Nuggets Schedule 2012: Denver Returns Home After Successful Road Trip

The Denver Nuggets head into the weekend as one of the hottest teams in the league, having won five straight games, all of them on the road. They finally return home on Friday night, where they'll look to continue their recent string off success. Despite the winning streak, the Nuggets have plenty of work to do in their division, as they're still a couple of games behind first place Oklahoma City.
