1.What the Nuggets needed to do is get the bench into the game when things seem to go wrong because they are the spark with Najera, Smith, and Kleiza.
2. Nene and Chucky Atkins (hopefully) should be able to give us a boost especially with our inside and outside game.
3. Carmelo's distraction should not be a factor because you have to leave personal stuff behind you when you are on the court.
4. The Nuggets defensive needs to be more physical inside and their perimeter defense needs to play good man to man defense. Taking chances in getting steals should help.
5. We have to make those free throws because those are easy points and can be critical when you play teams like the Lakers and Hornets.
