The Nuggets have won five straight regular season games against the Timberwolves and they need to push that total up to six.
With a win the Nuggets can create a three way tie at the top of the Northwest Division with the struggling Utah Jazz and the exceedingly slightly above average Portland Trailblazers at 6-4.
We will see if the Nuggets have any hangover from their successful road trip and win over the Celtics. It is yet another chance for this Nugget team to prove that they are different from last season. In the past the Nuggets would play down to their competition, especially after a big win.
