Nuggets don't just kill in game four -- they assassinate

The strange confidence that inspired me to write a blog yesterday entitled "Why the Nuggets Will Win Game Four Against the Hornets Tonight" was more than justified by the team's historic performance last night. By any objective measure, the game was horrible -- but I reveled in every glorious minute. It's been so long since the last 58-point victory margin in an NBA playoff game that the two squads involved in the earlier contest -- the St. Louis Hawks and the Minneapolis Lakers -- have played in different cities for more than forty years.

Simply put, this series is over. Watch the clip above to enjoy the reasons why.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
