DENVER NUGGETS (27-36) AT ORLANDO MAGIC (19-46), 7 P.M.
(SportsNetwork.com) - The Denver Nuggets are winless on their current road trip, but will try to rectify that, starting Wednesday night against the Orlando Magic.
After a two-game winning streak, which came on the heels of a six-game slide, the Nuggets dropped the first two of this five-game sojourn through the southern part of the U.S.
Denver fell Sunday in New Orleans, losing in overtime by a 111-107 tally. One night later, the Charlotte Bobcats prevailed, 105-98, to give the Nuggets a 3-13 record in their last 16.
Ty Lawson poured in 24 points and dished out six assists and Aaron Brooks finished with 16 points off the bench for the Nuggets. Kenneth Faried (15) and J.J. Hickson (11) also finished with double-figure point totals.
"We didn't seem to get engaged in the game until the end when we were trying to scramble and come back. The game was in the balance all night long and we couldn't seem to get over the hump. They made the plays that they need to make down the stretch and we didn't," said Nuggets coach Brian Shaw.
