The Denver Nuggets were in Phoenix last night, losing again to the Suns, this time by a score of 118-115. It was first leg of a three-game road trip in which the team hopes to win at least two games. The loss “stung,” writes The Denver Post, because the Nuggets are fighting for home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

The Nuggets go to New Orleans on Wednesday, where a loss would drop them to fifth in the Western Conference.
