The Denver Nuggets came out on fire to start the 2011-12 season, starting 6-2.
The team then proceeded to drop a heartbreaker in San Antonio and follow that up by playing their worst game of the season against New Orleans Monday night, losing 94-81.
They now sit at 6-4 overall, in sixth place in the West, and the Nuggs have put up some impressive team stats already.
Denver is No. 1 in the league in fast break points (23.7), points in the paint (51.4), two-point field goal percentage (53.9) and steals (11), while being No. 2 overall in scoring per game (101.7).
Those impressive numbers are telling of the Nuggets' play.
It's been high-energy defense in Denver, leading to easy run-out buckets down the lane, and the young team's raw athleticism allows them to out-score the opposition.
There's no superstar in the Mile High City, but it doesn't matter, they are a true team.
Let's take a closer look at the individual performers, how they're pushing the Nuggets' production, and grade their play, shall we?
