Denver keeps on rolling towards the postseason with a huge 113-96 win over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night in Salt Lake City, Utah. The surging Nuggets push their record to 51-24 (3rd in the western conference) on the season.
The highlight of the night goes to Andre Miller and Kenneth Faried. The teammates connected on a half-court lob and the rest is history.
Andre Miller has been one of the NBA’s most dynamic passers over the last decade or so, and Kenneth Faried has emerged as one of the association’s most explosive dunkers. Watching these two hook up from 50-feet with such ease is an amazing thing to watch.
This big-time finish pushed the Nuggets’ lead to 71-56 with about 5 minutes to play in the 3rd quarter. Denver cruised to their 2nd straight win with help from Faried, who had 19 points and 8 rebounds, and Miller, who chipped in with 13 points and 6 dimes on the night.
The Nuggets have become the NBA’s most exciting teams (sorry Clippers’ fans, but they have) and a battle between them and the Golden State Warriors seems imminent for the post-season.

The Nuggets are still marching along nicely into the playoffs. They got the win last night over the Dallas Mavericks, but they may have lost Danilo Gallinari. As Gallinari was driving to the basket, his knee buckled awkwardly, and Gallinari couldn't even take another step with that leg. Gallinari's reaction makes the knee injury look serious. The team will have him...
Danilo Gallinari and the Denver Nuggets have really perfected the NBA’s best celebration, and I can and will watch this on repeat for the next 24 hours. It is hard not to smile or laugh like a little child after seeing the Nuggets bench erupt in what is now being dubbed the ‘Italian celebration.” The kiss from Danilo is priceless.

Danilo Gallinari warned for pathetic flop...
The Denver Nuggets' Andre Iguodala decided to add a few style points on a standard dribble-drive to the hole, finishing with a reverse two-handed dunk.
When JaVale McGee was on the Washington Wizards, he provided us with almost weekly entertainment in the form of some sort of outrageously awful play, a boneheaded decision or some off-the-court drama. When he joined the Denver Nuggets, he cleaned up his act a bit and proved that he could actually contribute to an NBA team.
He is more successful in Denver, but you can tell there...
