Banged-up Nuggets look to extend win streak over Grizzlies

The Denver Nuggets, like every NBA team that was in action on Sunday, played through the fog and sadness of the sudden and tragic death of former NBA great Kobe Bryant earlier that day.

Players admitted after their 117-110 win over the Houston Rockets that it was tough to focus on the game after hearing the news not long before tip-off. One thing that got them through was the thought that Bryant's love for the game meant they should play through the pain.

"To be honest, when you think about Kobe it's, 'No excuse. Nothing can put your mind off what you love to do.' It's the Mamba mentality for sure," Denver center Nikola Jokic said.
