A dozen games are all that stand between the Nuggets and a possible two seed or perhaps the dreaded eight seed. And that 12 game stretch starts with a flury tonight, Wednesday, and Friday with a trifecta of roadies that could determine the Powder Blue Patrol's playoff fate. All this talk of seeds make anyone want to get some sunflower seeds?
At Phoenix, at New Orleans, and at Dallas. All teams desperate in the NBA playoff hunt, In Phoenix's case on the outside of the playoff hunt.
While the Nugs have a five game winning tilt, no on is screaming from the roof of the Pepsi Center, as all five 'W's are versus non-playoff foes. However, the stretch did allow K-Mart and Anthony Carter get back into their form from earlier in the year. Even more important might be the strong emergence of Renaldo Balkman over the last two weeks. Throw in Chris Anderson's above average play, and the team looks OK on the front end of things.
Carter's health may be the key to the three game crucible facing the Nugs. Not only are they facing three daunting road games, but he and backcourt mate Chauncey Billups face Steve Nash, Chris Paul, and Jason Kidd. While Kidd and Nash aren't going to out-athlete either of the Nugs' guards, they still have the court sense to match up.
