Nuggets looking for 4th straight win, should be a good game!
copy and pasted from www.denverstiffs.com
Last year the Nuggets lost twice to the New Orleans Hornets. A Hornets team that was substantially less talented than the one they face tonight at the Pepsi Center. It was those frustrating, mind bending, weird things that you just can't comprehend. Yes, Monty Williams is proving to be a good coach ... and for those who are pre-disposed to a certain point of view regarding Nuggets' coach George Karl the outcome of last season's games was not surprising. However, onward and upward. This season's model of Hornet comes with a shiny new package.
Or at least it did. Injuries have taken out star-ish guard Eric Gordon and No. 1 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft Anthony Davis (questionable, left ankle stress reaction) so ... yeah. What we are left with is a hodge podge of various players, some talented bench draft picks (namely Austin Rivers who has been recently exiled to the bench and replaced by Roger Mason Jr.) and everybody's favorite non power, power forward Ryan Anderson. He of the constant "we should trade for him" talk that a lot of Stiffs readers participated in (not advocated in any way by Stiffs management nor its subsidiary companies such as Stiff-u-Ware and Be-a-Stiff).
