The Nuggets are outscoring opponents by 10 points at home, the most in the NBA. Thats bad news for the Cavaliers, who could be without Kyrie Irving, who has the flu and missed todays shootaround. Either way, the Cavs have won two of their last four and are coming off an impressive home win over the Hawks. The Nuggets have won three straight, and seven of 10, and hold the eighth seed in the West. Not bad for a team that leads the league in road games (24).

Koufous, a Canton GlenOak and Ohio State product, is having his best NBA season with 7.5 points, 6.4 rebounds and tons of hustle. It may not seem like it, but Zeller has his work cut out for him.
Its true that the Nuggets lead the league in road games, but by the end of this five-game trip, the Cavs will be the leagues new leader with 26.
Miles (back spasms) and Daniel Gibson (concussion) are expected to be cleared to play. If Miles goes, Dion Waiters will return to his role off the bench.

Following the Denver Nuggets’ 108-105 victory over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night, the Nuggets broadcast crew sought out bruising big man Kenneth Faried due to his huge role in securing the victory by way of his dominating 19-point, 19-rebound performance.
Faried must have been a bit taken aback when he was informed of his impressive stat line by the reporter, because he...
Welp, I gotta say, this guy is crazy as hell. This video contains about 100 cuss words and other assortments of racial slurs. Doubt you should watch it at work. The video features an LA Clippers fan going buck wild on some Denver Nuggets fans. No idea why the fight started, but the Nuggets fans don't seem to want anything to do with this guy. He proceeds to slap one...

Kenneth Faried had a monster game last night when the Nuggets took on the Orlando Magic. The feisty forward put up 19 points and 19 recbounds in a 108-105 win. By the way Faried reacted to the reporter, you could tell he wasn’t keeping track of his scoring.
His response was short and to the point. All he said was “sh*t”. That’s why we love live television, especially during...
Chris Andersen worked out for the Miami Heat this week, and the team is considering offering him a contract. Despite his age and the fact that he has not played at all this season, Andersen may be able to help the Heat. At least former NBA coach George Karl thinks so. Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports' Florida interviewed George Karl, and they talked about Andersen's possible...

You turn the page, but the ink’s soaked through again. The Cavaliers played a truly excellent first half tonight in a tough place to win, but they fell back to earth in the second half and gave the game away late with some defensive lapses and offensive stagnancy as the Nuggets held on 98-91 in the Pepsi Center. Kyrie Irving led the charge with 28 points, 7 assists, and 5 steals...
The Denver Nuggets are on the verge of their longest win streak of the season but that run has come mainly against teams with lackluster records.
That will change if the Nuggets can get past the visiting Golden State Warriors on Sunday night, and they might finally have Wilson Chandler available to help them out.
After splitting eight games, Denver has gotten back on track by averaging...

The Hawks (20-14), who...

It started with ticket giveaways. I know three people on twitter that got an email or phone call and received free tickets to last night’s game. Myself included. In my section, ticket representatives...
