The Denver Nuggets were looking to extend their 9 game win streak to 10 if they could have beaten the Boston Celtics. It didn’t happen. The Nuggets have played some mighty fine basketball lately, They were on a run and winning game after game, they got to 9 wins in a row and were looking to get their latest win streak to double digits. They fell short of that with a 118-114 loss to the Boston Celtics in a game at the Garden a place that the Celtics have stopped plenty of NBA teams cold in their tracks at over the years.
The Nuggets gave Boston all they could deal with in this game. Ty Lawson played lights out in the Garden scoring 29 points and he also had 6 rebounds and 9 assists. Lawson was doing what he could to get the Nuggets to 10 in a row, he just needed a little more help trying to stop the Celtics defensively.
Danilo Gallinari scored and had 10 rebounds and 3 assists. The Nuggets also got 40 points from their bench tonight too. If the Nuggets defense could have just slowed down Paul Pierce a bit, maybe we would be talking 10 wins in a row tonight. Pierce put in 27 points for the Celtics and that was enough to hand the Nuggets their first loss in the Month of February.
