    It's not that bad. Honestly you guys lost the game on that one sequence where Horry stole the inbounds pass, hit a 3, JR tried an idiotic layup over 3 guys, and finley hit another 3. Lead went from 2-8.

    You just can't afford to have sequences like that in the 2nd half of a playoff game against San Antonio. You guys are good enough to avoid such dumbassed sequences in the future. Just gotta stay focused.

    Nah, it's over. The Nugs are overmatched. I knew we were going to lose, I was just hoping for 2 wins. I still have an outside shot at it, but the way the Pepsi Center was rocking last night, if the Nugs can't pull that one out, they probably won't win any more this series.

    I didnt like the the play of J R Smith. Just wondering why Karl didnt play Kleiza a little bit more. But I still think the Nuggets are very capable of even out the series in next game. AI and Camelo should be more aggressive and dont defer to their teammates. 20 shoots a piece are not enough for them. With AI and Camelo, you never know what's the outcome. 6-7 games series.

    J.R. Smith will break the heart of any team that depends on him. He has a lot of raw ability without the good head on his shoulders to maximize it.

    I give the Nugs a slim chance to win game 4 and bring back a game 6 in Denver. Either AI or Melo must go off and carry the team on their back.

    Anytime A_3PO posts about JR, I have to balance it out. ;)

    JR was playing because JR was scoring. Our bench killed us the first two games. Kleiza is capable of going off occasionally, but IMO, he's more of an 8 ppg scorer than the 12-14 we need off of the bench as a sparkplug. JR is capable of exploding at any time, for good or bad. We needed his scoring, but unfortunately he fell apart a little there (and by a little, I mean a lot). Honestly, I'm more upset about Karl throwing JR under the bus a little after the game.

    Spurs have no heart. They are about to lose.

    Ugh, that Ginobili 3 marks the end of the Nuggets lead and the Spurs are doing all this damage with Duncan and Parker on the bench :/ .

    Holy moly, Nene with the huge steal and Blake with the huge bucket! Way to make up for the blunder earlier in the Q.

    Come on Nugs, get another stop!

    The Spurs are just better. When their defense is this tight it's impossible to beat them. AI just didn't have it tonight. Melo had 4 charging fouls. Nice try Nugs but you aren't there yet.

    Robert Horry ferments during the regular season and comes to life in the playoffs.

    Forget inducting him into the Hall of Fame. Horry needs his own freakin wing.

    Horry with the dagger. Nuggets lose. Same story, different team, different year.
