Giants from either conference collide as Denver Nuggets host Indiana Pacers in the regular season of the NBA on Saturday.
Denver Nuggets are the second-placed side in the Western Conference, and this is coming from a side who didn’t even make the playoffs last time out. This sudden jump into elitism has been because Coach Michael Malone has made sure that players will be consistent, and aren’t dissuaded from the game plan. They are a terrific franchise, who is looking to get in the conference finals, and have to rely on their relative inexperienced roster when the post-season comes.
Meanwhile, Indiana Pacers are in the third spot in the Eastern Conference, and this has been a scintillating season so far to say the least. The team has done exceptionally well even though their star player in Victor Oladipo has been out injured for more than a month. Talks of being their head coach being given the status of Coach of the Year are getting more sonorous, and he deserves every single plaudit that comes his way. The only thing left for them to do is be as consistent as they can and try to maintain this record.
