Denver has gone 14-3 overall in the regular season against Indiana since 2004-05 . . . The Nuggets have won seven of the last eight meetings with the Pacers in Denver . . . The Nuggets swept the season series with the Pacers in 2011-12 and have done so in five of the last eight years . . . The Pacers had one of the all-time great quarters the last time Denver played in Indiana on 11/9/10: They scored 54 points in the third quarter, going 20-21 (.952 FG) from the field, 8-9 (.889 3FG) from 3 and connecting on each of their first 20 shots in the quarter (only miss was a 3-point attempt that rimmed out at the buzzer) . . . Indiana is one of two current NBA franchises to have never had a player score 40+ points against Denver (New Orleans the other) . . . The Pacers and Nuggets are two of four original ABA franchises still in existence today (New Jersey and San Antonio the others).
