5 Reasons the Denver Nuggets Can Realistically Win the West

While the Miami Heat are pursuing the NBA winning streak record of 33 games, the Denver Nuggets have put together an impressive streak of their own.

After the Nuggets dismantled the Oklahoma City Thunder in the second half on OKC's home floor Tuesday night, Denver extended its winning streak to 13 games.

Furthermore, this run didn't come against the scrubs. Eight of Denver's 13 victories have come against playoff-eligible teams by an average of 10.6 points per game.

The Nuggets are quick and athletic, they attack inside and outside, and they are deep and balanced.

Plus, veteran head coach George Karl is starving for his first NBA title. This just might be Denver's year to win the West and get a crack at the hardware.
