The Denver Nuggets and Memphis Grizzlies have identical 11-1 records since the NBA All-Star break.

The secrets to their success couldn’t be more incongruous.

With their rocket-fueled fast-break offense, the Nuggets have won 10 straight games by racing past short-breathed opponents.

With their lockdown defense, the Grizzlies have won their past six games by stifling the opposition into submission.

Think Rembrandt vs. Andy Warhol. Beethoven vs. Black Sabbath.
