Denver hosts Golden State on Sunday evening as both teams try to keep pace with the elite teams in the Western Conference.
After a slow start to the season buried the Nuggets (22-16) they appear to be gaining some traction. Denver rallied in the second half on Friday to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers for their fourth consecutive win and seventh win in the past seven games.
The recent winning streak pushed the Nuggets past the Houston Rockets into sixth place in the West with Golden State (23-12) now directly in Denver's sights in fifth place. Danilo Gallinari has provided a consistent scoring punch for Denver of late averaging 21 points in the last four wins.
Here is the entire NBA schedule for Sunday (all times Eastern):
Golden State Warriors at Denver Nuggets, 8 p.m.
Oklahoma City Thunder at Portland Trail Blazers, 9 p.m.
Cleveland Cavaliers at Los Angeles Lakers, 9:30 p.m.
