Denver Nuggets


DENVER — They never make it easy for themselves, through their own actions or unfortunate circumstances, but the Bulls continue to be utterly confounding.


It's just one of 82 regular season home games. Win by 20 or lose by 50, they'll still be at least seven games over .500 and in the top four in the Eastern Conference.


The Warriors never really were in serious doubt with Stephen Curry out of the lineup.


Blake Griffin's quad injury came at a difficult time for the Clippers, who had lost three of four and had just started a five-game road trip.


Exactly two weeks ago the Atlanta Hawks sat at 14-12, having just lost their third straight game by 10+ points.
