This one is going to be short and sweet. The next five games should prove to be very tough. Outside of tomorrow's game against the Orlando Magic, which is on a back to back, of course, the Nuggets face some of the hottest playoff bound teams in the East on this road trip. For those who have been having any angst about Denver winning too many games and losing lottery position, this trip might just prove the panacea you were searching for. If you're instead wanting to see the team make a late season playoff push, these next five games should show if the team is really ready to make that step. Either way, this road trip should prove to be a lot of fun.
