The Denver Nuggets have revved up their already high-scoring attack to compile their longest winning streak in more than two years.
They'll try to win an eighth straight game and finish a 6-0 homestand Thursday night when they host the Chicago Bulls, who will likely be undermanned again as they deal with injuries.
The Nuggets (31-18) have won 13 of 15, including their first seven-game winning streak since Nov. 20-Dec. 5, 2010. They're averaging 104.2 points on the season, and an even more impressive 113.1 during the current streak.
They last won eight in a row in January 2010.
"As a team, I think we're one of the top four in the West," point guard Ty Lawson told the Nuggets' official website. "I guess right now we're proving it."
Denver has been one of the NBA's top home teams, going 21-3 and making especially good use of the Mile High City of late. Of the team's 13 wins since Jan. 5, 11 have come at home, where the Nuggets have w...

The Denver Nuggets have a glaring need for a real presence in the post. Kevin Garnett, though a year older and slower, would definitely fill that need. According to the Denver Post, the Nuggets have reached out to the Celtics to try to strike a deal to bring Garnett to Denver, but there’s one problem. Garnett doesn’t want any part of a trade that would send him to Denver.
This shot has potential to be the number one play of the year. I feel like you could attempt this 100 times in the gym and miss it 100 times. The strange part is you wouldn't be upset that you couldn't replicate this shot. Not even once. While we dream of making trick shots in games at our local gyms, Gallo is living the dream on the biggest stage.
Bulls center Joakim Noah is expected to return Thursday against the Denver Nuggets.
Noah hasn't played since January 30, missing three games with plantar fasciitis. He's averaging 38.6 minutes a game on the season. I'm a bit worried that Noah is a) coming back too soon and b) going to get run into the ground by Tom Thibodeau. Hopefully, Noah is healthy enough to return...
