After This... They Start to Count!

(Boulder-CO) Just a few quick notes from a game that no one could see.

First off, do you remember Linas Kleiza? You know that Lithuanian guy... Well, It was awesome to see LK break loose and score a game-high 34 points! Linas is going to have a big role this year and you might as well grab him on your or fantasy team right now.

Secondly, AI gave the Nuggets 31 points and 10 assists. Big distribution nights for AI are going to be critical to the Nuggets success. Furthermore, anytime the Answer drops 30 you can expect Denver to win.

Next up is how the Nuggets put 133 points on Portland with not a lot of stars on the floor. Denver could very well improve offensively in comparison to last year as they learn to turn up the intensity on defense.

Counter point: Denver allowed Portland to score 125. Still a lot of work to do on the defensive end.

The most amusing part of the boxscore is Steve Blake's eight points. Does anyone disagree that the Nuggets were well advised to let him walk?

And finally, what is everyone wearing to the Pepsi Center on opening night?

Go Nuggets!

I can't wait for Wednesday. Glad we get to start out the season on national tv, and should be able to begin with a win. I look for Durant to be less than advertised. He'll get abused this year until he puts on some mass. I sure wish I lived in Denver and could check out the games, but I intend to be at the Nuggets @ Cavs game in Feb. Thank God for League Pass.
