Nuggets Paul Millsap out three months due to wrist surgery

Paul missed the Rockets first seven home games with a bruised left knee and made 8-of-11 shots from the field, 4-of-7 from behind the three-point line as the Rockets start their four-game homestand by improving to 14-4 on the season.

The incident occurred with 6:20 remaining in the second quarter of Denver's 127-109 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on November 19 at Staples Center. Houston targets and exploits mismatches as well as any team other than the Warriors, and it will be fascinating to see how often and how effectively they attack Jokic, a middling defender, in the pick-and-roll. "I've been slacking there the last couple of games", Barton said. "We've got lobs, we've got floaters, we've got whatever's there". "He wasn't an aggressive scorer but he was a playmaker for us", Unseld said.

Nikola Jokic added 16 points and 14 rebounds, and Gary Harris scored 20 for the Nuggets. "We were a step slow in the second half".

While Malone and Chandler will be back against the Rockets, Denver will be without Millsap for an undetermined stretch of games. Asked if the Kings let up in the second half when the Nuggets got on their roll, Fox said: "It felt that way. That's the type of effort that we need to have".

Kyle Soppe: The loss of Millsap is a massive one for the Nuggets, and the ripple effect figures to impact the fantasy world in a big way. Denver owns the sixth-best offense in the league, and while Jokic is the head of the attack, the Nuggets spread out their scoring evenly.

Kellyanne Conway warns: Roy Moore's opponent could jeopardize tax reform
It was in 1977, Wendy Miller says, when Moore first approached her at the Gadsden Mall, where she was working as a Santa's helper. Long afterward, I would learn that Kayla had, in fact, performed a special dance routine at Gadsden State years before .

Harden finished with 21 points, eight rebounds and nine assists.

If Denver can capitalize with another spirited performance on Wednesday night at Toyota Center against the Houston Rockets, the performance could mark the start of something big.

Rockets: Houston recalled rookie C Zhou Qi from Rio Grande Valley after he had 18 points and four blocks on Tuesday night for the G League affiliate. Buddy Hield missed his second straight game with a sore right ankle.

Kings: Host the Lakers on Wednesday. This matchup could resurface in the form of a playoff series, and this game will be a useful measuring stick for both teams.
