Listen: Nuggets, James Harden And Jamal Jamal discussed on Drive Time Sports
"Makes the first free throw last year's MVP scoring champ. Six time all star two thousand twelve six man of the year at one point the amazing for a long time ago. It was they broke up the band and Oklahoma City they could have had something going on there for years. Second free throws up in in. Here comes tomorrow, Mary we're tied up at two points apiece. Harris has a high left side. He throws it out on top over Yokich. Now leaves it there for Millsaps Millsap head fake throws right back over to joker. Gotta by Capello puts it on the floor gets down to low block reverse side. Layup couldn't finish his three easy ones. Rebound down a cappella outlet pass harden in the house lost it out of bounds turnover by Houston on the fast break. Yeah. That was Gary hairs running stride for stride with him. And then actually knocks the ball off the air in the corner. Gary Harris has it he'll take a three pointer uncontested jumpers. Good nuggets. Have their big lead of the night there on top five the two. And here comes James harden rockets left or right to begin the basketball game here aren't Nasima high. I'd Denver double teams only throws out of it to rivers rivers. Got it out there by Tori, Craig jabs, Adam once goes to the right hand, and he traveled starting to drive got the ball down before you make take that step. And he didn't do that. Right there. Good defense here early on by the nuggets. Inbound goes to Jamal Murray. Nuggets are looking at tack on dribble. Handoff to Harris had fake on the three gets a Yokich Vic backs up those left side over the Murray Murray jabs wants puts it on the Forbes Austin rivers changes his direction back out on top to Gary Harrison nine on the clock here for Denver Harris, one on one with house stops lost the basketball get it back throws behind him to Tori, three pointer. Jumper miss shorties over to from downtown. Rebound down a cappella outlet pass over the James harden. He's got it out there by Tori. Craig again, we play three minutes. He'll take a step back. Three jumper. Missed flat-footed. Rebound comes down to the coal Yokich Yoka. Chaz it across the Todd line here. Denver gets a pick from Jamal Murray. Throws it to Murray, cutting back doors gets rid of shade. But loose ball comes down to Jamal in the paint. A pass intended for Pragati away loose ball James Hardie quickly on the loop. Here. He goes coast to coast back behind him. Cappella that's out of his hands by yoga to the steel for Denver Nuggets. How the numbers the other way Murray alleyoop to Craig the missed a Bhagat foul by Austin river. Yeah. That was a dangerous playwright there by Austin rivers, who basically just took Tori, Craig right on the air was at Allieu pass Craig filling one of the lanes, and he just it's the man while in the air. That's it's not what you want to see on a basketball court the pace early on in this game as very high and then both defensive teams both teams offensively actually playing pretty well. So it's a little bit of a sloppy start. But that's because both deepens is I think are really digging it, Tori, Craig gets the inbounded Jamal Mary throws it over Yokich back to Jamal turns the corner on cappella takes a jumper that one's up in and the nuggets have their big lead in the night. They're up by five leaking out. Cappella gets down, the lane, got fouled and Baidoa. That'll be on Gary Harris, nuggets gotta get back in transition. Right. And and this is one of the things that doesn't show at a ton but click Capella will run on makes dive right to the rim. They wanna get that early offense from him the nuggets have to be aware of that be running back, especially on a long, long rebounds of and things like that. So that he's not getting run out somewhere to Pella averaging seventeen and thirteen on the season makes the an one free throw and the nuggets leaders down to two at seventy five of the right wing now Jamal Murray. Austin rivers throws it inside the October coal Yokich Yokich hands off behind him to Jamal Jamal gets double team has his past deflected and out of bounds. And that'll be Houston basketball. Coming back the other way Houston's really making the tough for the nuggets to kind of move around the core. The nuggets to rise to the challenge tour is going to pick up. James harden, the length of the floor here we played four minutes to begin. The basketball game harden has it at the point gets a high pick from J Tucker. Dribbles off of that to the wing throws a skip past rivers in the corner now on the paint appellate turnaround left handed hook shot. No, good rebound down in a Colo Yokich again leaking out his story. Crank bad pass. And he goes out of bounds in another turnover here for Denver that'll be number three on the Denver Nuggets. Already. So rare bad, passive, Nicole, Yokich J Tucker has it. Hi left side over to Austin rivers rivers gets to slip picked him cappella drive. In addition the corner of the house, he goes baseline throws it in the opposite corner. Tucker three that was one for three from downtown. He's a corner three guys. So you'll see him on either corner. They'll look for him on the weak side. After the strong side uses back in the lead by one. There's a back door pass incentive for Tory Craig once again it goes out of bounds and other bad throw by Yokich turnover. Number four for Denver. The Houston Rockets once again hard being picked up by Tori. Greg delight to the four. Ardenne peels off to the high right side. He's right in the mid court circle has a Pat pick from tunder moves off to the left hand gets to the elbow. Has it stripped out of his hands on the loose? Ball comes down to harden not gonna count foul I on heart and trying to get it back after turned it over. Hey, basically, just grabbed Paul Millsap arm. And that's how that happens on the offensive end the nuggets probably looking to get Paul Millsap, touch or two here. He hasn't. The office at all inside the Arcus Yokich, you'll take a jumper that one's off the back of the rim. No good. Rebound comes down to Capella outlet pass over to James harden time outcomes, next whistle, pardon gerbils around the defenders gets the paint flops for a call and gets rewarded and it'll be free throws for James harden. When we come back in a moment. Six fifty left to go here in the first quarter rockets lead it by one and we're back in a moment on."
