Chris Dempsey

Nurkic: 6 minutes, 0/2 from the floor, 1/2 free throws, 3 rebounds, 1 points, 2 fouls

Chris Dempsey

Nurkic about to check in for the first time

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets most glaring offensive absence is Ty. He's 1/6 from the field, 2 points.

Chris Dempsey

Rockets end half on a 16-7 run

Chris Dempsey

At the half: Rockets 65, #Nuggets 49

Chris Dempsey

Harden is already at 20 points and 7 rebounds...

Chris Dempsey

Hunt has been so successful in getting other teams to play small ball with the #Nuggets. It's happening again tonight

Chris Dempsey

No Nurkic in the game so far is mildly surprising

Chris Dempsey

At 5:46 in 2nd: Rockets 46, #Nuggets 38

Chris Dempsey

Rockets passing been very good; has the #Nuggets chasing a lot defensively. Nuggets gonna have to be more solid on the initial action

Chris Dempsey

Another baseline out of bounds play gets away from the Nuggets

Chris Dempsey

At 8:39 in 2nd: #Nuggets down 38-35

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets baseline out of bounds plays been a little shaky today

Chris Dempsey

Got the second units in, mostly, for both teams

Chris Dempsey

At 3:26 in 1st: #Nuggets down 30-22

Chris Dempsey

Shooting percentages: Rockets 66.7 percent #Nuggets 60 percent

Chris Dempsey

At 4:23 in 1st: Rockets 25, #Nuggets 19

Chris Dempsey

Rockets also doing a good amount of damage in the paint. They've got 16 paint points so far

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets making a huge effort to get everything in the paint offensively. 12 of the 15 points have come in the paint

Chris Dempsey

Lawson and Faried have that late dive to the rim action down.. Faried's scored twice on it so far

Jason Kosmicki

Pretty awesome jumbotron open here in Houston

Jason Kosmicki

With this officiating crew I have no doubt that Harden shoots 10+ freethrows tonight. #Nuggets

Chris Dempsey

Also, #NBA commissioner Adam Silver is in the building to help the Rockets celebrate their back-to-back title teams tonight.

Jason Kosmicki

Looks like everyone is a go tonight for the #Nuggets

Jason Kosmicki

Greetings everyone from Toyota Center in Downtown Houston Texas and welcome aboard to game number 69

Chris Dempsey

Hunt: "We want to open the floor up...and that small lineup gives us a lot of guys who can create."

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets Interim coach Melvin Hunt has been partial the the smaller, quicker starting lineups since he's taken over. .

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets will start: Ty Lawson, Randy Foye, Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried vs. Rockets tonight.

Chris Dempsey

Christian Laettner litterally resting on his laurels is hilarious. #welldone #at&t

Chris Dempsey

Center Jusuf Nurkic still battling a sore ankle, says it is 70 percent. Hopes to be close to 100 percent next week. #Nuggets

Chris Dempsey

All #Nuggets players are available for tonight's game vs. Houston. No players will be held out for rest.

Idea: if Kentucky wins it all, make them the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs

Benjamin Hochman

Ah the time-honored tradition of writers spotting each other behind NCCA tourney announcers (& writers pretending they don't know cam is on)

Benjamin Hochman

I worked pretty thoroughly on this, please give it a read -- breaking down the best way to watch sports on TV today: dpo.st/1xBXJtk

Benjamin Hochman

I think this year, a 12 seed will beat a 5.

Danilo Gallinari

Eccolo... Ti voglio bene pistolgallo .. Love u instagram.com/p/0ahTu6OANS/

Willie McGee? RT @Cardinals: #STLCards share fav shows & one of them admits to watching #TheBachelor! Guess who: bit.ly/1x4cXwh

Benjamin Hochman

Interesting: Al Harrington is 1 of only 5 guys to play 15+ NBA seasons after bypassing college. (KG, Kobe, Jermaine O'Neal & Rashard Lewis).

Will Barton

March Madness & I ain't talking bout college basketball. I'm on that Pluto ya digg

After 16 seasons Al Harrington says "I'm officially retired." dpo.st/1GZd8Jh

Aaron J. Lopez

About to board a flight to Chicago with the legendary @chasesquires. The Windy City has officially been forewarned.

Let's go Barca! You nervous, @masedenver ?? http://t.co/p14kXhnnos

Chris Dempsey

Hunt: "We're all in it, we're all consulted. We all talk. We, the Denver Nuggets are making the decision." #Nuggets

Chris Dempsey

Hunt, on who is making the decision to rest players: "Our organization is making that decision. We're all in concert..."

Chris Dempsey

Hunt: "It's tough on fans... But at the end of the day we have to make decisions that are going to be best for our organization." #Nuggets

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets coach Melvin Hunt on if he expects to have a full roster vs. Houston: "Yes sir. I'm ready to roll. The guys are ready to roll."

Danilo Gallinari

Houston they get me doe!

Benjamin Hochman

Here's what the Nuggets need - new Nuggets.

Benjamin Hochman

I suppose that joke would have been marginally funnier if I had gotten the day of the week right. Not that it was amazing to begin with.

Gary Harris

On this bird headed to houston. Usually sleep on the flights. Whats good twitter?

Chris Dempsey

2nd: w/o Ty/Manimal/Gallo, the #Nuggets were missing 43.1% of the points, 43.6% of the rebounds & 48.9% of the assists since coaching change

Chris Dempsey

A couple of stats: First, Grizz have won 24 of last 27 when Zach Randolph gets 20 points and 10 rebounds

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets F Kenneth Faried asked about resting: "No comment."

Chris Dempsey

Chandler: "It’s tough when you’re fighting together but you’re getting set up for failure.” #Nuggets

Chris Dempsey

Chandler: "Whoever is on the court just got to keep playing. It’s the nature of the business. I’m not a GM; I don’t know what’s going on."

Chris Dempsey

Wilson Chandler, on if he expects the #Nuggets to have a full roster vs HOU with two days rest: “I have no idea what they are going to do."

Benjamin Hochman

Have you guys seen that dress that people are talking about? I say it's gold and white.

Chris Dempsey

This was a heck of an effort, but the #Nuggets will fall short.

Chris Dempsey

Nelson: 24 points and 5 assists

Chris Dempsey

It stands as a 2-point shot

Chris Dempsey

That Nelson basket is being reviewed

Chris Dempsey

Wilson Chandler to re-enter the game when it resumes

Chris Dempsey

Seven quick points by the Grizz has this place rocking and the #Nuggets calling a timeout.

Chris Dempsey

This is stunning. Stunning.

Benjamin Hochman

Now 79 all. Nuggets playing without Lawson, Gallinari, Faried, McDyess, La Frentz and Tskita.

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets get this thing tied again at 79

Benjamin Hochman

Nuggets in it at Memphis, down 79-77 w 5:10 left

Chris Dempsey

Zach Randolph is the only Memphis player in double figure scoring (19)

Chris Dempsey

If they can get a handle on their defensive glass, it will be a huge help. They've forced 17 turnovers & held down almost every Griz player

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets staying close, down just two - 65-63 - going into the fourth quarter

Chris Dempsey

That's turnover No. 17 by the Grizz

Chris Dempsey

As an aside, it seems the fans here have forgotten that they hate Juka. Last time here he was booed to death. Tonight? Nothing

Chris Dempsey

16th turnover forced by the #Nuggets

Chris Dempsey

Grizzlies are 1/9 from the field in the third quarter

Chris Dempsey

At 6:22 in the 3rd: #Nuggets down 52-51. Defensively playing a heck of a game. Holding Griz to 35.3 percent from the field

Chris Dempsey

Grizzies fans getting antsy...

Chris Dempsey

Nelson briefly gave the #Nuggets their first lead..

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets hanging in there. Down 47-46 with 8:19 in third. If Melvin Hunt and the staff pull this one off... wow.

Chris Dempsey

And 14 of those rebounds are offensive. So, a ton of extra possessions for the Griz

Chris Dempsey

Not sure what the #Nuggets are going to do about the rebounding disparity. It's 32-19 in favor of Memphis right now.

Chris Dempsey

End of the first half: Grizzlies 47, #Nuggets 37

Chris Dempsey

#Nuggets have 11 fast break points. Getting good pace in the game

Chris Dempsey

At 4:29 in 2nd: Grizzlies 39, #Nuggets 32. The difference? Free throws: Nuggets 2/4. Grizzlies 10/11
