Colorado's most successful sports team for the last decade:

Denver Nuggets.

Playoffs every year since 2003/2004, and we're going again this year.

As much as I loved the Billups/Melo team that nearly took LA down in '09, this year's team is better.

FINALS.

However, the really weird thing is if the season ended today, the Clips and Denver would play - but the Nuggets would get homecourt due to a better record.

So to sum up - the seed number doesn't matter - only the record in determining home court.

Also, I've seen quite a bit of national coverage of the Nuggets today - ESPN had them as their Sportscenter highlight of the night - Tim Legler was waxing lyrical about how the Nugs are now one of his four teams that could win the title. It is probably better the Nuggets lay low - I have a feeling this pursuit of the streak is going to tax Miami - they'll probably be in playoff mode for as long as the streak continues - playing James, Wade, and Bosh big minutes in an effort o make history. I don't blame them - I would do the same.
No, its a conspiracy!

Yeah, the only story in the NBA right now is that Miami streak and they have to go for greatness. That's what great teams do. As far as them taxing themselves during the streak, I dunno. Plus, its completely possibly Miami rolls through the first couple of rounds of the playoffs and earns plenty of rest time while other series go longer.

Regardless, while anything can happen, Miami is on another level right now, and there's not a player close to LeBron James in the NBA. Basketball is probably the only sport where one player can dominate a game based on their sheer will. I suppose there's more margin for error, less variable, and the best player can control the majority of the game (which is untrue in basically every other sport). So unless LeBron breaks his leg, I can't see him faltering.

Miami is winning the NBA championship baring injuries. Nuggs after this recent streak have shown that they can contend in the west though.

Barring injury or excessive fatigue... Miami is competing at a pretty intensive level right now. I'm not sure they can keep this up indefinitely. A team like Indiana most definitely could sneak up on them.

So the Sixers aren't scared of the Nuggets. And at home. How does this team lose to the Wizards and the Sixers?

Occasionally you need some luck. They got it. Living right. Amazing how slow they are without Ty.

Was at the game. Seriously one of their poorest performances of the season but they had a little magic left in the tank at the end. Pepsi Center was rocking and fans were screaming all the way outside on their way out. Big win, lucky, but big!

I don't care what sport it is, when you go on a long winning streak you have get lucky sometimes. Nugs were lucky last night!!! Corey Brewer had an amazing three pointer to draw within two. Then the foul on the three with 2 seconds left and hitting all three FTs. Exactly what makes the Nuggets a team to be feared, any one of about 7 players could go for 25-30 on any given night. If you are a fan of the team aspect, you should be a fan of the Nuggets!

Good teams find ways to win games when they don't play their best.

Wizards also beat OKC, Miami, Clips, Knicks, and the Nets.

Totally different team w/o Ty - and not in a good way. Painful game to watch until the last two minutes.

OK, Memphis lost, so the Nuggets are obviously ahead of them now, but nothing has changed between the Nuggets and the Clippers since yesterday, and we have vaulted both of them, into 3rd place as we should have been a few days ago.

Actually, Blinky the frog, or something like that, explained it well on the previous page. I get why the Clips will be called the 4th seed over Denver or Memphis, whoever finishes 5th, even if they have the better record. Not that it makes any difference for home court in the playoffs, though. Best record hosts.

Man we need Ty back tomorrow. It really would suck to lose to Sacramento at home. Need to blow them out.

Being in 3rd place is awesome.
