The Sacramento Kings have been swirling in controversy as of late, but the Denver Nuggets are showing no signs of sympathy. The Nuggets are just a quarter away from pushing their record to 5-2 after dominating the first three quarters against the Kings on Wednesday night at the Pepsi Center. Denver leads 85-64 after three, and the game feels like as much of a blowout as the score would suggest.
Four Denver scorers have reached double-figures, led by Arron Afflalo and Timofey Mozgoz, who each have 11 points. Big man Kosta Koufos has added 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting and has also grabbed nine rebounds. Al Harrington leads all Denver scorers off the bench with 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting.
Sacramento has been atrocious outside of DeMarcus Cousins (17 points on 5-of-8 shooting) and Marcus Thornton (19 points).
