Nuggets Schedule 2012: Denver Has Short Weekend With Trip To Indiana

The Denver Nuggets will look to end a five-game losing streak when they head to Indiana for a contest against the Pacers.

The Denver Nuggets have faded in the Western Conference standings over the last couple of weeks. Since the team went 5-0 on its road trip in January, the team has lost seven of its last eight games, including losses in the last five games. But, then, no team in the Northwest division has been able to pick up enough room to overtake the Nuggets and their second-place standing.

The Nuggets play the Indiana Pacers on the road this Saturday to avoid losing any more ground on the Oklahoma City Thunder and to widen the gap between second place and the rest of the division below them.

The Nuggets are 5.5 games behind the Thunder for first-place in the division, but everything else is tight contest. The Nuggets have just a half of a game lead on the Utah Jazz and the Portland Trail Blazers. The Minnesota Timberwolves, even, are floating around .500 this season.

Still, the Nuggets are barely holding on to the No. 7 spot in the Western conference standings. Maybe the rough stretch will end on Saturday against the Pacers.
