Nuggets Vs. Hornets Preview: New Orleans Heads To The Pepsi Center

The Denver Nuggets will have revenge on their mind tonight when they welcome the New Orleans Hornets to the Pepsi Center. The Hornets are just 5-14 on the road this season, but they defeated the Nuggets in Denver 94-81 on Jan. 9.

Denver is coming off a disappointing home loss to Cleveland on Wednesday. The Nuggets had previously won four games in a row and will try to start a new winning streak against the lowly Hornets, who enter at just 9-30 overall.

Denver is in a dogfight for the eighth playoff seed in the Western Conference and can't afford losing home games to inferior squads. This will be the third game in a nine-game homestand for the Nuggets. Denver defeated the Sacramento Kings in overtime to start off the homestand before falling to Cleveland.

Game date/time: 7:00 p.m., Friday, March 9, 2012

Location: Pepsi Center
