Post Up: Brewer to the Rescue

Corey Brewer comes through in the clutch and the Nuggets win their 14th straight.

by Peter Walsh

Blazers 99 (32-36), Bulls 89 (36-31)

The Blazers won their tenth road game of the season against a Bulls team that is fading fast at the end of the season. Portland dominated in the second quarter, shooting 58 percent, turning the ball over just once and outscoring Chicago 32-16 to take control of the game. The Blazers stretched their lead to as many as 28 and cruised to the finish. Chicago had no answer for Dame Lillard (24 points, 7 assists) or LaMarcus Aldridge (28 points, 8 boards) who were the difference makers in the game. Carlos Boozer led Chicago with 16 points and 11 rebounds.

Nuggets 101 (48-22), Sixers 100 (26-42)

The Sixers led 98-90 with two minutes to go and Denver’s 13-game winning streak was in serious jeopardy. But Corey Brewer, who has been great off the bench for the Nuggs all season, put the team on his back in the closing minutes and carried them to their 14th straight victory. With the clock winding down and Denver down five, Brewer nailed a 3-pointer to make it a two point game. The Nuggets then fouled Evan Turner on the inbounds and he missed both free throws. Denver called a timeout and set up a play for Brewer and he launched a long 3 that missed but was fouled by Damien Wilkins and went to the stripe. Brewer, calm as ever, nailed all three freebies to complete the comeback. Anthony Randolph blocked Damien Wilkins’ last second attempt and the Nuggets won their 14th straight. The Sixers have now lost 15 straight road games. Brewer finished with a career-high 29 points. Andre Miller scored 21 and dropped 8 assists. Wilson Chandler and Ty Lawson both missed the game with nagging injuries.

Kings 101 (25-44), T’Wolves 98 (23-43)

If a game between two of the worst teams in the League takes place in March and no one watches or attends, did the game really happen?

    That was probably one of the worst end of game sequences I’ve ever seen in the Philly game.

    does anyone know how the scoring system works in our bracket? the leader got 13/16 and we have a bunch of us tied at 12/16. i still have more points than the leader. does one get more points for correctly predicting a lower seed winning?

    Wow Philly…

    Denver’s soooo deep. They don’t even need Ty Lawson or Wilson Chandler. Crazy…

    Rubio still put up 12-9-7-3… and of course still shot 29% from the floor…

    Tyreke Evans is actually having a solid year. He is going unnoticed, cause the Kings suck balls. Per 36 mins he is on par with most every other season across the board.
    Over his last 6 games he is beasting: 20-5-4-2-1 on 54% FG’s and 34% 3 pointers.

    the crazy thing is he avg 20-5-5 for his rookie year. he has had that line 5 times this season

  • LakeShow

    Yeah he had the ball in his hands his rook season. With Thomas as the PG and Cousins down low, they don’t go through Reke often. Which is best with this team.

    Yeah but he’s been injured for a huge chunk of the season, good to see him back now and healthy
