David Hardisty

McHale said the Rockets should have fouled the Nuggets before they got it to halfcourt on the final play in regulation (Afflalo 3P to tie).

Chris Dempsey

And the #Nuggets drop a 115-111 OT result here to the Rockets

David Hardisty

FINAL: Rockets 115, Nuggets 111 (OT). Rockets now 19-5 and the James Harden MVP Tour (41 points, 10 assists) continues.

Eric Pincus

Nuggets need a break - still in this if Rox don't hit 2 FT

Howard Chen

Wow. Nuggets couldn't have asked for a better look there. Gallinari wide open in the corner.

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets down 105-104 with 2:04 in OT

Chris Dempsey

Huuggge slam by Faried gets the #Nuggets up 3 with 1:26 left

Chris Dempsey

DA on James Harden hasn't been a bad thing the last two possessions #Nuggets

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets and Rockets tied at 92. Crowd trying to get the Nuggets going..

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets with just six points so far in the fourth

Chris Dempsey

So Ty is going log over 40 minutes tonight trying to help the Nuggets get a W

Chris Dempsey

In third quarter, #Nuggets started 2/12 FGs, but ended 5/6

Chris Dempsey

Bench scoring as big as anything in this one: #Nuggets 25, Rockets 7

Jonathan Feigen

Nuggets swarming to Harden in the lane. He's finding shooters, but can that make enough 3s? Nuggets up 3 heading to fourth.

Chris Dempsey

At 2:55 in third: #Nuggets 70, Rockets 69... Nurkic picks up two quick fouls and is up to 4 for the game.

Chris Dempsey

Sluggish third by the #Nuggets. They have just 7 points in the first 7 1/2 minutes

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets apparently left their defense in the locker room, found it at halftime. Nuggets 2 of 10 to start half. Tie game.

Chris Dempsey

So, yea, count that a successful second quarter for the #Nuggets. They needed it.

David Hardisty

60-55 Nuggets at half. Strong close -- 17-6 run by the Rockets to end half. Harden has 23 to lead all scorers, Dwight has 13-6-3 blocks.

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets fouls: Mozgov, 3 Afflalo, 3 Arthur, 3

Chris Dempsey

So the #Nuggets are going small: Lawson, Gallo, Chandler, Faried, Arthur

Chris Dempsey

Couple of things: 1. Nurkic is giving the #Nuggets such tough minutes, he's staying out there. 2. Well, we all see what Gallo is doing

Chris Dempsey

Been a steady growing lead for the #Nuggets, who are quietly up by 14 now with 6:42 in the second

Benjamin Hochman

Denver celeb sighting here at the Nuggets game -- THE @NateKreckman http://t.co/wXUrc0AWUC

Chris Dempsey

So Gallo is the SG in this lineup: Lawson, Gallo, Arthur, Faried, Nurkic #Nuggets

Chris Dempsey

So now comes the interesting part for the #Nuggets - Second quarters have hurt them nearly all season long. Changing that = paramount

Benjamin Hochman

Nuggets are leading the Houston Paul Walls, 29-25, after one quarter. Den looking for a signature home win

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets: 29 points, 10 field goals, 9 assists, 3 turnovers, 2 technical fouls

Chris Dempsey

At end of 1st: #Nuggets 29, Rockets 25

David Hardisty

Nuggets went on a 17-4 run before D-Mo hit a three. It all started when Dwight Howard came out. Defense went south.

Benjamin Hochman

The dozens of Nuggets fans here didn't like that call

Chris Dempsey

Gallo wanted a chance to be on the court w/Lawson more, and he's getting that now. Cashed in his first shot #Nuggets

Chris Dempsey

The last time these two played just a few days ago, Houston drew a ton of fouls from the #Nuggets. We'll see if that becomes an issue tonite

Chris Dempsey

To this point, the #Nuggets with more turnovers (3) than FGs (2)

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets 2/9 to start... look a tad sluggish in the opening minutes

Jonathan Feigen

Nuggets, Rockets shoot a ton of fts. (Rockets take 6th most but will move way up with Howard back.) Expect another midnight madness game.

Jonathan Feigen

Brian Shaw said the Nuggets "want some get back" for Motiejunas' career-high 25 on Saturday. Faried returns to starting lineup against him.

Jonathan Feigen

Nuggets a different team at home. Three-point shooting jumps from 30 % to 36.1 %, ppg from 99.9 to 105.8 compared to road games.

Jonathan Feigen

Officials for Rockets-Nuggets: Joe Crawford, Eric Lewis and James Williams.

Chris Dempsey

About 35 minutes from #Nuggets vs. Rockets. Nuggets will start: Ty Lawson, Arron Afflalo, Wilson Chandler, Kenneth Faried, Timofey Mozgov

Chris Dempsey

Things to watch for tonight in #Nuggets vs. Rockets game: Gallo & Chandler on the court at the same time. Chandler would be the SG there...

Aaron J. Lopez

With Dwight Howard still not 100% and #Nuggets getting healthier, gotta take Denver over Rockets tonight at Pepsi Center.

Aaron J. Lopez

#Nuggets PG @Ty Lawson has current streak of 17 games with at least 9 assists. I anticipate another big night from Ty vs. Rockets.

Jonathan Feigen

Many Nuggets changes since Saturday in Houston. Gallinari, Robinson back: Faried back in starting lineup.

Chris Dempsey

Kenneth Faried will return to the starting lineup tonight vs. Houston. He had been a reserve in the last two games he played. #Nuggets

Vincent Goodwill
