<u>Storylines</u>
1) Will the Nuggets have the energy to match a Hornets team that would love to play the spoiler role on the second night of back to back road games?
2) Will the Nuggets defense improve after the past few poor performances?
3) The Nuggets should win this type of game by double digits.
