8 a.m. ET: No team in the NBA is hotter than the Denver Nuggets — not even the guys from Boston, who are on a six-game winning streak.
After lurching through a road-heavy schedule to begin the season, the Nuggets (32-18) are on fire. They have lost just three games since Jan. 1, going 15-3 in that span, including their current eight-game win streak. Before that they had a six-game win streak interrupted in mid-January but scored an overtime win over the Oklahoma City Thunder to get back on a winning track.
The Nuggets’ success comes from their breakneck pace. They are second in the NBA with 97.4 possessions used per game, and their offensive efficiency is sixth in the league at 105.8 points per 100 possessions. With a style that focuses on getting layups and 3-pointers, they lead the league in points in the paint despite not having a traditional dominant post scorer.

I really don’t know if I’m [...]
THAT WAS A DAMN BAR FIGHT! After an atrocious reversal by the referees that led to Ty Lawson sending the game to overtime, this game went into a full-fledged bar fight. It was sloppy, it was gritty, it was big shot after big shot, but eventually the Celtics outlasted the Nuggets, 118-114. So much to talk about, let’s get right into it.
