The Denver Nuggets, in typical Denver Nuggets fashion, put forth an incredibly balanced effort en route to a 93-87 win over the Houston Rockets.
George Karl played just eight players on Wednesday night, but all of them logged at least 20 minutes and six of them scored in double figures. Despite turning the ball over 21 times, the Nuggets were still able to turn that type of offensive balance into an important early season win.
Holding James Harden to just 15 points usually helps, too. The red-hot shooting guard shot just 5-of-15, didn't hit a three and turned the ball over six times in the loss.
The Nuggets moved to 2-3 with the win while Houston dropped to 2-2.
