2011 NBA Playoff Predictions: Why Denver Nuggets Could Come out of the West
The one team no one in the NBA wants to face in the 2011 NBA Playoffs?
The white-hot Denver Nuggets, 18-6 since shipping malcontent Carmelo Anthony off to the New York Knicks. The Nuggets have locked up the fifth seed in the Western Conference and could be facing a showdown with the two-time defending champion Los Angeles Lakers if the Mistake-Show continues its late-season free fall.
With the point guard tandem of Ty Lawson and Ray Felton revving up the Nuggets high-powered engine, the Nuggets have posted their two highest-scoring games of the season in their last two outings, posting 130+ point efforts vs. the Warriors and T-Wolves.
Bottom line is the Nuggets are feeling good about themselves and have been converted from a team that featured one player dominating the ball in the halfcourt set—that would be Melo—to a running attack featuring long-range shooters like J.R. Smith, Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler, the inside muscle of Nene and Kenyon Martin and the one-two PG punch of Lawson and Felton.
Good luck Western Conference foes, you're gonna need it.
