The Nuggets got a much needed win last night as they defeated the Bucks 101-90. They are not scoring as much as they were in the beginning of the year, but a wins a win. It was a funky day for the Nuggs since some players were coming in, and other were heading out. Tonight they will take on the Chicago Bulls who have won 4 games in a row.
Last night, the Nuggets got a huge game from Kenneth Faried. He must have been annoyed with all of the trade rumors because the big man went off for 26 points and 6 boards. Clearly, he is going to be apart of the teams future, and he finally showed the fans what they have been waiting for. It other news, newly acquired Aaron Brooks will start tonight in place of Ty Lawson who is still battling his rib injury. Hopefully, he can fit in with the Nuggets and give them the much needed boost they have been searching for.
The Bulls come into the game tonight with a four game win streak. The Bulls lost Derrick Rose for the season with another knee injury, but they are still fighting. Carlos Boozer is now their new leading scorer. He scores 14 points a game, and 8 rebounds. Also, Jimmy Butler is becoming their newest rising star since the team traded Luol Deng to the Cavs. Butler has been somewhat disappointing, but he could be dangerous against a poor defensive Nuggets team.
The Nuggets got a big win last night, and I see them carrying over the momentum into the game against the Bulls. I see Aaron Brooks having a nice debut and helping the team out a lot. I’m predicting a Nuggets win by a score of 107-101. Be sure to follow along for updates, and follow on twitter @Nugg_Love.
