Denver at Minnesota

What's up Powder Blue! Let me start by saying that I'm glad to be a contributor for the Powder Blue News and that I'll do my best to bring the 'unbiased' news side of the Denver Nuggets. But I mean, honestly, how unbiased can you really be on a site that is all about one team? C'mon, now.

Alright. Let's get down to business. Timberwolves tonight. For the past two years, this has been a good thing, with Denver sweeping the series for both years. This year, however, has been a different story. Minnesota stole a 106-100 victory this year in Denver on November 29, so they look to split the series this year.

Key fact: Minnesota is on a six game losing streak, including a six game losing streak at home. The game is in Minnesota. This can mean one of two things. Either the T-Wolves are sick and tired of losing, or they do not change a thing and roll over tonight. While I don't expect the latter to happen, you have to keep in mind that Denver is playing without their leading rebounder and their coach. The success of the Nuggets is going to depend heavily on the performance of Carmelo Anthony.
