I truly like our chances. Tonight will be a big game. I know kobe will feel like he has something to prove. The guy plays with a chip on his shoulder. The Nuggets should take care of business though and get the W.

We are on amazing winning streak and besides the one lost to the Suns. Our streak would be front page headlines every single day right now in the Sports Page and on ESPN. Nuggets are still getting over looked.

I think we match up well against the Grizz and should beat them both times we play them.

I predict Nuggets end up in the 7th spot come playoff time!

If the Nuggets get 7th place they will likely play Spurs with a heathly Duncan. Rather then play Spurs first round wouldnt we like our chances vs Suns because it seems like they will be the Number 1 seed considering Duncan is injuried at the moment. However Denver is fully capable of getting 7th seed.

Honestly, today, I'd rather face the Suns in the first round of the playoffs than the Spurs. This is based upon 2 home games against the Suns and I could change my opinion after the first road game in Phoenix.

If Denver keeps playing like this, they have a shot at the sixth seed. Anyway, whether its the sixth, seventh, or eighth position - they are going to the playoffs, and making it while the team is playing well to boot.

Minnesota would have to start playing consistently well or the Lakers would have to turn around their current losing ways to knock you out of the playoffs. I don't see the T-Wolves or the Lakers really posing much of a threat at this point. Yeah, its a little premature to celebrate, but Karl sure has worked a miracle down in Denver.
