Thuggets Update: The Nuggets are reeling after 3 straight losses by an average of just over 19 points (including a 36 point pasting by Boston on Monday at home.)  The will be without Nene, who has an injury.  They were also without Nene in the game earlier this season in Atlanta against the Hawks, in which the Hawks cruised to an 18 point victory.  Because of these facts the Nugs will probably win tonight, and when a team is pissed off and actually intent on getting a W, the Hawks never win acting as those type of opponents.

Hawks Update:  J Sandpaper was not suspended but wont play as he is attending to a personal matter.  I would say that is good for us, but unfortunately Zaza isnt much, and Randolph Morris will probably get way too much PT.  After thinking about it, I like Denver -8, and the over.  But don’t be surprised if the Hawks has some Josh Smithless fight in them tonight.
