In their last meeting, which I watched in person at Pepsi Center, the Nuggets lost in overtime. Denver had sizable leads all throughout the game, including the fourth quarter, but didn’t have the killer instinct or the proper decision making skills to seal the deal against the NOOCH. My thoughts about that game are here.
Along with all the other things that I have talked about in the last few posts, and in this preview, this game is a serious gut-check for the Nuggets. With the playoff chances seemingly slipping from our grasps, tonight’s game needs to be treated as a do-or-die.
On a side note, Carmelo Anthony’s first child is due sometime today. Hopefully, the baby will be born in good health, as well as his finace La La Vazquez, and will bring good karma to the Nuggets. Something has got to give, Denver. Go Nuggets, swat the Hornets!
