The Denver Nuggets and the Charlotte Bobcats are both teams that have recently traded their top players: Carmelo Anthony and Gerald Wallace. The Nuggets have gone 3-1 since that time while, the Bobcats are 1-1 after their trade.
The Nuggets will be without Danilo Gallinari for at least the next week as he recovers from an injured big toe. On Monday, Wilson Chandler started in his place and scored 15 points in the 100-90 victory over the Atlanta Hawks. Raymond Felton had 16 points and seven assists off the bench. Timofey Mozgov has yet to see any game action yet. Still, the Nuggets minus 'Melo have played with great energy and even some defense.
The Hawks, meanwhile, are coming off a 100-86 loss to the Orlando Magic. Stephen Jackson scored 35 points to lead the team, but the next highest points total was shared at 11 with Boris Diaw and D.J. Augustin. Back on December 7, 2010, the Bobcats denied George Karl his 1,000th career head coaching victory and sent the Nuggets to a 100-98 loss. But that was with Gerald Wallace and his 20-point, nine-rebound night.
The starts at 7:00 p.m. MT inside the Pepsi Center.
