Game 16: Hornets @ Nuggets

(Boulder-CO) Happy Thanksgiving, Nuggets Nation! Tonight, the Denver Nuggets host the New Orleans Hornets in a late night tryptophan match-up that you may need a Red Bull to stay up for.

The preview I'll set the table with is actually quite simple and it involves, in my opinion, the best player in the league, Chris Paul. Chris "The Triple-Double Machine" Paul is amazing! If the Nuggets are going to win tonight they have to somehow slow the Hornet point guard down as he has recorded his second straight triple-double of the season on Monday against the Clippers. Additionally, CP3 has passed out at least a dozen assists in four of his last five games and has reached double digits in the category in 11 of 13 games so far this season.

Another interesting note about the 8-5 Hornets is they have only won two games this year when they do not score score 100 points or more.

Time to put the D back in Denver.

Slow Paul, slow the Hornets.

Go Nuggets!

I don't see the Hornets scoring 100 tonight, so we'll see how that plays out.
