Taking the pulse of the Nuggets every weekend
The Nuggets’ franchise record winning streak of fifteen games came to an end Monday in New Orleans. The team looked disinterested in a 110-86 blowout loss, giving up 17 offensive rebounds and 14 made three pointers. JaVale McGee led the way with a double double in San Antonio on Wednesday, and the Nuggets had a chance to win, but Andre Miller missed a tough shot at the buzzer and the Nuggets dropped their second straight, 100-99. Back at the Pepsi Center on Friday, Evan Fournier and Kosta Koufos helped the Nuggets get back on track against the Nets in a 109-87 win. Ty Lawson played sparingly all week due to a foot injury.
