With NBA All-Star Weekend right around the corner, the Denver Nuggets are quickly turning into one of the league’s top teams to keep an eye on as they’ve won four-straight games heading into Wednesday–with their latest win coming on Monday against the Indiana Pacers. What makes Wednesday’s game even more interesting–they face a Houston Rockets team on a winning streak of their own.
The Rockets seem like they’re finally brushing off their inconsistency as they’re currently riding a three-game winning streak and they should be well tested against one of the rising teams in the Western Conference. Expectations were high for Houston entering the regular season after acquiring Jeremy Lin and James Harden during the offseason, but they seemed to struggle a bit at the beginning of the season when it came to chemistry.
Hopefully, this recent win streak is a sign of things are finally turning around.
For a team that isn’t known for their defense, Denver will certainly have their hands full on Wednesday against Houston and it should be interesting to see how this plays out considering both teams are playoff contenders. There’s still plenty of time left in the regular season, but this will be an interesting test to determine who may be the hotter team at the moment.
It may sound crazy, but it seems like the Nuggets may have the edge in this one when compared to the Nuggets considering the level of talent.
