Nugs should rest their starters in Orlando

I don't know what everybody else on Stiffs thinks but I am highly in favor of the Nugs resting their starters for the game in Orlando.  As long as the Nugs take care of business tonight in Toronto, throwing the game in Orlando makes a lot of sense.  Melo, Billups, Nene, and JR shouldn't see the floor in Orlando a couple days from now in order to have a good chance against Dallas in Dallas. 

With the standings the way they are and Denver in a tie with Dallas and Utah, throwing this game makes a ton of sense.  We all know that Utah will have a few more chokes before the season is over and if they don't then let them have the 2 seed.  The Nugs will walk over Utah in 5 no matter who has home court.  Dallas on the other hand has improved quite a bit this year and they have depth for miles to help them in the playoffs.  If I have ever seen a fight where I think a fighter should take a dive, it is the upcoming game in Orlando. 

If the Nugs do indeed give the game in Orlando to Orlando then they will probably be one game behind Dallas heading into Dallas the next day.  But as we all know with back to backs, the team traveling on a second of a back to back doesn't really have much of a chance.  I really hope the Nuggets choose to change the course of the season and forget about the Magic but put a beating on the Mavs.
