Well, that sucked. This game gave me deja vu while the Nuggets gave the Suns a good old fashion butt-kicking. They came out strong, set the tone and played great defense. They defended the PnR very well, trapping Nash and Brooks out on the perimeter which forced many turnovers. They played with hunger and focus that led to good anticipation on their rotations which led to a lot of steals. Got to give them their props. Yet as good as their defense was the Suns just made a lot of sloppy plays. For a team like the Nuggets who are young, versatile and athletic; you don't want to turn the ball over against them. It didn't help either that the Suns couldn't buy a shot the entire night.
Key words for the game: Flat, Sloppy. That's how the Suns looked and played.
Player of the Game
Marcin Gortat- 14, 18, 4, 3 steals and 2 blocks. He's becoming one of my favorites. I love this guy! He plays with so much passion, hunger and aggressiveness. That's what you call "heart". No offense Lopez, but I don't care how much potential you have because Heart>Potential. If there was one bright spot this entire game it was the "Polish Hammer". It's like he was the only guy out there.
Unfortunately you can't win games 1 vs 5( unless your Jordan, Kobe...) I don't know what to take from this game. The Nuggets obviously wanted it more. We all knew it would be difficult without Channing Frye and Steve Nash playing through injury. These games will happen from time to time, but this team needs to wake up and just grind it out no matter how tired or worn down they are. For a while it even looked like Gentry had given up. I don't know what to say about this. I thought they wanted to make the playoffs?
Well, good game. The Nuggets are clearly the better team.

VC is good in NBA 2k11 because as the user you can control his shot selection unfortionatly in real life, there is no cure.- Berecki
This game is seriously worse than the day I got fired, went to jail, and found out my girlfriend cheated on me with 3rd string quarterback from Texas Tech.- TheRza82
