Heavyweights of the Western Conference take each other on as Denver Nuggets hosts Houston Rockets in the regular season of the NBA on Friday. The Nuggets are doing a spectacular job this season as they are in the 2nd spot in the league table. This would see them get a favourable matchup in the playoffs and an easier road for the conference finals. The fact that a franchise of their stature is able to contest themselves at this level, has to be applauded. Coach Michael Malone has to be given credit for this success and it will be interesting to see if they are able to acquire other stars in the roster.
Meanwhile, Houston Rockets are in the fifth spot in the table and it is clear that James Harden has been the star player of the entire league so far. He has led the franchise on his shoulders to make sure that the team is able to compete. The Rockets are still a bit shallow in their roster and need to preserve some of their star players. However, if James Harden is rested, it might see the team lose their momentum and fall down places in the Western Conference League Table.
