The Denver Nuggets routed the surging Los Angeles Clippers 107-92 on Thursday night, riding 21 points from Ty Lawson and 20 from Danilo Gallinari to their 12th straight home win.
Seven Nuggets scored in double figures as Denver won its seventh straight overall and improved to 27-3 at home, tied with the Miami Heat for best in the NBA.
Despite 19 points from Matt Barnes and 17 from Blake Griffin, the Clippers saw their five-game road winning streak come to an end.
More importantly, they lost the season series to the Nuggets 2-1, a tiebreaker that could come into play if Denver can catch them for the third seed in the Western Conference playoffs. Right now, the Nuggets are in fifth, behind Memphis.
Before tip-off, Nuggets coach George Karl was asked about facing one of his favorite players, Chauncey Billups, his former point guard who was dragged into the Carmelo Anthony trade a couple years ago.
''I hope he has a good game,'' Karl said, ''and I hope we wi...
BEST OF MAXIM
When listing off the contenders for the Western Conference title, you have got the Oklahoma City Thunder, the San Antonio Spurs, probably the Los Angeles Clippers and I might even give you the Memphis Grizzlies. But despite their 41-22 record, including an astounding 27-3 at home, nobody is really jumping on the Denver Nuggets bandwagon. Point guard Ty Lawson says despite the...
Denver Nuggets center JaVale McGee had a monster block on a layup attempt by Los Angeles Clippers forward Matt Barnes in the third quarter of Thursday night's 107-92 victory at the Pepsi Center. After McGee swatted the ball out of bounds, he grabbed the ball and pretended to autograph it for posterity.
McGee only played 14 minutes in the game and had no points, but certainly...
Rudy Fernandez most recently played in the NBA for the Denver Nuggets in 2011-12, where the guard averaged 8.6 points, 2.4 assists and 2.1 rebounds in 31 games. Following the season, the Spain native decided to return to Real Madrid, where he’s been stirring up trouble recently. Real Madrid played against the Zalgiris Kaunas in Lithuania Thursday where Fernandez was punched by...
For so long, Wilson Chandler has seemed to provide only a glimpse of his vast talents, like the tattoo of his daughter that peeks above the neckline of his jersey.
Chandler did it all at DePaul — which could have been a pretty cool title for a player of the year campaign. (“Wilson Chandler does it all, at DePaul! Sponsored by Nike!”) But he never led the Blue Demons beyond...
Rudy Fernandez was punched in the face by a Lithuanian fan following Real Madrid's 105-104 win over Zalgiris Kaunas on Thursday.
Thursday night’s Nuggets-Clippers game is a fast-pace dunk contest. Anyone surprised? As announcer Ian Eagle said of the dunk from Nuggets’ Wilson Chandler, “A grown man move at the rim.”
Chandler’s two handed ****-back slam made the Nuggets bench react like this:

Leave it to TNT’s Inside the NBA host Ernie Johnson, to be the saver of awkward moments.

While the Denver Nuggets' home winning streak already is quite impressive, the quality of competition they've faced during the run makes it even more noteworthy.
It likely won't be easy adding the surging Los Angeles Clippers to that list.
Denver seeks a 12th straight home win Thursday night against a Los Angeles team that has won five straight road games.
The Denver Nuggets are on the verge of securing their longest single-season home win streak in 24 years, and a matchup with a last-place opponent would appear to provide just the opportunity to accomplish that feat.
The Minnesota Timberwolves, though, are one of the few teams to win in Denver this season and will seek another victory there Saturday night while trying to record their...
Ty Lawson matched his season high with 32 points, including 14 in the fourth quarter, and the Denver Nuggets beat the injury-depleted Minnesota Timberwolves, 111-88, Saturday night to stretch their home winning streak to 13 games, their longest in 14 years.
