Default April 29: Hornets at Nuggets, Game 5

Coming into this game, the Nuggets lead the series 3-1.

New Orleans at Denver, 10:30 p.m. ET -- The AP reports: Take it from the man who just won the NBA’s Sportsmanship Award, the Denver Nuggets’ historic dismantling of the New Orleans Hornets left more than just the losers red-faced. “In a strange sort of way, being up by that much is kind of embarrassing for the team that’s up sometimes,” Billups’ said Tuesday, 12 hours after the Nuggets’ 121-63 shellacking of the Hornets. “Only because, you play the game with integrity and you don’t want to show anybody up. But at the same time you want to play hard and you want to compete." ... Denver’s 58-point win matched the most lopsided victory in NBA playoff history, the Minneapolis Lakers’ 133-75 blowout of the St. Louis Hawks in 1956... The Nuggets stifled All-Star point guard Chris Paul, whose four points and six assists amounted to one of the worst games of his career, with waves of double teams that induced a half-dozen turnovers.

The nuggets have put no effort into this series aside from the occasional flagrant foul. Is there a mercy rule for series?

Go Nugs!

This really feels like the close out game out to me.


But I ride or die with this hornet team for a miracle...

Well, seeing how this is at home and seeing how there has been no signs of life in the first 2 games at home from NO, I have to think that tonight will be the night that Denver gets out of the first round.

Before this series started, I said Denver would win in 6. Now, they will end this tonight in 5.

This is it for the Hornets, I don't really see them winning this game. The Mavericks are waiting for the Nuggets....

this series reminds me a lot about the nuggets-clippers series from 2006.

clippers win games 1/2 at home (although much closer than our games vs the hornets). we come back and win game 3 at home trying to make it a series again but blow game 4 at home by 14. then we lose game 5 at LA and its over.

After winning by 58 on the road, if the Nuggets lose at home, I will be very disappointed.

Is Chris Paul still carrying a knock, or will he be 95-100% fit?

Carmelo Anthony has passed Wade because of this series so far. It is now

Bron
Melo
Wade

Wade hasn't shown me anything in the playoffs.

Yeah, Melo has surpassed Wade because of his performances against an injured PEJA.

PEJA.

Get real.

If Wade was checked by Peja, he'd average 50 points a game.
