Playmaking by Gallo right there..

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

Chris Dempsey

No one more frustrated tonight on either team than Afflalo is..

Chris Dempsey

Houston had nary a bench point in the first half. None.

Chris Dempsey

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

Chris Dempsey

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

Benjamin Hochman

The Houston Paul Walls are coming back (DEN 60, HPW 54) #thepeopleschamp

Chris Dempsey

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

Chris Dempsey

Arthur coming in for Mozgov..

Chris Dempsey

Wilson Chandler looking for a foul after than one, and probably should have gotten it

Chris Dempsey

This tweet is weird, but true: With Nurkic out, Dwight Howard goes straight to work in the post, scores back-to-back buckets

Chris Dempsey

And as i say that, Nurkic comes off after picking up a 2nd foul.. He's got 2 points and 6 rebounds in 10 minutes, & been solid in the post

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

Chris Dempsey

He's 3/3, all three from beyond the arc, with 9 points off the bench

Chris Dempsey

Gallo playing with the focus of player that wants more time -- and is out to prove it

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

Darrell Arthur picks up a technical foul, too.

Chris Dempsey

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

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

On the court: Lawson, Gallo, Arthur, Hickson, Nurkic

Chris Dempsey

Harden looking like he's about to have one of those Harden nights..

Chris Dempsey

Nick Johnson comes in and AAA takes him right to the post...

Chris Dempsey

This is pretty sloppy out of both teams right now. Rockets up 12-10 at 5:35 in first

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

Chris Dempsey

All six of the Rockets points have come in the paint

Chris Dempsey

Alrigh. Here we go from the Pepsi Center

Jason Kosmicki

#GrayShirts tonight are Joe Crawford (no relation to Cindy) Eric Lewis (no relation to Lennox) James Williams (no relation to Vanessa)...-3

Jason Kosmicki

OH-Ficial Starting lineups Chandler/ Faried/ Mozgov/ AAA/ Ty....Ariza/ Montiejunas/ Howard/ Harden/ Beverly

Chris Dempsey

Rockets will start: Patrick Beverley, James Harden, Trevor Ariza, Donatas Motiejunas, Dwight Howard

Chris Dempsey

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

Chris Dempsey

Also, more Darrell Arthur at SF. This really isn't new, he's played a lot of 3 this season. But was mentioned again so I'm mentioning it too

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...

Jason Kosmicki

Greetings everyone from Pepsi Center in the historic lower downtown district in Denver Colorado and welcome aboard to game number 25

Nate Robinson

#GameDay lets get it .. Need this win like old

Aaron J. Lopez

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

Benjamin Hochman

Sometimes, it's how it's said. This quote from the Bears player about accepting an early death was startling: dpo.st/1BZbSqx

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.

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

Benjamin Hochman

Brian Shaw tells @Chris Dempsey that Kenneth Faried will be in the starting lineup tonight vs HOU

Ty Lawson

Had a blast at the Dick's event last night for the fans. Now it's time to focus on Houston... sqor.com/posts/8005679f… http://t.co/L5lH7u3VAA

Benjamin Hochman

Actually, wait, the British Office episode "Training," when they sit in the circle all day and Gervais goes home to get the guitar. That's 1

Benjamin Hochman

Some comedies: Curb's Crazee Eyez, Dick Van Dyke's That's My Boy drama: West Wing unknown soldier

Benjamin Hochman

It can be any TV show, comedy, drama, whatever. Just looking for the best episode ever

Benjamin Hochman

Can't sleep, so ... Let's play: what's the best EPISODE in TV history? Seinfeld The Contest? Mary Tyler Moore Chuckles The Clown?

Kenneth Faried

Chris Dempsey

Meanwhile, Wilson Chandler (illness) is feeling much better. Keeping food down now, etc., which wasn't happening a couple days ago.

Chris Dempsey

Faried and Gallo are, in fact, in vs. the Rockets tomorrow. Gallo says he's still feeling discomfort but will just play thru it. #Nuggets

Benjamin Hochman

Apparently the Rockies know something about Daniel D that I don't (though he does glove)

Chris Dempsey

Both Kenneth Faried (ankle), & Danilo Gallinari (knee) returned to practice today. Looking good to be available vs. Houston. More soon.

Benjamin Hochman

In that Starbucks lovers song, every time she says "oh my god, look at that ..." I think she's gonna say "butt" and bust into Baby Got Back.

Aaron J. Lopez

Chris Mullin to Kings makes plenty of sense considering he and GM Pete D'Alessandro were together in Golden St. and at St. John's.

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets 10-14 record this season breaks down in these three streaks: 1-6, 8-2, 1-6

Chris Dempsey

And the #Nuggets drop a 99-91 decision to the Spurs

Benjamin Hochman

That's an actual person!

Benjamin Hochman

Jusef Nurkic is having a quarter!!!

Chris Dempsey

Nukic playing a nice fourth... But the #Nuggets giving up too many high percentage buckets on the other end

Benjamin Hochman

Nuggets fighting back, now down 77-72 to Spurs with 6:08 left

Chris Dempsey

So... the #Nuggets trying to claw their way back in this one. Closing it down to 5 with 6:26 left in the fourth. They had been down by 16

Benjamin Hochman

The score, with 7:34 left in the third, is Spurs 55, Nuggets 38

Chris Dempsey

Spurs out 10-4 to start the third and are pushing this lead close to 20

Chris Dempsey

Ty Lawson suffered a left eye laceration, but will play in the second half #Nuggets

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets narrowly missing tying their season low in points in a first half. The low is 33.

Jason Kosmicki

#Nuggets get outscored 17-5 over the last 7 minutes of the 2nd Q and trail 45-34 at the half

Chris Dempsey

First half not going down as a work of art for either team, but the Spurs will take their 45-34 halftime lead.

Chris Dempsey

NateRob's back getting tested in his first game back. He's taking a lot of hits on it
