Nuggets Vs. Timberwolves Score Update: Denver Leads 51-46 At Half

The Denver Nuggets looked lifeless in the first quarter tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves, getting outscored 30-18. George Karl's team came roaring back in the second quarter, however, and now lead 51-46 at the Pepsi Center.

The Nuggets' starting backcourt of Ty Lawson and Arron Afflalo has also been great. Lawson has 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting, while Afflalo has 10 points and six rebounds on 4-of-7 shooting.

Minnesota has utilized balanced scoring to remain within striking distance. Ricky Rubio leads the T-Wolves with eight points at the half, while teammate Nikola Pekovic has seven points and seven rebounds. Small forward Michael Beasley also has seven points for Minnesota.

The Nuggets were just 1-of-9 from three-point range in the first half.
