The Denver Nuggets have long tried to use altitude to their advantage, and this season they finally have the type of team to capitalize on the thin air.
With a starting five led by speedy point guard Ty Lawson and an energetic bench that only ramps up the pace on chest-heaving opponents, the Nuggets are 26-3 at home this season.

I could almost--and maybe should credit this to the Denver Nuggets rather than just Andre Iguodala. The play was a pretty tremendous team effort. Iggy just happened to be the one finishing it off.
But oh what a finish!
The Denver Nuggets will reportedly be one of the top suitors after free-agent-to-be Kyle Korver this coming off-season.
According to the Denver Post:
Korver, an unrestricted free agent in his 10th year in the NBA, is expected to be one of the Nuggets top targets in the offseason as the team actively courts players who can fill that shooting void. Denver won’t be the only team looking...
The Denver Nuggets are one of the highest scoring teams in the NBA, and their bench is a big reason they seem headed for a 10th straight trip to the playoffs.
