Nuggets PK at Heat (203)

So how does one handle a 44-point loss? In the case of Denver, it’s apparently amnesia. At least that how Chauncey Billups, Carmelo Anthony and Kenyon Martin felt when interviewed in the Denver Post. What the Nuggets do have is their best record in franchise history (34-17) through 51 games and a history of success against the Heat.

The Nuggets have a three-game winning streak at Miami and have not lost in South Florida since 2004.

The Heat have managed to go 27-23 overall despite no real inside presence. Of course having one of the premier players in Dwyane Wade makes a huge difference. Also the Heat have gotten solid play from top draft choice Michael Beasley. Miami is 5-2 at home in its last seven outings, but the two losses were to Boston and Dallas. The Heat lost at Denver by 11 in the previous meeting this season and this isn’t the best time to face a nemesis sure to be focused off an embarrassing loss. NUGGETS.
