Default How bout them nuggets??

So the nuggets have now won 8 straight and are 22-3 at home, this team could do some serious upsets in the playoffs they looking hella good rest of the league better watch out. with all players usually hitting double figures in scoring. Scary Team! I thought they would be good but not this good!!!

Very solid all-around team. They may not have that one flashy superstar which everyone tunes in to see, but they have a really solid group of players and a couple borderline stars like Iggy, Faried, Lawson and Gallinari. Really an impressive looking team.

I think they are capable of making a run out West this year if everyone stays healthy. I sure as hell wouldn't want to play them if I was one of the "elites" in the WC. They are capable of running you right into the ground when they get that pace going.

Iggy is at a good spot right now. I think he was in the wrong environment at philadelphia.

9 straight* yet have a back-to-back in Boston tomorrow night :/

Still. Gallo, Faried, and Lawson have been playing like all-stars this winning streak and pretty much the entire team has stepped up. They certainly have looked better and better as the season's going on, and show no signs of slowing down. Tomorrow against Boston will be an interesting test though.

Also 8 players scored double figures tonight, with only Wilson Chandler under (at 7 points). The Nuggets right now are the epitome of team play.

Two words Andre Miller

they just got so many wing options that can get hot, Brewer, Chandler, Gallo, Iggy and hell even Jordan Hamiltn can just fill it up so sweetly at times.

If you lose at home to the nuggets in the playoffs, you're in some deep shit.

Here we go again...The flavor of the month team that "nobody wants to play". First it was the Grizzlies, then the Clippers, then the Warriors, now it's the Nuggets. The WCF will be the Spurs and Thunder again with OKC winning in 5.

OKC is not going to the finals without Harden I predict.

I disagree, Harden is so overrated it's crazy. Durant and Westbrook are enough to win a championship. Not to mention that Harden choked on the biggest stage, even though he had KD / RW to take all of the heat away from him. We are playing just as good without Harden right now.

I don't know if you remember who saved the day against the Spurs, they wouldn't have even been in position to choke in the finals without Harden, we will see though.

and I don't see how Harden is overrated, he is one of the best players in the NBA right now. Undisputed top 10 player in the "top 10 players" thread. Kevin Martin isn't even a top 50 player.

Harden was a key player for OKC, but he wouldn't have realized his potential if he had stayed behind Durant's and Westbrook's shadows. I think OKC have done a good job of distributing the offense, and other players stepping up on ball movement so the Harden loss won't have a negative impact on them.

And about Harden killing the Spurs. Yes, he inserted his manhood on the team's collective anus last season, but every playoffs series tend to have their own key players/X factors. That doesn't mean that Harden would've done a job on the Spurs this year too. It could be Ibaka or Martin this time, who knows? OKC are very deep right now.
