Happy Thanksgiving! The Nuggets hope to keep us from having another serving of turkey as they face off with the New Orleans Hornets at the Pepsi Center tonight.

The real key to success tonight will be a return to the defensive mindset that they displayed for the first four weeks of the season. New Orleans is one of the best offensive teams in the league. They shoot a high percentage and have arguably the league’s best player in Chris Paul running the show.

There is good news for the Nuggets though as Chris Andersen is probable for tonight’s game against the New Orleans Hornets. Add in the fact that J.R. Smith did not play last night and they have two fresh players available to play in the second game of a back to back.

In preparation for tonight’s game head on over to At the Hive and check out my portion of the Q & A we did.
