Nothing great about Golden State

12-13-08                                      mlblogs icon.gif                                               Nuggets Vs Warriors

Me n Hunter 12-13-08.jpgI have to apologize for the lack of Nuggets backstage pictures. In order to get backstage pictures, you have to get backstage.

Getting back there isn’t an exact science for me yet, and tonight’s experiment was a flop.

          

Oh well look at this picture. Not bad from the third level. Here’s your starting lineup.

It was painful to watch the Nuggets defense (or lack of it) last season, that’s how it felt this evening watching the Golden State Warriors. 

I figured the Nuggets had this game going into it, especially at home.

 I just expected a little more from a team with “Warriors” in it’s name.DSCN4844.JPG  

 

 

 

 

 

Ever see one of the time/shot clocks malfunction during a game?

It was my first time.

They bust out a ladder and some poor b’sturd has to climb up and try to fix it while the whole arena is watching, and waiting.

Did I mention the that everyone is watching?

All those eyes.

People like to stare in these situations. It’s like a car accident.

 Do you think this dude has  special non-slip shoes on for just such an occasion?

In times like this, cut the guy a  break and bring out the cheerleaders.

Only they could take the crowd’s focus off of this dude.

With the game paused, the players and crowd start to get restless.

For a moment, the entire world is on hold. 

Talk about pressure.

 The suicide rate for these guys is scary, the NBA really should do something to help these people.

At least he can’t see the stares. He can only feel them.

This man is one of the NBA’s unsung heros.

 

 

 

 Carmello Anthony played just shy of 30 minutes and scored 27 points. He went 3 of 4 from the three-point range and had 9 rebounds, nice job Melo.
Melo 12-13-08.jpg JR Smith played for 24 minutes and scored 15 points.

It was nice to see Balkman developing a groove with this team. He played just shy of 17 minutes and had 12 points, going 6 of 8 from field-goal range.

Linas Kleiza was played just over 27 minutes and scored 6 points. He went 0-4 from the three-point range. However, he did make this shot.

Crazy Cheerleaders 12-13-08.jpgJust before the half, K-Mart took an ugly spill as he was going in for a layup. C.J Watson bumped him and he fell to the floor hard, landing on his right side, I cringed. 

Kenyon looked like he was done for, and I was thinking “Oh man, not again”. 

Then all of a sudden he jumped up like nothing happened, and was back in the game. Let me tell you, the dude hit the floor hard. Props to you K-Mart, better ice that thing.

Melo, Kmart Billups.jpgChauncey Billups scored 16 points and added 11 assists to the mix, as the Nuggets dominate and beat the Golden State Warriors 123-105.

 Nene had 11 points and was 5-6 from field-goal range.

DSCN4892.JPGInteresting fact: The Nuggets are 16-7 for the first time since 1976-77, which was their first year in the NBA. Go Nuggets!!
