The Denver Nuggets are back in action today following a tough loss to the Utah Jazz not even 24 hours ago. After falling 118-114 in Utah, the Nuggets will look to build some momentum in their final tune up before the playoffs begin next weekend. Denver has now lost three straight games and will look to avoid a four-game losing streak when they welcome the Kings to town today.

For the Nuggets sake, a victory could go a long way just to give them something to hang their hat on going into the playoffs. By no means have the Nuggets played their best basketball as of late, so hopefully they use today to try and clean everything up so they’re ready to rock come playoff time.
