DENVER (AP) - The flustered Denver Nuggets are tweeting and teetering.
After losing at Utah to fall behind 3-1 to the Jazz in a playoff series they were heavily favored to win, All-Star Carmelo Anthony expressed frustration that he wasn't getting more help in trying to stop the Nuggets' slide to the brink of elimination.
J.R. Smith tweeted: "You play selfish you lose selfish that's all I'm saying about the game," which the Nuggets lost 117-106 after committing 18 turnovers to go with just 13 assists.
Chauncey Billups said Monday that he doesn't see the team unraveling, however. He suggested the Nuggets aren't a high-volume assist team like the Jazz are because they play a different style.
