It was the Nuggets’ most lopsided home victory ever against Chicago, the previous being a 25-point win on Feb. 9, 1990.

Since Jan. 1, Denver has the NBA’s best record at 15-3 (see chart). The Nuggets are 22-3 at the Pepsi Center, a home mark surpassed only by the Spurs (22-2) and Thunder (23-3).

Denver’s offense possesses a deadly combination of being second in assists (23.9), second in rebounds (45.4) and third in points (104.7).

“People don’t respect us as much because we are not on TV as much,” said Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried, who will compete in the NBA Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday in Houston. “I guess we’re not as big of a broadcast team like the Clippers and the Lakers and the Knicks. I think we made a statement tonight on TNT and showed everybody like, ‘Hey, notice us. Pay attention. We are out here.’ ”
