Any Nugget fan will tell you that the Suns are the team we feared the most. They basically almost swept us with us barley sneaking out a games in Denver. Their zone defense just completely kills the Nuggs offense and makes them a 1 pass and shoot team.
That game was far more important than a playoff game. Our playoff path with the three seed looked excellent. Now, I'm thinking a first round exit. I still don't understand why we rested Boozer and AK that game. If they were set to play game one of the playoffs, they maybe should have come back for that game and rested in the playoffs instead.
Ironically, Phoenix is the only team to lose a home game so far.
It's like rock-paper scissors in the West: all about matchups.
