Welp, so much for the Nuggets moving up. They went 1-3 last week, with the sole win being a one-point victory over the Pistons. As for the losses, they were double-digits all: by 17 to Dallas, by 19 to Utah, and by 17 to Minnesota. The fact that a) two of those losses were in their division, and b) they gave up at least 112 points in each game, doesn't bode well. And losing Danilo Gallinari (again) for up to a month with a fractured thumb isn't quite balanced by the re-acquisition of Wilson Chandler. —Russ Bengtson
