Carmelo Anthony led the way for the Nuggets scoring 32 points. Allen Iverson added 31 points to the effort to help the Nuggets get their fourth straight win.
Nene came in with less than 2 minutes to go when the game was already iced. He got a standing ovation and it was definitely a feel good moment. Usually when I say things like this I’m being sarcastic but really, it’s good for him.
Blazers 95 – Warriors 111
The Warriors are fighting for a playoff spot and the Blazers are all but out of it and shorthanded. Coach Donnie Nelson probably thought this was going to be an easy game just like the rest of us. His team gave him a bit of a scare in the first quarter but he made sure to take care of that.
The Warriors fell behind by 14 points just 9 minutes into the game and Nellie let them have it.
“The last thing I want to do is start yelling and screaming too much,” Nelson said. “That was an exception. I thought they needed it. We got that out of the way. I hope they didn’t put it on TV. I was miked tonight, but I don’t think they could have put that one on.”
They got the message though. They came back behind Stephen Jackson’s 24 points to get the crucial 111-95 win. It was crucial for them to get this one because right now they are a half game behind Dallas for 7th in the West and a half game ahead of the Nuggets for the 8th spot. Guess who their next two opponents are? Denver tomorrow and Dallas on Sunday. Don’t you just love the Western conference?
Heat 69 – Pistons 85
The Pistons were shorthanded against the Heat last night but it really doesn’t matter does it? They were playing the Heat. Arron Afflalo replaced the injured Rip Hamilton in this one and the Heat defense forgot about him. He scored 15 points which is a career high for the yungun and played his normal stifling defense to help the Pistons get the 85-69 win.
This win clinches the Central division for the Pistons. They have won the division four years in a row and 6 of the last 7 years. Yeah, nobody in that division is messin with them so far this century.
