Brooklyn
Denver

[DENVER] — The Denver Nuggets played host to the Brooklyn Nets last night and the homeside took care of business. A 129-109 win has the Nuggs and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Denver's record up to 26-32 on the season, while the loss drags Brooklyn's down to 9-48. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Nuggets. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Mason Plumlee's 12 points, 12 rebounds, 8 assists, 0 blocks and 0 steals in 23 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Ask anybody, however - Plumlee included - and the most important part is that the Nuggets walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Joining Plumlee in the winning effort was Gary Harris. Had it not been for Harris rounding out the Nuggs's attack with 25 points, 2 rebounds and 1 assists of his own, we may have been looking at a different outcome.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Nuggets walking away victorious was Denver's ability to limit Brooklyn's offensive output. By holding the Nets to less than they usually produce the Nuggets made their life considerably easier.

Up next for the reeling Nuggs will be a date with the Memphis Grizzlies while the visiting Nets will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Golden State Warriors.
