Denver Nuggets' Biggest Strengths and Weaknesses

It's time to analyze the greatest strengths and weaknesses for the hottest team in the West, the Denver Nuggets.

Denver recently ran off 15-straight victories and has a chance to climb higher than its current No. 3 seed before the playoffs begin. 

Then again, with Ty Lawson potentially out for a couple of weeks with his plantar fascia tear in his right heel (via SI.com), Denver could also fall to the fifth spot. 

The Nuggets are fun to watch. They fly down the court, jump out of the gym and score 105.6 points per game (third in NBA).

They also give up 101 points per game (22nd), don't defend the perimeter well and don't have a proven superstar. 

These are the biggest qualities and deficiencies of the Nuggets heading toward the playoffs.
