08:08 AM ET 03.19 | George Karl makes no bones about wanting to play a fast game, and it pays off at the offensive end in historical fashion. It's NASCAR basketball. The fast-breaking Nuggets entered Monday leading the NBA with an average of 57.6 points in the paint, scoring 60 or more 27 times. ... Denver could finish with the highest average of paint points since the league started keeping that stat in the 1996-97 season. The record was set by the 1997-98 Lakers, who averaged 54.1. Denver entered Monday leading the NBA with an average of 19.7 fast-break points and trailed only the Clippers with 19.7 points per game off turnovers. "We like to attack and a lot of our paint play is before the defense is set," Karl said.

It's possible......not really likely, but it IS possible.

They are 2-1 against all those teams this season except for San Antonio......they are 1-1 against the Spurs.

So yeah.......it'd be silly to discount them at THIS point.
