The Denver Nuggets have won just three of their last 10 games as injuries have mounted, and they've slipped to 5.5 games behind Northwest division-leading Oklahoma City. But they'll have an opportunity to cut into that lead on Sunday.
Friday, Nov. 17: at Memphis Grizzlies (6:00 p.m. MT, Altitude2)
Given Denver's recent slide, there's a little more urgency to this game, as these two teams currently sit in seventh and eighth place in the West. Memphis, which has been a much better team at home, is led in scoring by Rudy Gay.
Sunday, Nov. 19: at Oklahoma City Thunder (6:00 p.m. MT, Altitude2 or ESPN)
The Thunder are not only atop the Northwest but the entire Western Conference, and they've only lost one game at home all season.
