Nuggets roll to biggest win over Lakers with 117-85 romp - Nov 28, 2018

Paul Millsap
The Denver Nuggets have never been better against the Lakers. Paul Millsap (6'8''-F-85, college: Louisiana Tech), Jamal Murray (6'6''-F/G-97, college: Kentucky) and Malik Beasley (6'5''-G-96, college: Florida St.) scored 20 points apiece, and the Nuggets rolled to their most lopsided victory ever over Los Angeles, a 117-85 rout on Tuesday night. The 32-point margin surpassed a 29-point win in 1993. "I thought we came out and just took it to them," Millsap said. "Our halfcourt defense was tremendous. We were not allowing them to get any shots. We could have done a little better job of shutting them down in the paint but overall I think we did a really good job of coming in and establishing what we wanted to do, paying attention to the game plan. And it completely took them out of their game." Nikola Jokic (6'10''-C-95, agency: BeoBasket) added 14 points and Juancho Hernangomez had 12 for the Nuggets, who won their fourth in a row. Kyle Kuzma (6'9''-F-95, college: Utah) scored 21 points for Los Angeles, while LeBron James (6'8''-SF-84) and Brandon Ingram (6'9''-SF-97, college: Duke) added 14 apiece. The Lakers, who handed the Nuggets their first loss of the season in late October in Los Angeles, struggled to find their shooting touch against Denver's defensive pressure. The Lakers were outshot 48.5 percent to 39.5 percent and finished just 5 of 35 (14.3 percent) from 3-point range. And for the 10th time this season, the Nuggets held an opponent to under 100 points. "I've thought we were a defensive team in my head for a while now but this year it is our identity," Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. "It speaks to the buy-in and commitment and the fact that our guys realize that regardless of the offense, when we defend, we are a team that can beat anyone. We have done that against really good teams and really good players. Tonight was another example of that." Up by eight at the half, the Nuggets stretched their lead to 89-71 with a strong third quarter. Jokic started the Nuggets' third by hitting a pair of 3s and Mason Plumlee's tip-in just before the quarter ended put Denver in front by 18 points going into the fourth quarter. The Nuggets kept the pressure on in the final period, outscoring the Lakers down the stretch 28-14. "We stayed in it as much as we could, stopped the dam from running over," James said. "At one point it broke open because we couldn't make shots." Denver led 58-50 at the half, getting a boost from Millsap, who converted a three-point play and then hustled down the floor for a soaring block of Ingram's attempted layup in the last 39 seconds of the second quarter. Millsap had 16 points in the first half.

Stephen Curry (6'3''-PG-88, college: Davidson)'s storybook 3-point contest dream ended Saturday night at the hands of Brooklyn Nets sharpshooter Joe Harris (6'6''-G-91, college: Virginia).

Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum (6'8''-F-98, college: Duke) guaranteed a victory in Saturday night's NBA Skills Challenge competition during NBA All-Star Weekend media day on Saturday morning. As confident as he was, he sure made it as dramatic as possible. He came from behind to dispatch Kyle Kuzma (6'9''-F-95, college: Utah) and Nikola Jokic (6'10''-C-95, agency: BeoBasket) to make the final round. But to beat Atlanta Hawks rookie Trae Young, he needed a little something extra. Youn...   [read more]
