The Denver Nuggets were able to pull out their tenth win of the season after beating the Portland Trail Blazers last game 132-120, while the New York Knicks weren’t as lucky, coming away on the losing end of a tough loss to the Golden State Warriors (final score 103-90.)
New York Knicks
The New York Knicks just didn’t look to be on par with the Warriors right from the get go. Golden State dominated the Knicks through the first three quarters of play before benching their starters for the rest of the night.
Now, to be fair the Knicks were without their two stars, Derrick Rose and Carmelo Anthony. Rose wasn’t able to play because of a back injury that continues to sideline him, while Carmelo Anthony simply didn’t play due to rest.
But now they both should be good to go for the Knicks game Saturday.
Rose might not play but Carmelo is definitely going to be seeing playing time, so that should really help spark the Knicks offense.
However, his return doesn’t automatically mean New York is going to beat the Nuggets.
The Knicks are going to need some sound play from the point guard position in order to ultimately pull away out on top.
That means Brandon Jennings and rookie guard Ron Baker better be ready to produce, or else this team is really going to struggle with their offense against a tough Denver Nuggets roster.
The Nuggets were able to earn themselves one of their most important wins of the season after beating the Portland Trail Blazers last game 132-120.
Now both teams continued battling it out through much of the four quarters of play, however, Denver was the better team throughout much of the game.
They led 74-56 going into halftime, but Portland fought back with a strong showing in the second half.
But in the end, it wasn’t enough as Portland just came out of the gates way too lackadaisical right from the get go, an that really hurt the teams chances of getting themselves back into the game.
It also didn’t help much that they allowed the Nuggets offense to get going early. Forward Danilo Gallinari pitched in 27 points on the night, shooting a stellar 8-13 from the field, while SG Gary Harris also dropped 18 points himself.
But now the Nuggets are going to need that same exact play against an even stronger opposition in the New York Knicks. The Knicks are a team that relies on its three stars Derrick Rose, Kristaps Porzingis and Carmelo Anthony to produce.
So if Denver can contain them right from the opening tip, they’ll be able to earn themselves a W this outing.
