Playing games on back-to-back days is never an easy thing, especially on the road.
Following their first win during the month of December, the Miami Heat will try to build on that in Denver on Wednesday.
Kenneth Faried scored 24 points, Darrell Arthur led a big effort from Denver’s bench with 18, and the Nuggets beat the suddenly reeling Miami Heat 111-107 on Friday night, handing the NBA champions their fifth loss in six games.
Whether the pain in Stephen Curry’s sprained left ankle will subside enough for him to be on the court when the Golden State Warriors host the Denver Nuggets is not something the point guard could say for sure.
It was another loss for the Miami heat as the Denver Nuggets pressed the pace and then turned it up a notch in the fourth quarter. The Nuggets sent the Heat to their third straight loss with a 117-104 victory on Friday night.
