Timberwolves Vs. Nuggets Preview: Nuggets Aim To Down Minnesota Again In Denver

There are nine games left in the regular season, and the Denver Nuggets are still fighting to secure a playoff spot. At the moment, George Karl's team sits as the eighth and final seed in the Western Conference, with the Phoenix Suns and Utah Jazz lurking close behind. Just 2.5 games separate seeds 6-10 in the West.

On Wednesday at the Pepsi Center, Denver will host the Minnesota Timberwolves. A month ago, the T-Wolves were among the most buzzworthy teams in the NBA, but the injury to rookie point guard Ricky Rubio has seemingly drained the team of all its enthusiasm. Minnesota has lost 14 of their last 18 and have plummeted into 12th place in the Western Conference standings.
