2-0: I'll Take It!
(Boulder-CO) Despite the fact that it was the ugliest game possibly ever, I'm still happy the Nuggets were able to beat the Suns, 77-72, outside at Indian Wells. The game was windy with both teams missing a star player or two and the result was a terribly low shooting percentage by all who braved the elements.
In fact, the game was so hard to watch I would like to just mention one player who stood out. Robin Lopez of the Phoenix Suns absolutely played fantastic! He swatted Nene, The Birdman, Linas Kleiza, Mateen Cleaves, and assorted other Nuggets on his way to an eight point - seven rejection evening that fit nicely with his five rebounds.
