JR Smith's 16 4th quarter points capped the Nuggets' 114-105 victory over the C's today in Denver. The Nuggs were up by as many as 20 at one point, and the Celts just could not hang with Denver down the stretch. Paul Pierce was obviously sluggish, whether it be from (past) injuries or just plain old being tired-he was 2 of 10 from the floor for 5 points. No-that's not a typo-he finished with 5 points. The only positive from today was that Ray continued to tear it up, leading the C's with 25 points. The Celts struggled mightily from beyond the arc, shooting an ugly .154% and also from the charity stripe with an equally ugly .542% today. Marquis Daniels was great off the bench in the losing effort, dropping in 15 points. Carmelo Anthony continued his MVP-caliber season for Denver, scoring 26 points on an array of aggressive drives, outside shots and by hitting 90% of his free-throws. The C's finish the big west-coast road trip an impressive 3-1. They now head back home for a day off before facing the Knicks on Tuesday. Tip-off at the Garden is at 7:30pm. I'll be at the game and will post some pics/video sometime late Tuesday night...
