Somewhere below Michael Jordan's 69 points in a single game but above the Dallas Mavericks averaging 51.7 points per half this year are the Denver Nuggets scoring 53 total points in a loss to the Pistons last Saturday.

We can only hope that Yao Ming, a perfect 9-for-9 from the field Sunday night for 20 points, doesn't think all centers not ending in O'Neal, Olowokandi or Leslie in Los Angeles are as easy to score on as Manute Bol with a hockey stick and skates.

True story.
