I know, I know - some of you are probably tired of my gloating now and then, but in an odd way, I see this as justice :-) Also, these two games are the prelude to Wednesday night's meeting of the two clubs in Denver which will be the first-time back for Melo.
"The longest active NBA winning streak by a team not from Miami reached nine games when the Denver Nuggets beat the Phoenix Suns on Monday night. Kosta Koufos scored a career high 22 points on 10-of-11 shooting, mostly from point-blank range, Corey Brewer added 20 and Ty Lawson 19 in the Nuggets' 108-93 victory."
"By the time Mark Jackson walked off the floor and into the Golden State Warriors' locker room late Monday night, the coach already had a text message from his mother, Marie, who watched her son's win against the Knicks on national television from the family's New York home.
"Way to get them back," she wrote.
From the Bay Area to the Big Apple, Jackson's new team sure sent a message. Stephen Curry scored 26 points, David Lee had 21 and the Warriors routed the Knicks 92-63 on Monday night for their most lopsided win of the season."
