Bulls-Nuggets: Denver Pulls Away In Fourth Quarter To Beat Chicago
Huffington Post - over 3 years
DENVER (AP) — Once Nate Robinson stopped worrying about missing shots, he started making them, and the timing couldn't have been better.
Robinson and Jordan Hamilton each hit back-to-back 3-pointers to start the fourth quarter, helping the Denver Nuggets pull away for a 97-87 victory against the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night. "I've been battling little injuries, and been in a little slump, not wanting to take the shots I usually take just because I didn't want to miss them and hurt my team," said Robinson, who scored 10 of his 11 points in the fourth quarter.
"But I got to the stage where I'm like, 'Forget it. Just play and be you,'" he said. "I'm no longer going to worry about missing shots. I'm just going to shoot when I'm open and play aggressive, get my teammates involved and play as hard as I can for as long as I can and enjoy the minutes that I get."
Hamilton finished with 17 points to lead the Nuggets, who won their seventh straight against the Bulls at the Pepsi Center.
