Game Four Played

I've been known to instill fear
although the world may be round,
we still trapped in the square...

The Nuggets faced a hostile crowd and a desperate Mavs team and come back to Denver after a two point loss...

-The Nugs’ ball movement would’ve made your high school coach giz in his pants on a few occasions. More than once the ball never hit the floor on easy baskets. Rebound, outlet, long pass, score it. Dahntay Jones had a pass to Melo for an easy hoop that will have Donk fans’ clamoring for him to suit up this Fall.

-Chris Anderson was out with “stomach issues.” Damn, I knew I shouldn’t have left that potato salad in the sun out in the Nugs’ locker room. My fault, Bird.

-The Nugs’ overall defense in the second half took the night off as the Mavs erased the deficit en route to 66 points. Part of it could’ve been the absence of Birdman, or the foul trouble of K-Mart throughout most of the 3rd quarter. The Nugs’ guards allowed their Mav counterparts to get too deep into the paint, creating clearouts of the lane and leading to way too many easy layups. JJ Barea especially was able to deftly move into the low block and score over the Nene on a few trips. Anthony Carter had a particularly off night, as Barea made him look like he was in mud, just blowing by him.

-The Nugs’ missed too many free throws, but on the flip side they had many a chance to make up for them with the Mavs’ boneheaded flagrant fouls and technicals. An absolute gift at the end of the first half with three free throws awarded to Denver to pad their lead.

-Linas Kleiza got some key minutes with Birdman out and performed admirably. He actually checked Dirk pretty well when called on, channeling some old Euro “I will not stand for this German aggression” type ish. But as the game wore on, why not give Johan Petro a few minutes and a few fouls? Better yet, Renaldo Balkman is an energy guy who can basically do the same thing as Kleiza. That would’ve freed up Kmart to be in during the key moments in the 3rd and 4th.

-Nene has played down to his level of competition the past two games, and Eric Dampier is playing about as down as anyone in the series. He’s getting great looks, but just clanking and completely bricking layups and one to three footers. To boot, he isn’t getting it done at the line either. Work on the footwork and pump fakes and get the defender in the air and throw it down big man!

The Turdman. The most overhyped 6 pts / 6 boards player in history. Please tell the brand new Nuggs' fans to cool it with the arm flapping at the games. It's dumb.
