The Denver Nuggets will look to continue their fine recent surge when they host the Chicago Bulls at the Pepsi Center on Thursday in the finale of their six-game home stand.
Winners of seven in a row, the Nuggets have moved into fourth place in the Western Conference race a half game ahead of the Memphis Grizzlies. Tuesday they rallied from a 15-point half time deficit to defeat the Milwaukee Bucks 112-104 as Danilo Gallinari and Ty Lawson each scored 22-points for the hosts to offset a monster game from Milwaukee's Samuel Dalembert. The veteran from Seton Hall was virtually unstoppable connecting on 17-of-21 for 35 points in just 27 minutes of action. The Bulls on the other hand come into Thursday's game after losing in Indiana to the Pacers, as the league's top away record was no match for the Pacers current home form.
The Nuggets are 1.90 in the point spread (-5.5), with the Bulls (+5.5) 1.90.
Wednesday the San Antonio Spurs stretched their current unbeaten run to 11 games when they defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center. The Spurs, who move on to play the Pistons in Detroit on Friday, continue to be without the services of Manu Ginobili whose left hamstring remains a concern. San Antonio's sixth man took part in the morning shoot around prior to the game against the Timberwolves, but the Western Conference leaders are going to have to give the Argentinian plenty of rest over the next month or so otherwise Ginobili will be an injury risk heading towards the post-season.
