The Denver Nuggets are still riding high early in the season. After the Los Angeles Clipper latest defeat, the Mile High crew are now sitting in first place for the Western Conference. They are currently on a five game winning streak, without two of their starting lineup (Will Barton and Isaiah Thomas).

It seems everything is going right for the Nuggets. Veteran forward, Paul Milsap, was named the NBA Western Conference Player of the Week, the team already has a win over the Golden State Warriors and the Lakers and it seems the defensive minded team has finally found it's offense.

Considering how tight the the competition is in the Western Conference, the Nuggets number spot maybe short lived. Tonight (December 3rd, 2018), they face off against the number one team in the eastern conference, the Toronto Raptors.
