The Nuggets have played quite well against the Kings this season. In Denver's three wins they have outscored the Kings: in Sacramento on Dec. 16th 122-97, in Denver on Jan. 26th 121-93, and in Sacramento on March 5th 120-113. That comes out to 363-303 in Denver's favor.

The last win against the Kings was the 6th in the current 14-game win streak. In that game, DeMarcus Cousins wasn't the happiest of players. Cousins shot just 1-12 on the night and scored just 8 points (6-10 from the foul line). He was frustrated by both Kosta Koufos and JaVale McGee.

Ty Lawson participated in today's shoot-around and could play tonight against the Kings.

If you're able to get out of your house (snow), get down to the Pepsi Center and see if the Nuggets can tie up their all-time 15-game win streak.
