Heat vs. Nuggets: Denver hosts Miami in national TV spotlight

Marc Serota

The Nuggets will try to even their season series with the Heat on TNT Thursday night.

The Denver Nuggets will get their second shot at the defending champion Miami Heat Thursday night, this time under the nationally televised spotlight of TNT.

Denver lost in Miami, 119-116, back on Nov. 3, where Chris Bosh's 40-point, seven rebound night and a late four-point play from new acquisition Ray Allen sunk the Nuggets, as the Heat outscored Denver by seven points in the fourth quarter.

The Heat are coming off a 107-100 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night in what was their second defeat in three games after getting stomped by the Memphis Grizzlies, 104-86, on Sunday night.

After winning four straight contests last week, the Nuggets dropped Monday's meeting with the Phoenix Suns, 110-100, to stop the streak. They remain undefeated at home, however, with a record of 2-0 at the Pepsi Center so far.

Tipoff is set for 8:30 p.m. MT, and the game can be seen as the second part of TNT's doubleheader, which begins with the Boston Celtics at Brooklyn Nets.
