The Nuggets lost last night to Houston Rocket by a score of 130-125. The Rockets controlled most of the game, but allowed the Nuggets to make a come-back. The come back however, was not enough and the Nuggets fell short. The Nuggets were without their best player in Ty Lawson, but the team played very well despite his absence.
Aaron Brooks had an amazing game for the Nuggets. He scored 24 points and he played 47 minutes in the game. He also handed out 15 assists, and he is looking like a player that the Nuggets need to keep around. He could be a huge asset to this team going forward, and I would love to see him re-sign here. Also having a huge game for the Nuggets was Kenneth Faried. Faried scored16 points and also had 13 assists. Both players contributed to the come-back, but as I said before, the rally fell short.
The Rockets have been bit by the injury bug lately, but they were still able to take care of business. The Rockets were without Dwight Howard, and Patrick Beverley. However, James Harden had 32 points and helped lead the Rockets to victory. Omer Asik stepped up and showed why he can still play and is deserving of more minutes. The big-man scored 18 points and also had 23 rebounds. The Rockets will need their star players to return sooner rather than later if they want to make a deep run in the playoffs.
Well, it is another day and another loss for the Nuggets, but there is still hope for the future. Kenneth Faried is still playing at a high level, and Aaron Brooks is looking like a keeper. Up next for the Nuggets will be the Rockets again on Wednesday night. Hopefully Ty Lawson can return and help the Nuggets get revenge on Houston and lead the Nuggs to a much needed win.
