The Quick Cap: Denver Nuggets 122, Sacramento Kings 93

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.

“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
