Nuggets Continue Winning Streak Leading Up to Playoffs

By |

Last night in Minneapolis, the Denver Nuggets were playing so well that the game was “essentially over” by halftime, writes The Associated Press. Carmelo Anthony led the scoring with 23 points, and Chauncey Billups got his first dunk of the season, as the Nuggets trounced the Timberwolves, 110-87.

“We tightened up, buckled down and the defense was great,” Billups said. Things appear to be going great for his team, which is the number 2 seed in the Western Conference, a strong position for the playoffs.
