Since when did the Nuggets become punks? I knew Kenyon Martin was trash but Melo, Chauncey Billups and Anthony Carter, too? Like many of the Celtics players, I took great pleasure in watching this annihilation.
“We caught a team that was angry,” said Denver coach George Karl. “They wanted to beat us. They wanted to embarrass us. They were more physical than us. They went at us pretty good.”
Denver is no where close to contending for a title. And their star player is a dog. Did you hear Mike Gorman ripping Melo for his lack of effort and excessive yapping? I believe he said -"I wouldn't give a bag of balls for Carmelo Anthony."
Enough about the Nuggets. Here's the latest on Brian Scalabrine who was nearly knocked cold last night:
“I think they held me out more for precautionary reasons. As of right now, it looks like we’ll just take it day by day. Based on my history it’s probably why they held me out, but I don’t feel the same way I felt (after the concussions). I don’t have a headache. I’m not sensitive to light. I don’t feel any of those things.
The Celtics are sticking with "neck strain" as the official injury and Scal says he wants to play Wed. against the Clippers.
