Denver Nuggets 1.56
New Orleans Hornets 2.50
Nuggets are a special today
Why? The Hornets (11-17) lost 100-85 at Portland on Wednesday in their first game without star point guard Chris Paul, who is out indefinitely after spraining his right ankle in Tuesday's loss to Seattle.
New Orleans will again be without starters Peja Stojakovic (back) and David West (elbow) and top reserve Bobby Jackson (cracked rib).
Denver Nuggets - Standings: Second, Northwest
I am sure Nuggets will play to win. They do want to get to 1st place. don't they???
