Nuggets attempt to get back on track

Nuggets fans may have reason to worry. Two mediocre teams, two mediocre performances by Denver in California this past week. The Nuggets lost in Los Angeles to the 12-24 Clippers and proceeded to fall to the Sacramento Kings who currently have a 8-26 record. Now, those games are in the past. The Nuggets start a four-game home stretch beginning with the New Orleans Hornets tonight. This game is very important. Not only is it important because of the Nuggets' team morale, but also because the Hornets are in the mix at the top of the Western Conference tied with Denver for the sixth seed. For me, it is never too early to start talking about playoff position. Every game counts. One game can mean the difference between playoff basketball, and sitting on your couch playing Call of Duty in May. So the Nuggets need a win tonight to start off their home stretch. Phoenix, Miami, and Cleveland all come to town this week. If the Nuggets continue to lose games they should win, it makes it that much harder to be among some of the NBA's elite teams. It will be exciting to see how things pan out this week.
Also, here's a little tip if you ever find yourself writing a sports blog. Do not do it during a playoff football game! For obvious reasons, of course, it can get a little distracting. So let me know what you think of the blog or if you have any suggestions. I'm on twitter so follow @charlesagarcia. Thanks for taking the time to read this short blog. Keep coming back! Thanks!
