The Denver Nuggets head into the weekend as one of the hottest teams in the league, having won five straight games, all of them on the road. They finally return home on Friday night, where they'll look to continue their recent string off success. Despite the winning streak, the Nuggets have plenty of work to do in their division, as they're still a couple of games behind first place Oklahoma City.
The team's full schedule is available here, and this is a look at the week ahead:
Jan. 27: vs. Toronto Raptors (7:00 p.m. MT, Altitude)
The Raptors have won two in a row, though they're still stuck at the bottom of the Atlantic division. Leading scorer Andrea Bargnani recently returned from an injury that caused him to miss six games.
Jan. 29: vs. Los Angeles Clippers (6:00 p.m. MT, Altitude)
The addition of Chris Paul to the Clippers certainly has upped the excitement level around the team, and they're off to a solid start to the season. Blake Griffin leads the way in scoring and rebounding.
