    Nuggets are Red Hot!

    This team has been on an impressive run as of late! A part of me hopes there flight out of Cleavland was delayed, until the early morning hour, by weather! 

    Nuggets vs. Cavaliers: Denver's win streak now at nine

    PUBLISHED Saturday, Feb 9, 2013 at 9:44 pm EST LAST UPDATED 10 hours and 46 minutes ago

    CLEVELAND — Danilo Gallinari scored 19 points, Kenneth Faried added 17 and the Denver Nuggets won their ninth straight game with a 111-103 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night.

    The Nuggets, who have won 15 of 17, are on their longest winning streak since posting 10 straight victories from March 30-April 15, 2005.

    Kyrie Irving led Cleveland with 26 points, but was plagued by foul trouble. The All-Star guard picked up his fourth foul with 5:20 remaining in the third quarter and went to the bench with the Nuggets leading 72-61. Irving returned to start the fourth quarter with Denver ahead 84-73. He scored 12 points in the period, but Cleveland's rally fell short.

    The loss ended Cleveland's three-game winning streak that matched a season high. The Cavaliers haven't won four games in a row since March 17-24, 2010, which was LeBron James' final season with the franchise.

    Alonzo Gee scored 20 points for Cleveland with 16 coming in the first quarter.

    The Nuggets built a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter. The Cavaliers cut the gap to 105-99 with 1:40 remaining, but Gallinari's two free throws and Faried's dunk put the game away.

    Denver outscored Cleveland 19-5 in fast-break points. The Nuggets also had 62 points in the paint compared to 32 for the Cavaliers. The Nuggets committed 20 turnovers, leading to 24 points for the Cavaliers.

    The game featured physical play by both teams, particularly in the second half. Cavaliers center Tyler Zeller was given a technical foul in the third quarter for shoving Nuggets center JaVale McGee while Faried and Cleveland forward Tristan Thompson got tangled up on a couple of occasions.

    Denver coach George Karl had to be restrained by his assistants for going after the officials in the third quarter. Karl was angry about a foul call that went against his team.

    Denver took a quick 8-0 lead, but Gee, who had scored 14 points his last two games combined, kept Cleveland in the game by scoring 15 of the Cavaliers' first 17 points.

    Cleveland led 46-41 late in the second quarter, but Denver finished the half on a 17-6 run. The Nuggets scored the last six points of the half over the final 41.9 seconds to take a 58-52 lead into the locker room. Irving picked up two fouls in a span of 20 seconds late in the quarter, giving him three for the half.

    Faried appeared to injure his knee in the first quarter, but still had 13 points and five rebounds in the half.

    Andre Iguodala scored 14 points for the Nuggets, while McGee added 13. Ty Lawson had 11 points while Kosta Koufos, Andre Miller and Corey Brewer scored 10 apiece.

    NOTES: Denver, which came in as the worst free-throw shooting team in the league (69.1 percent), made 25 of 34 shots from the line. The Nuggets, who are starting a four-game road trip, are 11-15 away from home. ... The Cavaliers continue their seven-game homestand Monday against Minnesota. Cleveland, which defeated Orlando on Friday, played home games on back-to-back nights for the only time this season. ... Cleveland is 11-12 since Dec. 22.

    Re: Nuggets are Red Hot!

    Faried would make a great Celtic. Denver is a super star away from being a great team. No wonder thay were interested in KG!! 

    KG, Rondo and Bass, for Faried, Lawson and Mcgee, anyone?  Not that Denver would do it with Rondo being injured,

    I said before the season started don't be suprised if the Nuggets win the west They are the 4 seed now ans have a deep well balanced team not unlike ourselves. Denver has more depth up front but they run a style that gives everyone the green light and are always looking to push the tempo up. This is going to be a big 2 game series fror both teams. This game should be an awsome display of open court basketball. Doc needs to be prepared to take 10-15 more shots than we usually shoot for.

    I would take that deal in a heartbeat! McGee would be the least of that deal, so that's saying something...but it would obviously never happen.
