Toronto Raptors vs Denver Nuggets

January 29, 2014

Sportsnet One - 9:00 PM EST

I knew what to make of the Orlando Magic. I knew that was a club that was playing out the season, waiting for lottery gold, and hoping to cash in at season's end.

But the Denver Nuggets?

No idea. Their offseason moves made me feel that they were taking at least a step backward, and the season sure started out in that fashion. But then the Nuggs went on a nice little run and found themselves securing back in the playoff mix in the West.

Things have fallen off a bit since then, but you can bet this will be one fo the final clubs fighting it out for the eighth seed in the West come season's end.

Always a dangerous foe, especially at home, the Dinos need to bring energy right from the jump if they want to get this W.

GO RAPS!
