The Denver Nuggets' recent surge has helped them move up a couple of spots in the Western Conference. They seem to have a good opportunity to push even higher up the standings over the next two weeks.
The Nuggets, one of the league's best home teams, will play the first of a season-high six consecutive games at the Pepsi Center on Saturday night against the Sacramento Kings, a team they've dominated of late.
Winning eight of 10 overall has helped Denver (26-18) improve from eighth to sixth in the West and move within one game of fifth-place Golden State. The Nuggets will try to continue their push by improving on a 16-3 home record and continuing their recent scoring binge.
Denver is averaging 109.0 points over its last 10 games to raise its season mark to 103.2. The Nuggets outpaced another team that's among the highest-scoring clubs in the league, Houston, in a 105-95 road victory Wednesday in which they shot 55.0 percent in the second half.
