Denver Nuggets Team Report – January 26

=== Denver Nuggets Team Report – January 26 ===

(Sports Network) – The Denver Nuggets try to get back on the winning track
this evening when they welcome the red-hot Minnesota Timberwolves to the
Pepsi Center.

Denver enters tonight’s tilt riding a two-game losing streak after Sunday’s
106-88 setback at the hands of the smoking-hot Memphis Grizzlies at the
Pyramid.

The Nuggets were led by rookie Carmelo Anthony, who posted 25 points on 10-
of-17 shooting. Andre Miller added 19 points for Denver, which has dropped
two straight on the heels of a three-game win streak.

Earl Boykins added 12 for Denver, which was outscored 64-39 in the second
half.

The Nuggets have won four of their last five at home and are 17-7 in their
arena this season.

Minnesota defeated the Denver earlier in the year and has won six straight
in the series and nine of the last 11 matchups. The T-Wolves, who have won
17 of the last 23 overall meetings, have also won eight of their last 11 in
the Rockies.
