Add 10-22 from three it that list, and it is clear why the Denver Nuggets escaped with the win. They also yet again out rebounded their opponent as they called 55 rebounds to the Bulls 48, and again believe it or not but they out assisted the Bulls 26-22. This team has been slowly turning the corner as they have put together a solid last three outings.
The Bulls almost snagged this game from the Nuggets behind a strong 35 points on 11-20 from the field. They put all their starters in double-figures, but they only had 13 points from their bench.
The Nuggets bench outscored the Bulls bench 61-13 which is the main reason that the Nuggets one.
The Nuggets ended their four game home stand an impressive 3-1, and hopefully they are slowly starting to revitalize the Mile High City. The city needs to see this 6-8 Nuggets team win for them to start believing.
