The Denver Nuggets hit the road for two games this week starting with Wednesday night’s matchup with the Bulls in Chicago.

Denver comes in with a 5-1 record, good for second in the West, Chicago is 2-5, ninth in the East.  The Nuggets will be looking to win on the road for the second time this season.  The game is important from that aspect as the Nuggets are going to have to make up ground in the West with road wins this season.

The Nuggets are led by the trio of Nikola Jokic (21.5/10.3/6.8), Jamal Murray (16.7/4.3/2.8) and Gary Harris (20/3.8/3.8).

Chicago looks to Zach LaVine (28.1/5/3.1) and Jabari Parker (15.9/6/2.4) for the bulk of their scoring.

Last year, the Nuggets were outstanding at home (31-10) but dismal on the road (15-26).  While they may match last year’s home prowess, they realistically need to be a .512 or better team on the road.  That’s 21-20 for those curious at how we came to an odd number like .512.

It’s a tall order but we’d feel comfortable with where 52 wins lands the Nuggets in playoff seeding, that total would have been third in the Western Conference a season ago.

The path to 21 took a blow last week in Los Angeles with a loss to the Lakers but begins anew in Chicago.
