The Denver Nuggets (24-28) roll into trade deadline day as losers of five-straight as they face a team that currently owns the worst record in the NBA. If you remember correctly, the Bucks were the last team that the Nuggets beat back on Feb. 5th at the Pepsi Center. The Nuggets are coming off of a competitive game however where they lost to one of surprising teams of the NBA in the Phoenix Suns — via overtime.

Adding on to the loss to the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday, here is what Evan Fournier had to say.
“I think we did a pretty good job of staying together and playing hard — playing as a team and we have to keep going that way,” said second-year guard Evan Fournier, who set career highs with 25 points and eight rebounds.
Ty Lawson will not play against the Bucks as the guard continues to heal a fractured rib. Randy Foye will assume the point guard duties as Evan Fournier continues to come off the bench. The Milwaukee Bucks started their second-half of the season off with a win over the Orlando Magic Tuesday night.
Denver might not have to deal with big man Larry Sanders who has missed the last three-games with a fractured orbital bone. Sanders would record season highs against Denver in their last meeting, scoring 25 points to go along with 15 rebounds. Shooting guard O.J. Mayo is questionable for the game after missing the last 10 game with an illness.
