Ever since the Denver Nuggets dawned the GO GREEN uniform they have been on a winning streak. Last night they knocked off the Clippers for their 51st victory with six games left to go. They are on course to secure the second playoff spot in the west which would give them a real good chance to go deep into the playoffs.

With this a realistic possibility they could meet up with the Lakers in the western conference semifinals. Don't look for the Nuggets to be an easy pushover this time around. These guys are on a mission and could very well end up in the finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers. This would be another match made in heaven for the NBA, Carmelo Anthony vs. LeBron James, Awesome!
