The Denver Nuggets ended the month of February with 6 wins and 7 losses, trading wins for losses throughout the month. They seem to be carrying on the same trend into the month of March with two wins and a loss, one week into March. On Monday night the Denver Nuggets hosted the Sacramento Kings at the Pepsi Center and small forward Wilson Chandler stepped in for a Nikola Jokic who was sent home earlier in the day due to illness. Chandler logged a career best 36 points with 12 rebounds in the Nuggets 108 - 96 rout of the Kings. Chandler was phenomenal in Monday night’s game scoring 16 in just the first quarter helping the Nuggets break a five-game losing streak to the Kings.
Right now the Denver Nuggets are in the eighth spot in the Western Conference and are in need of as many wins they can get heading into the post-season. Denver’s road to the playoffs isn’t paved just yet, and with the Portland Trailblazers on Denver’s heels the Nuggets are looking to get improve to .500 for the month of March. March will be a difficult month for the Nuggets because of the 12 teams the Nuggets face for the month, 6 of them are playoff caliber teams who will likely be in the post-season. The Nuggets are set to face the Washington Wizards and the Boston Celtic this week.
In other sports, speculation that the Denver Broncos will be bringing Cowboys veteran quarterback Tony Romo to Denver is at an all time high. Critics have been offering scenarios daily, and although the Broncos haven’t said much about Romo coming to Denver, the idea of having a veteran quarterback compete for the top spot is ideal to some fans. The question is, how do Denver fans feel about a Romo acquisition? One fan said that she believes that Romo is too much of a risk with his history of injuries, however; Denver took a gamble on Peyton Manning with his severe neck injury and things turned out pretty good for the Broncos. One might say they are two different class of quarterbacks but in the end, if Denver can get a good deal with some experience behind center, Romo might just flourish in the Mile High. Either way it seems that Denver fans are split on the idea and whatever John Elway decides, most fans are on board with his decision-making.
