Back in Denver, they must be going nuts at the YMCA.

Andre Miller, he of the old-school game, had perhaps his biggest game of the season in the biggest game of Denver's — the Nuggets won their 13th consecutive game, the longest streak in team NBA history, doing so in the second game of a back-to-back. Oh, and the game was at Oklahoma City (50-18).

The reserve point guard finished with 20 points — 13 in the fourth quarter — in addition to nine assists and seven rebounds in Denver's 114-104 victory. Miller made two tough shots late, the second, a leaner in the lane with 1:29 left, gave Denver a 10-point lead.

The veteran guard, who played childhood ball with Bill Russell, celebrated a birthday Tuesday. The new 37 year old was up to his old old-school tricks, making nifty passes and keeping the Thunder players on their toes. He was a thrill to watch, as was the guy he plays behind, Ty Lawson, who scored 25 in the win.

The Nuggets played the night before, in overtime no less, while the Thunder were off. Also, Oklahoma City is really good. Also, Oklahoma City is really, really good in Oklahoma City, winners of 21 of their past 22 at home.

Splitting a road back-to-back is respectable, as is, one could argue, simply making the second night a fourth-quarter game. But the Nuggets were prideful and powerful, playing like they were back at Pepsi Center.
