SPOT­LIGHT

The Denver Post - - OFF & RUNNING -

Nuggets:

The Nuggets are back home for a pair of games, against Min­nesota and Philadel­phia, be­fore head­ing to Golden State on Mon­day. Af­ter de­feat­ing the Clip­pers, 106-102, late Mon­day, they are look­ing to get back to win­ning at home. The Nuggets lost their last home game, 109-108, to At­lanta. Den­ver is 38-19 against the Tim­ber­wolves all-time at home. Danilo Gal­li­nari and Will Bar­ton are on hot streaks. In the past three games, Gal­li­nari is av­er­ag­ing 20.3 points and 9.0 re­bounds while shoot­ing 48.5 per­cent from the field and 47.1 per­cent from the 3-point line. Bar­ton is av­er­ag­ing 19.0 points, 5.7 re­bounds and 4.3 as­sists in that same span. He’s shoot­ing a siz­zling 55.3 per­cent from the field and 42.9 per­cent from the 3-point line in that span.

Slowly but surely, Min­nesota is dig­ging out from a hor­rid start. The Wolves have won four of their past seven games, in­clud­ing Mon­day against At­lanta. They have not yet won a North­west Divi­sion game (0-4). Min­nesota is healthy ex­cept for cen­ter Nikola Pekovic (an­kle), who is out for the sea­son.
