GAME 5/82: at Denver, Open Game Thread

New, comment

This is going to be short. I'm hiding from a very angry Michiganer.

SAC@DEN, 7:30p PST, ESPN

YOUR STARTING LINEUPS
DENVER:

PG - Andre Miller
SG - Voshon Lenard
SF - Carmelo Anthony
PF - Kenyon Martin
C  - Marcus Camby

NOT DETROIT:
PG - Not Chauncey Billups
SG - Not Rip Hamilton
SF - Not Tayshaun Prince
PF - Not Rasheed Wallace
C  - Not Ben Wallace

Fun bet o' the night: Number of times ESPN announcers will reference how horrible the start has been for Sacramento, failing to mention last season's similarly awful start: +/- 17.

Sideshow most likely to be entertaining: Earl Boykins. You know that thing Fox used to do with the puck when they showed hockey, with the blue aura and the red tail? They need to stick one of those on Boykins.

The big matchup: Kevin Martin versus Kenyon Martin, for the rights to using "K-Mart" as a nickname. No holds barred.

The line: +8.5. Ouch. I know it's the back-end of a road back-to-back for the Kings, but the Nuggets haven't looked that good so far this season, have they? What the hell would this line be if Denver was over .500? 13?

As always, this is an open thread. Remember, open threads need love too!
