Thank you sir, may I have another.

The Indiana Pacers take on another Western Conference title contender tonight when they take on the Denver Nuggets.

In the third game of the season, the Nuggets ran out to a big early lead and cruised home for a 111-93 win at the Fieldhouse. While that seems like two years ago from a Pacers' perspective, the Nuggets are a different team as well. After weathering various stretches with key injuries, Denver has emerged heading into the home stretch of the season as a legit contender in the West.

The Nuggets remain a team playing through adversity though as head coach George Karl has been courageously coaching as much as he can while enduring treatment for throat cancer. Speaking of which, don't forget Hoops for St. Jude Week.
