Nuggets Chance to Shine

Posted by chazgarcia | Tuesday, January 04, 2011 | 0 comments »

The Nuggets haven't lost since last year. OK, sure it's only been a week or so, but that's still saying something. Denver is riding a four-game win streak into Wednesday's game at the Staples Center with the underachieving Clippers. After a big performance from Carmelo Anthony in Tuesday night's win against the Houston Rockets, the Nuggets now have a great opportunity to gain some ground in the Western Conference. Denver is to play a few contenders later this month. The Lakers, Heat, and Spurs are all top teams in the NBA and the Nuggets have an opportune chance to make their presence known in the the league. However, Denver also has a fairly favorable schedule against teams at or near the bottom of the conference. If The Nuggs are to make a push to the top of the Northwestern division, they must win the games they should win. That is a huge must. They can do it, too. Martin, Anderson, Billups, and Anthony are all back into the full swing of things for the time being. So the Nuggets have a huge chance to be near the top of the chain in their division by the end of this month. They just need to take care of business.
