3rd Quarter Report The Nuggets fell flat on their face against the Thunder on Friday, but memory of that harsh defeat doesn’t seem to have tripped them up today. The Nuggets are fully in control with a 89-66 lead over the Hornets.

If the Nuggets keep playing like this, they’ll bump their record up to 24-11 in no time. On the other hand, the Hornets will have to make due with a 7-24 record unless they turn things around (and fast).

The Denver Nuggets and the Charlotte Hornets will face off at 9:00 p.m. ET on January 1st at Ball Arena without much rest after finishing up games yesterday. Given that the pair suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this match.

The Nuggets unfortunately witnessed the end of their six-game winning streak on Friday. They found themselves the reluctant recipients of a 119-93 punch to the gut against Oklahoma City. Having soared to a lofty 142 points in the game before, the Nuggets’ point total in this one was quite the letdown.

Meanwhile, the Hornets’ recent rough patch got a bit rougher on Friday after their tenth straight loss. They received a tough blow as they fell 133-119 to Phoenix. The final score was a far cry from the score of their previous head-to-head, which saw the teams combine for 196 points.

The Hornets’ loss came about despite a quality game from Terry Rozier, who went 8 for 12 from beyond the arc en route to 42 points and 8 assists. Those 42 points set a new season-high mark for him.

Denver’s defeat ended a three-game streak of wins at home and dropped them to 23-11. As for Charlotte, they have not been sharp recently, as they’ve lost 12 of their last 13 games, which put a noticeable dent in their 7-23 record this season.

This contest is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: The Nuggets haven’t given up the ball easily this season, having only averaged 11.5 turnovers per game (they’re ranked third in turnovers per game overall). However, it’s not like the Hornets struggle in that department as they’ve been averaging only 13.3 turnovers per game. Given these competing strengths, it’ll be interesting to see how their clash plays out.

The Nuggets beat the Hornets 102-95 when the teams last played last Saturday. Will the Nuggets repeat their success, or do the Hornets have a better game plan this time around? We’ll find out soon enough.
