=== Denver Nuggets Team Report – March 7 ===
(Sports Network) – The Denver Nuggets were crushed by the Detroit Pistons,
97-66, on Saturday at the Pepsi Center. This contest marked the first time
since Denver joined the NBA before the 1976-77 season that the team finished a
game without a double digit scorer.
Voshon Lenard, Carmelo Anthony, Marcus Camby, Earl Boykins, Rodney White and
Jon Barry each scored eight points for Denver, which did not have a player in
double figures and has lost seven of its last eight games.
Marcus Camby grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds for Denver, which fell to 22-11
as the host this season.
Camby has recorded double digits in rebounding in six of his last 10 games. He
has averaged 11.1 rebounds in that span.
The Nuggets host the Indiana Pacers tonight. Earlier this season, the Pacers
defeated Denver, 71-60, at Conseco Fieldhouse. Indiana has won two straight
and four of the last five meetings with the Nuggets. The Pacers have lost two
of its last three at Denver.
