DENVER NUGGETS (24-28) AT MILWAUKEE BUCKS (10-43), 8 P.M.
(SportsNetwork.com) - The All-Star break didn't seem to help the struggling Denver Nuggets in their quest to keep an impressive playoff streak intact.
The Nuggets lost their first game out of the break and look to find some solace on the road when they open a quick trip Thursday against arguably the worst team in the NBA, the Milwaukee Bucks.
Denver, which will also visit Chicago and is 10-16 away from home, dropped a 112-107 overtime decision to the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday. The Nuggets squandered a 99-94 lead in the final minute of regulation and Wilson Chandler's jumper at the buzzer was off the mark.
Phoenix scored 13 of the 21 points in the extra session. But Nuggets forward J.J. Hickson had a chance to tie the game in the waning seconds and missed on a 3-point attempt with 1.6 seconds to go.
