Great win for the Nuggets last night. I am concerned that they are only the 5th seed now though. They have been horrible on the road and if they stay the 5th seed then they will have to open at Memphis. The Nuggets seem to have a good schedule the rest of the way and I think they can catch the Griz and get the 4th seed.
I did not think at the begining of the year they would get past the 6th seed so this is great progress.
Can anyone tell me what the Nuggets have for draft picks in the next two years? I know they got some selections in the Carmelo trade. Thanks. I love NBA PLAYOFF BASKETBALL!!!!!
