New, comments

Denver was out-shot, out-rebounded, and eventually out-scored by a balanced Sacramento attack.

Denver held DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay in check, but the role players on Sacramento picked up the slack to lead the Kings to victory, 110-105.

Denver's offense continued to struggle making jump shots and while they shot very well from the free throw line, they didn't make nearly as many trips as the Kings.  In the third ugly game of three played so far by the Nuggets, Denver was unable to overcome their offensive deficiencies.

The Nuggets also struggled making shots near the basket. Below are the stats for tonight's game, we'll be back with more details soon.
