Next stop, 8,000. Nuggets point guard Andre Miller moved into sole possession of ninth place on the NBA’s career assist list Saturday night when he threw an alley oop to Wilson Chandler in the second quarter of Denver's game against the Dallas Mavericks. It was Miller’s 7,988th assist in 15 NBA seasons, moving him past Rod Strickland. Miller is one of only eight players in NBA history with at least 15,000 points and 7,500 assists. “I think he has been one of the most underrated point guards since he he's been in the league,” Denver coach Brian Shaw said. “He's a guy that just has always got the job done and has always been effective. To last as long as he has is one thing, but to be moving up the ladder still at this stage is a great accomplishment for him.” NBA.com

Wilson Chandler's season debut has been pushed back to Wednesday. The Nuggets forward was hoping to get his first game action of the season Monday against the Jazz. Chandler said he was ready to play, but the Nuggets' medical staff wasn't convinced and put the kibosh on it for another couple of days. He has missed every game this season because of a strained hamstring. "We will be conservative with him," coach Brian Shaw said. Denver Post

Her portrait is tattooed on his neck, but the 3D version is always better. He had to get Jaya with him in Denver. This offseason he did just that. Now? "I can focus on everything," said Chandler, a single dad. "I don't have to call every day and make sure she's all right and be stressing about that." And a stress-free existence off the court may lead to a more comfortable existence on it. Both he and the Nuggets are banking on it. Denver Post

"Wilson, to me, still hasn't hit his ceiling yet," Shaw said. "I've been very, very impressed with, from the work I've seen him do in the summer being here. I didn't realize he could shoot the ball as well as he can shoot the ball. I didn't realize he was as big as he is. And I think he can be real versatile for us." Denver Post

The two now will sit in adjacent lockers. It promises to be a spirited setup as the boisterous Robinson interacts with the calm, quiet Chandler. “He laughs and giggles, but other than that, Wilson’s a quiet guy,” Robinson said. “I’m the total opposite. It’s going to work. Opposites attract.” NBA.com

One of Nate Robinson’s goals this season is to keep Wilson Chandler smiling. He’s off to a good start. Chandler was all smiles when he heard that Robinson was signing with the Nuggets last month. The two became good friends while playing for the New York Knicks from 2007-10. “He’s one of the most genuine guys in the NBA,” Chandler said. “A lot of the stuff in the NBA is about perception. He’s just being himself all the time. That’s what makes him one of the most genuine people.” NBA.com

Chandler played 33 minutes Sunday off the bench, though he started the second half in place of injured Kenneth Faried. Chandler finished with 11 points, 3-of-13 shooting and four rebounds. Denver's bench, which got back the services of Chandler and Andre Miller, contributed 48 points to the Nuggets' 118-109 victory. The mild-mannered Chandler didn't necessarily agree with the foul trouble reasoning, but said he was fine with Karl's decision. "He told me before the game," Chandler said. "I'm cool with it. No problem. I liked starting, but whatever is better for the team." Denver Post
