Nuggets buried by Celtics

Ty Lawson and the Denver Nuggets certainly shot well tonight in Boston, but the Celtics were playing stronger on defense and more consistently on offense. Most of Denver's shots came from behind the 3 point line (which isn't a bad thing), but they failed to make other easier shots and it cost them gravely.

After an all-reserves effort against the Jazz, Boston gave each of its stars a cameo in separate quarters (except for Kevin Garnett) and let Roy Hibbert (14 points, 18 rebounds) & Charlie Villanueva (23 points) get some developmental minutes on the floor which they certainly made the most of, playing tough and smart all night.

Kevin Martin came in off the bench for his 'cameo' and had the best brief showing of all the stars that mostly stayed on the bench, nailing 3's to help secure a lead for Boston. Josh Howard (30 points) did the rest, and while Danillo Gallinari and Andre Iguodala kept the Nuggets within reach, this game simply belonged to the Celtics.
