should be on the floor when the team gets jumper happy.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Nice play to tie it up!

  • BeefySwats

    Oh my god chauncey that was a huge mistake.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Great catch by Nene!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    I will live with that one J.R.!

  • Josh Hopp

    game….on

  • UnarmingMermaid

    they only gave JR two?

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    No more typing. I have to stand up.

  • Kay

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

  • Josh Hopp

    AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!

    I AM GOING TO BE SICK

  • BeefySwats

    jesus. Phoenix gets the last shot.

  • Kay

    I’m about to go to bed, look it up on Yahoo in the morning

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    OMG Nuggets…please eke out this game!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    I had to sit back down. That was such a terrible shot by J.R. he beats Barbosa, has a wide open lane all the way to the rim and takes a step back 23 footer? Unbelievable.

    Nash scares the crap out of me right now. Do not switch on the screen just to switch. Make them set a strong pick.

  • Josh Hopp

    Aky – just try to sleep with this hanging over your head! You’re no kind of fan if you can :)

  • UnarmingMermaid

    Great D…but Jones? WTF??? PASS THE BALL!

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    OT!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Josh Hopp

    over.. f******… time

  • BeefySwats

    fucckckckckckckck

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Great stop but they had the ball with 3 seconds left and did not call a timeout! Come on guys.

  • UnarmingMermaid

    Do these really late games seem to go to OT at a much higher rate than early games?

  • Kay

    Josh I said that mind you I didn’t go anywhere near the remote.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    As long as we have more time, I can keep up more hope.

  • Kay

    Ok it’s late for all this over time nonsense, I have class in the am

  • BeefySwats

    WHY DID DENVER NOT CALL TIMEOUT

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Chauncey!

  • UnarmingMermaid

    Why am I not at this game? stupid!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Classes were made to be skipped Kay. And yes, it took me 5 1/2 years to graduate from college.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Set the pick Nene, quit slipping it.

  • Josh Hopp

    I hate steven nash

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Yea Chauncey!

  • UnarmingMermaid

    Well? Chauncey picked the right time to start playin’ ball!

  • BeefySwats

    OH MY GOD CHAUNCEY

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Come guys, close it out.

  • Josh Hopp

    CAN WE KEEP THIS LEAD TO GODS SAKE

  • Kay

    Yea who needs college? I bet I’ll do great things with a HS Diploma. Just look at Lebron. (God I hate that man)

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Get a bucket here…

  • Josh Hopp

    BILLUPS YOU ALMIGHTY FOOL

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Chauncey I hate you.

  • BeefySwats

    Wow, Chauncey is just exhausted.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    no mo threes please.

  • BeefySwats

    Jeremy, at this point, i think these decisions are based on fatigued. Chauncey played almost the entire game and is now 4 minutes into overtime.

  • UnarmingMermaid

    Chauncey comes back with a big play!

  • Josh Hopp

    YES! YES!YES! YES!YES! YES!YES! YES!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    YEEEEEESSSSSS! Chauncey to K-mart!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Beefy you are right, these guys and especially Billups, are worn out.

  • Josh Hopp

    NO!!

  • Jordo5150

    Why do we feel the need to start popping 3’s anytime we have a manageable lead? WTF?

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    Go Nuggets! We can do this!

  • Kay

    If JR would have caught that ball…..sickest play ever

  • UnarmingMermaid

    This is stressing me out!!!

  • Josh Hopp

    It’s like we don’t like leads

  • UnarmingMermaid

    KMART!!!!! WOOOOO

  • Jordo5150

    “We live by the three, we die by the three”

  • Josh Hopp

    OH! KENYON MARTIN I LOVE YOU!

  • Jordo5150

    The Big Balls Dance. Always a classic.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    I said earlier that we all know Kenyon is not a 50+% free throw shooter, but when the shot clock is winding down he is a 90% three point shooter.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    K-mart I love you!

  • UnarmingMermaid

    KMart is a freakin’ goofball!

  • Kay

    As ball leaves K Mart’s hand “WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!'”
    As ball goes in “Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!”

  • Josh Hopp

    Jordo – “We live by the three, we die by the three”

    You got it in the wrong order!

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    KENYON MARTIN…it is all worth the wait!!!!!

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Come on Nuggets, one more stop!

  • Josh Hopp

    Kay – that is EXACTLY what happened in our first win of the season, i.e. against the LA clippers. we needed 3 and K-mart just pulled up and nailed it. before the ball went in I thought “trade that scrub for a 2nd rounder”

  • Jordo5150

    So true Hopp. Just please do not go down and jack a 3 up here. PLEASE?

  • BeefySwats

    Oh god, that was a stupid stupid decision by KMart

  • BeefySwats

    Jordo, Phoenix is going to foul

  • Josh Hopp

    jeremy – still not sold on that K-mart 3 ball?

  • Jordo5150

    uhhh yeah, good point *hides in shame*

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Yea, but anytime you can catch a shot in the air you have to do it because it looks so cool.

  • BeefySwats

    clutch FTs for JR. Great.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    You know Chauncey is tired when they cannot even run the inbounds play for him.

  • Jordo5150

    I’m not sure I am in love with the high def view of J.R.’s forehead.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    I am happy JR made both of those.

  • http://www.roundballminingcompany.com jeremy

    Yea Josh Hopp, I do not mind Kenyon taking threes late in the shot clock. When he does it because he thinks he is now a really good three point shooter I get a little grumpy.

  • Kay

    Um K Mart is a lil too excited….simmer down my friend

  • Josh Hopp

    WOOO! WHAT A WIN GUYS N GALS!! WE RULE!

    I’m going to be on a huge high tonight (5.50PM on friday here)

  • UnarmingMermaid

    Will somebody tell these announcers to shut the hell up about the ‘tripping’ call. Why aren’t they talking about how we flat out out-played Phoenix in OT?

  • BeefySwats

    clutch fts for JR. Great!

  • Kay

    Josh are you ahead of me? We haven’t won just yet.

    I call this a good win even though they still displayed a great deal of brain cramps throughout the course of the game.

    So I guess Kenyon’s three counts a dagger if you accept that he then took out the dagger and stabbed himself in the groin with it.

    This was a good game to see in person, I think I might of scared some of the people sitting around me and embarrassed my friend freaking out at some of the shot selection. you guys all missed a horrible performance by lisa lisa at halftime so be thankful for that atleast.

  • NuggetsandRockiesGirl

    LOL at lisa lisa CCH! I am sure you didn’t freak out anyone too bad and we were all flipping out because of the shot selection, you weren’t alone. Glad you had a good time at the game! I’m going to try and catch Saturday’s game in person.

    I just got home from the game. What a great atmosphere. The seats were 90% filled up. We were in sec 136 and it was a charged up all night. What a great way to win. How many lives does this Nuggets team have in Cat years anyway.
