(AP photo) Nuggets falling behind Rockets HOUSTON (AP) - The Denver Nuggets have had success at shutting down one of Houston's Twin T^ers in the first two games ot their NBA Western Division semifinals playoffs. But each time the other Tower has lit up. Ralph Sampson was the latest Tower to shine Tuesday night when he scored a game-high 27 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead the Rockets to a 119-101 victory and a 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven series. "The ball was moving from side to side because they were trying to key on Akeem (Ola- juwon)," Sampson said. "We ran the same offense, I just got the ball more." In Saturday's first game, a 126-119 Houston victory, Ola- juwon broke loose for 38 points and 16 rebounds to destroy the Nuggets. Lewis Lloyd also scored a big assist in Tuesday's victory, scoring 13 of his 23 points in the third quarter when the Rockets built a pair of 20-point leads and never were strongly tested in the fourth quarter. Rookie Blair Rasmussen led the Nuggets with 18 points, 14 in the second half. "It was no contest tonight," Denver Coach Doug Moe said. "We had no offense. We stunk up the place. I thought we were aggressive on defense but on offense we had fast break opportunities early and didn't follow through."
