Nuggets Vs. Spurs: Denver Goes From Playing Worst To Playing First

Last night the Denver Nuggets faced the NBA's worst team. Tonight they travel to the AT&T Center to face the San Antonio Spurs, a team with the NBA's best record.

After a complete dismantling of the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night in Denver, the Nuggets take their three-game win streak to the Alamo City to face a Spurs team who has won five straight.

During their recent upswing, the Nuggets have been playing fabulous basketball, winning by an average of 30 points per game in their three straight wins.

Putting trade rumors aside, Carmelo Anthony has averaged 20.3 points and eight rebounds in the last three games. During the same span Chauncey Billups is contributing over nine assists a game.

The Spurs (34-6, 21-2 Home) have traditionally been known for having a defensive minded, hard nosed game. And while they still have those qualities, they are fifth in the league in scoring, averaging 104.6 points a game. The Nuggets (23-16, 5-12 Road) are first in team points a game, at 107.5 ppg.

San Antonio is led by Denver nemeses Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Tim Duncan.

The game tips tonight at 7:00 p.m. and can be seen nationally on ESPN.
