Before last night, Foye had only recorded 12 points in two games for the Nuggets. -Who will take the majority of minutes guarding Kevin Durant with Wilson Chandler still out with a hamstring injury.  Nuggets will likely turn to Quincy Miller, Anthony Randolph and JJ Hickson to guard the All-Star. -JaVale McGee is finally getting minutes as a starter. How will he match up tonight against OKC’s 2013 NBA first round draft pick Steven Adams? -Nate Robinson and Hickson on the pick-and-roll worked well last night. Will the two continue to see minutes on the floor together? Look for a postgame analysis by Peter Sherwill.
