Houston vs. Denver
The Denver Nuggets suffered a crushing blow when Danilo Gallinari went down with a torn ACL. The Nuggets were having one of the best seasons in the NBA before the injury and it's hard to tell how the team will respond going down the stretch. The Rockets on the other hand are playing inspired ball behind the play of James Harden winning 7 of their last 10 games and trail Golden St. by 1 game for the 6th spot in the conference. Although Houston played last night (you know how I feel about back to back games) I still think they can squeak one out tonight as the Nuggets attempt to re-invent themselves in the absence of Gallinari.
