Denver Nuggets Getting Inside 2009-11-02

Denver Nuggets Getting Inside 2009-11-02The Nuggets are hitting the road. Opinions differ on whether it's a good time for it.

After starting 3-0, the Nuggets are heading out on six-game East Coast trip.

"I'd rather have it now," said starting guard Anthony Carter. "I want to have fresh legs. People are focused (at the start of the) season. You've just got to be ready to get a lot of them (road games) out of the way. So early in the season everybody wants to continue to win. I think it's good."

However, Nuggets coach George Karl doesn't think it's the best time for such a trip. One reason is that guard J.R. Smith, who was suspended by the NBA for the first seven games of the season, will miss the first four games of the trip.

"I think the circumstances with having J.R. out and not knowing your rotation, you'd probably like to have this (trip) three weeks from now," Karl said.

It's not so much that the trip is early in the season, but Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin is a bit concerned because the team has three back-to-back sets of games on it. He called that unusual.

The Nuggets start the trip with games Tuesday at Indiana and Wednesday at New Jersey. They also play Miami on Friday and Atlanta on Saturday before finishing the trip with games Nov. 10 at Chicago and Nov. 11 at Milwaukee.

NUGGETS 133, GRIZZLIES 123: Nuggets coach George Karl wasn't too happy with his defense Sunday at the Pepsi Center. But it was a win, and he'll take it.

In a game that conjured up memories of ABA shootouts, the Nuggets defeated Memphis despite the Grizzlies shooting 57.8 percent from the field. Denver shot 55.3 percent.

"Because we felt confident we could outscore them, we refused to commit to (playing defense)," Karl said. "Fortunately, they (the Nuggets players) were right and we did outscore them. It's a dangerous way to play, but we were fortunate to get the win."

The Nuggets won because they have forward Carmelo Anthony. He scored a game-high 42 points and grabbed seven rebounds.

"I am just trying to get wins," Anthony said. "It just so happened that I am playing the way I am playing."

The Grizzlies got 40 points from guard O.J. Mayo, who shot 17-of-25.
