Complete Guide to Denver Nuggets Postseason

After an outstanding finish to the regular season, the Denver Nuggets are gearing up for a highly anticipated 2013 NBA playoffs.

At one point, the Nuggets were considered another average team in the West. They had dropped four out of five games and were staring at a 34-22 record.

Then Denver flipped a switch and went on a 23-3 run to snatch the No. 3 seed.

Just two-and-a-half seasons removed from losing Carmelo Anthony, head coach George Karl compiled one of the most exciting teams in the league with firepower and unselfishness. As Ian Thomsen of Sports Illustrated points out, Karl is a legitimate candidate for NBA Coach of the Year.

The Nuggets battled several injuries down the stretch. They don't have a superstar. They were never the center of attention.

Yet Denver's chemistry couldn't be tampered with and the Nuggets are now one of the biggest threats in the West.

Denver will begin its postseason journey at the Pepsi Center on Saturday, April 20 for Game 1 against the Golden State Warriors.
