Larry Sanders had a game to remember against the Denver Nuggets. Sanders was starting for the third straight game due to Andrew Bogut being out with an injury. He came out playing well, as he had the other two starts. Helping the Bucks in the paint by finishing the first half with three blocks.

He added another five blocks in the second half and finished with 14 points, 10 rebounds, 8 blocks and 3 steals. Easily the best game of Sanders career so far. This is one of the many reasons I am glad the Bucks drafted Sanders. He can go in and block shots consistently each night. He also can knock down mid-range jump shots but is not afraid to take it to the rim for a dunk.

Sanders will be getting plenty of playing time once Bogut is back because he has shown Scott Skiles that he can play and can be a contributing factor with the Bucks.
