The Game

This is a significant final game for the Denver Nuggets. At 53-28, they sit just a half-game ahead of the Houston Rockets for the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference.

If the Nuggets beat the Wolves, they’ll get the No. 2 seed. Simple. But with a loss, Houston would leapfrog the Nuggets.

That’s significant to avoid a second-round matchup against the Warriors.

The Wolves go into the game with a 36-45 record, 11th in the Western Conference.
