This evening at the Pepsi Center in Denver the Nuggets seek a third win in four games Wednesday night when it returns home to host the Oklahoma City Thunder.
After a 2-1 trip that included a win over LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, the hot seat for Shaw has slightly cooled. Make no mistake, though, the Nuggets are still very much a work in progress as they try to regroup and get back on track in the unforgiving Western Conference.
For the moment, the Nuggets’ critics aren’t quite as loud even with the team off to its worst start (3-7) since 2002-03, when they began 2-8 on their way to a 17-65 record. “We’re under fire in a lot of different ways, but no matter what, we have to stick together in this room. We have to have each other’s back,” Shaw said Monday night after a 106-97 win over the Cavs. “People are attacking us from everywhere. The only way we can shut everybody up is by our actions on the floor.”
Just a few days ago, it looked as though Shaw’s days in Denver just may be numbered. The team had dropped six straight, which included giving up 84 points in the first half at home to Portland.
Shaw’s team was faltering. His tactics were questioned. His motives second-guessed.
To revamp the roster and add more leadership, Denver traded for Arron Afflalo in the offseason. The team al 2014 -15 NBA SEASON[/capso agreed to a four-year, $50 million contract extension with Kenneth Faried, an explosive player known as the “Manimal” who’s long been a fan favorite. source: http://www.nba.com/

Later on at the Toyota Center in the city of Houston, Texas the Rockets get ready for one tough match versus the Lakers. On October 28th, Los Angeles (2-9) fell 108-90 at home to Houston (9-2), but the Lakers suffered an even greater blow than dropping their season opener. They lost top draft pick Julius Randle for the season to a broken leg, a severe blow to their rebuilding efforts.
Bryant may be more concerned with helping the Lakers build on Tuesday’s 114-109 win at Atlanta to open this three-game road trip. He hit 10 of 18 shots to finish with 28 points after scoring a season-high 44 in a 136-115 defeat to Golden State two days earlier.

Houston, meanwhile, is aiming to beat the Lakers for a fifth straight game for the first time since taking six straight from 1993-94 – its longest winning streak in the all-time series. Moving closer to that mark will require bouncing back from Monday’s 119-93 loss at Memphis, where the Rockets connected on just 8 of 34 3-pointers.
The odds on this game are:
L.A. Lakers +13 208.5 o -105
Houston Rockets -13 208.5 u -105
