Some games need little explanation and breaking them down only prolongs the agony.
The Story: Denver scored 92 (!!!) points in the paint, an NBA season high.
What Killed the Kings: Well, among other things, Danilo Gallinari vs. John Salmons. The Nuggets swingman with a new contract owned Salmons, who turned in his typical snoozer of a game.
Low Point: That moment in the second quarter when Kings fans realized it was one of those games that would get away from the team real quick. And it did.
Anything Good?: Jimmer hit five triples. DeMarcus had 17 and 15. And nobody got hurt.

“Looked like Andre Miller, who is 35 years old, just outhustled Tyreke Evans for the ball on that fastbreak try to end the quarter.” – @itsJonSantiago
“Kings on a 2-0 run” – @CarmichaelDave
“Spoiler: This isn’t a slump for Salmons – dude just can’t play off the ball. He’s turned into Noch’s long lost brother.” – @ARoyalPain
“It is ABSOLUTELY ok for the fans to boo. This is ridiculous. This community has stepped up big time for this team, and they are EMBARASSING.” – @CarmichaelDave
“I can’t believe I willingly put myself through this. I even pay for it…I pay A LOT for it. :\” – @KFippin
