The Nuggets defeated the Milwaukee Bucks last night at home by a score of 110-100. The win is the Nuggets second in a row and they are playing well at the moment. However, the game was closer than it should have been at some points and I feel like the Nuggets should have blown them out by even more. Regardless, a wins a win, and now Denver is over .500.
The Nuggets back-court has been on fire. Ty Lawson finished the game with 18 and 13. Lawson has continued his strong season and showing fans why he should have been selected for the all-star game. Clearly, he was a snub as he is tearing it up now. Not to mention, the guard has been hurt on and off this year and he has still played extremely well. Also playing great for Denver has been Randy Foye. Fresh off hitting a game winning three he went for 20 points and three 3 pointers last night. The Nuggets back court is becoming dangerous very quickly and the best part is that they are still young.
OJ. Mayo was sick and could not play for the Bucks so they had to get their scoring from others. They got a combined 50 point from Khris Middleton and Larry Sanders. Sanders had blossomed into a stud and he has a promising future. The Bucks played well last night and hung around for a while and played the Nuggets a lot closer than the final score showed.
The win is big for the Nuggets since they are heading for a tough road trip. They will have to face the Pacers on the road which is going to be difficult for sure. Overall, the entire Nuggets team as improved and I believe that maybe this is a sign of good things to come. Hopefully the Nuggets can take their success on the road and grab some more wins. Up next for Denver is the New York Knicks tomorrow night.
