2012 NBA power rankings: Nuggets in middle of pack

The still streaky Denver Nuggets are in the middle of the pack in SB Nation's latest power rankings.

The Denver Nuggets are still streaking up and down along the curve of the season, and are currently on a high as they have won three of their last four games. Still their streaky form has not exactly been impressive across the full season and their lack of a go-to guy in games has stopped them from going on any consistent hot streaks, even as they have looked impressive when the entire team has clicked.

SB Nation's latest NBA power rankings have the Nuggets about where they have been all season -- right around the middle of the pack.

15 Denver Nuggets 13-12 18 W: @DET, MEM, @SAC; L: Denver Stiffs
Denver's still not quite at the point where they can count on every one to chip in on a given night -- each game is a process to figure out who of Andre Iguodala, Ty Lawson, Danilo Gallinari, etc. is on and who is horribly off -- but they're inching toward some consistency. Gallo's shot seems to be obeying him more regularly, and Lawson and Iguodala each had a couple sharp, aggressive games this past week. Meanwhile, it was encouraging to see Denver's stable of springy big men genuinely bother the talented but comparably sedentary Grizzlies frontcourt in that impressive win over Memphis.


The Nuggets will play the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday for their next game.
