It is going to be a very interesting box score regardless of who wins. Where the Nuggets are going to find the type of scoring they will be missing should be a complex problem to figure out. Is it going to be Yakhouba, Earl, or Linas who steps up and scores the basketball? Or are we possibly just a couple hours away from a monster performance from Reggie Evans? There is just no way of telling how this team is going to react.
Another note to this game will be the defensive effort of Yakhouba Diawara on Agent Zero. Honestly, I think that if the Yak, with help from his teammates, can keep Arenas under 25 they have a real chance of getting the dubya.
Not having Nene available is also going to force Marcus Camby to play a ton of minutes tonight. Reggie Evans, Eduardo Najera, and Linas Kleiza are all going to need to have solid games for the Nuggets to have any type of shot in this one.
Limiting the three-pronged attack of Jamison (Who I have a funny anecdote about), Arenas and Caron Butler will be the key to this game. I think that if you can keep them under 60 the Wizards as a team struggle. But, then again, Agent Zero had 60 by himself last night!
