The Denver Nuggets will have revenge on their mind tonight when they welcome the New Orleans Hornets to the Pepsi Center. The Hornets are just 5-14 on the road this season, but they defeated the Nuggets in Denver 94-81 on Jan. 9.
Denver is coming off a disappointing home loss to Cleveland on Wednesday. The Nuggets had previously won four games in a row and will try to start a new winning streak against the lowly Hornets, who enter at just 9-30 overall.
Denver is in a dogfight for the eighth playoff seed in the Western Conference and can't afford losing home games to inferior squads. This will be the third game in a nine-game homestand for the Nuggets. Denver defeated the Sacramento Kings in overtime to start off the homestand before falling to Cleveland.
Game date/time: 7:00 p.m., Friday, March 9, 2012
