"Sadly, the great promise this circumstance should have offered Nuggets fans is going unfulfilled. Our expectation was that the demise of mighty LA would leave a void that would be filled by our team. Instead, the Nuggets have failed to rise beyond their usual middling status."
Yesterday the "new look" Nuggets did the impossible. They beat the Lakers on the road in a game that was broadcast Nationally on network TV. They also clinched a playoff spot. Better yet, they did it with (arguably) their best player, Aaron Afflalo, sidelined. No, you were not dreaming.
