Here’s a hint for the No. 4 seed: This team has the NBA’s best record in 2013.
With their schedule finally balanced, the Denver Nuggets are serious contenders for home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.
Saddled with arguably the league’s most turbulent schedule this season, Denver played 17 of its first 23 games on the road.
After surviving that opening gauntlet with a respectable 11-12 record, and having now played 25 games both home and on the road, the Nuggets stood 32-18 and rode an eight-game winning streak into Saturday night’s game at Cleveland.
In a nationally televised 128-96 rout against the Chicago Bulls (29-20 at the time) on Thursday night, Denver shot 58.1 percent from the field, collected 15 layups and 14 dunks, and outran this running of the Bulls 23-6 in fast-break points.
