The Denver Nuggets have been playing well of late -- they've won seven of their last 10 games -- which has helped them build a 1.5 game lead on the eighth place team in the Western Conference, the Houston Rockets. It's far from a comfortable position for the franchise, but it's certainly an improvement in circumstances.
