Quick Recap: Nuggets survive Clippers

New, comments

After blowing a 16 point lead, the Nuggets somehow hold on to beat the Clippers in a wild finish. Nuggets win 109-106.

That sure was a rollercoaster ride. After a thrilling first half, the team came out absolutely flat and was completely dominated in the third quarter. The team simply could not make a shot, nor play any defense, as the Clippers erased the Nuggets big lead. The Nuggets giving up huge leads in the second half is becoming a disturbing trend, and is serving to undermine the positive growth we've seen from the team in other areas. Still, the Nuggets played with a lot of energy and heart tonight, and somehow pulled out the victory. Three missed wide open shots from Jamal Crawford and J.J. Redick somehow give the Nuggets the win. While I'm glad that the team was able to snap the 3-game losing streak, the team must address the ongoing problems with coming out without energy in the second half. It's hard to be too upset with the blown lead when we got the best games of the year out of Nate Robinson and Jusuf Nurkic.

Nuggets win!
