Like the Suns, the Nuggets don't have any current All-Stars or anyone truly deserving the tricky-to-define label of go-to player.
But after Monday's 108-93 victory, the Nuggets are (43-22) and have won nine games in a row. Currently registered as having the NBA's sixth-best record, the Nuggets are the Western Conference's five seed.
They're third in the league in scoring, second in pace and sixth in offensive efficiency.
But are they elite? Or are they, at least, at a level the Suns are -- or should be -- hoping to reach? Either way, as aspirations go, it's not a bad restarting point.
"We don't have a dominant scorer... they don't have a dominant scorer, but still they've figured out a great balance for them offensively and defensively and it work for them," Suns interim c...

When Ty Lawson was called for an offensive foul that appeared to be a flop, nothing would stop Nuggets coach George Karl from arguing with officials, not even 6-foot-8 Wilson Chandler.
Karl stormed down the sideline to voice his displeasure with the call, and it just so happened that Chandler was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Karl two-hand shoved his small forward as he...
JaVale McGee is one of those players who constantly shows flashes of greatness, but then always finds a to do something that you can’t help but laugh at.
During Monday night’s game between the Denver Nuggets and the Phoenix Suns, McGee threw down a powerful one-handed alley-oop from teammate Corey Brewer over Hamed Haddadi. After the dunk, JaVale decided to face Haddadi and...
He is usually the butt of a lot of NBA jokes and goofed on by Shaquille O'Neal a lot, but there is no doubting Nuggets' JaVale McGee can tear down the rim and is uber-athletic.
Take Denver's recent game versus Phoenix.
McGee threw down a sweet one-handed alley-oop and crushed it on Hamed Haddadi which led to him taking a bow. I mean this is McGee so are we really...
Kosta Koufos scored a career high 22 points on 10-of-11 shooting, mostly from point-blank range, and the Denver Nuggets ran their winning streak to nine games with a 108-93 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Monday night.
Corey Brewer added 20 points and Ty Lawson 19 as the Nuggets matched their longest winning streak of the season.

The Denver Nuggets are rounding into form just in time for the playoffs. After last season’s first-round-seven-game series loss against the Lakers, the Nuggets reshuffled in the off season picking up Andre Igudola. But a nice connection is developing between point guard Ty Lawson and forward Kenneth Faried.

With Ty Lawson leading the way, the Denver Nuggets are on the verge of matching their longest win streak of the season. They'll seek a ninth consecutive victory Monday night while trying to avenge a road loss to the Phoenix Suns from earlier this season.

Kendall Marshall of the Phoenix Suns ripped a bounce pass through the legs of Houston Rockets center Omer Asik and into the hands of a cutting Jared Dudley for two -- insane.
Ty Lawson and the Denver Nuggets will host former teammate Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks for the first time since the blockbuster deal in 2011. Lawson, who is the only current Nugget on the roster who played with Melo, couldn’t contain his excitement for the “huge” matchup, adding it “may be the most exciting game of the year.”
According to Yahoo! Sports:
Denver Nuggets coach George Karl literally pushes past one of his own guys, Wilson Chandler, in order to get a piece of the refs.
