Like every other Nuggets fan I was surprised and elated that the team came together to win in the mist of injuries to two of their biggest star players (Melo & Billups). The game against the Jazz showcased the defensive intensity and passing game that allowed a trip to the playofffs and eventually the Western Conference Finals last season. Some have wondered where that kind of teamwork and intensity have been at times thus far this season.
While I'm sure having four days rest leading up to the game didn't hurt, I hope this game can be one thats looked upon in the future for inspiration.
Will the Nuggets continue to "Play Hard" showing defensive intensity like they did in their win over the Jazz?
Yes this game will the spark that they've needed to move forward at a Championship level (3 votes)
They'll look back on this game from time to time but it will be more of an anomaly and they'll go back to being lazy on defense (8 votes)
They'll play some good games and some bad games thats just the way it goes with any team (9 votes)
