This is a revenge spot for the Nuggets tonight as they have lost both meetings with the Memphis Grizzlies this season. All games were played in Memphis and have been very close with the Grizzlies winning by a single digit last time out and in the first meeting the game went overtime with Memphis prevailing 100-97. The Grizzlies have turned the corner after a rocky beginning to the season. They have won 8 of their past 10 games and began to adjust without the injured Zach Randolph in their rotation. Randolph is dealing with an MCL tear in his knee and may return to the team next week. We have seen more offense from the Grizzlies as the team is putting up nearly 100 points and making 48% of their shots during the recent span of five games. Center Marc Gasol has finally started to round back into his form of a year ago. Over the past five games the Memphis big man is averaging nearly 20 points and 9 rebounds a game.

The Denver Nuggets have gone on a nice run since the All Star break with four wins in their six games. Even better has been the return of Nene and shooting star Danilo Gallinari. This is his third game back since missing extended time due to an ankle injury. His minutes have been slowly going up each game. He has a 16 point per game average on the year. Rudy Fernandez is near a return to the Nuggets lineup after missing 10 games with a back problem. Fernandez gives Denver good energy and scoring off their bench.
