Nuggets 5-1 after Carmelo Anthony trade thanks to epic fail by Jazz's Andrei Kirilenko (VIDEO)

One of the many Carmelo Anthony trade scenarios would have brought Utah's Andrei Kirilenko to Denver. Obviously, that deal never happened -- and good thing given Kirilenko's missed buzzer beater from two inches away last night, which handed the Nugs a 103-101 win. In our post yesterday, we noted that the just-started road trip would provide the real test for the new-look Nuggets -- and so far, so good, thanks to Andrei. See his epic fail below.
