Nuggets Vs. Thunder: A Playoff Preview?

The Denver Nuggets and the Oklahoma City Thunder play their last regular season contest, but this will likely be one of the first round playoff matchups in a couple of weeks. The Thunder are currently the No. 4 team in the Western Conference, while the Nuggets are the No. 5 team.

So far the Nuggets have lost two of three games, losing the most recent one. They first played on Christmas Night when the Nuggets were without Carmelo Anthony (his sister had passed away recently) and saw Kevin Durant put up 44 points on the scoreboard. The Nuggets took a Jan. 19 contest, 112-107.

The Nuggets enter this game with wins in seven of their last eight games--that one loss coming at the hands of the Thunder, 101-94, on Tuesday. The Thunder, meanwhile, enter this game on a two-game winning streak after picking up back-to-back losses last weekend.

Tip-off is at 6:00 p.m. MT.
