With the start of the NBA playoffs just two weeks away, the Denver Nuggets know that each game left on the schedule could be the difference between a spot in the playoffs and a premature end to their season. After a tough loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, the Nuggets will look to get back on track when they host the Houston Rockets in the first game of a back-to-back matchup between the two teams.
What makes this back-to-back between the two teams even more enticing is that they are tied for the 7/8 spots in the Western Conference, with Phoenix and Utah both within 1 1/2 games. If either team were to be swept, it could do serious damage to their playoff hopes.
Game Time / Date: Sunday, April 15 / 6 p.m. (MT)
Location: Pepsi Center/ Denver, CO.
