KEY GAME INFORMATION
DENVER: GUARDS: TY LAWSON has emerged as the closest thing to a No. 1 option on this team, and despite his size, he's proven capable of playing full-time minutes. He'll continue to post big numbers in an up-tempo system that suits him perfectly . . . ANDRE MILLER will both back up Lawson and share the court with him at times (though Andre Iguodala figures to play a lot of two this season). The steady veteran is one of the league's most underrated sixth men . . . It's a bit surprising that EVAN FOURNIER is making the jump to the NBA this year. His size and skill combo will be nice on the wing one day, but he's unlikely to contribute this year . . . JULYAN STONE will be out until January after offseason hip surgery, but he should be Lawson's main backup upon his return. FORWARDS: DANILO GALLINARI is their most complete offensive player. If healthy, he's capable of being a 20-PPG scorer . . . ANDRE IGUODALA should enjoy the much faster pace Denver plays at. He'll see full-time minutes between both wing spots . . . KENNETH FARIED isn't a skilled big, but he's a high-energy guy who can get his own points off offensive rebounds . . . WILSON CHANDLER could end up leading their second unit in minutes and points . . . COREY BREWER is a front office favorite. He'll stay in the rotation as a defensive presence/glue guy . . . JORDAN HAMILTON could break into the rotation. He's one-dimensional, but has the offensive skills . . . Denver will try to solve the ANTHONY RANDOLPH riddle. Don't expect it to happen this year. CENTERS: Denver is all-in on internet punchline JaVALE McGEE. They'll give the athletic 7-footer every chance to become the star they think he can be. Whether the flaky McGee can capitalize is questionable . . . TIMOFEY MOZGOV is one of the NBA's best screeners, but his touches will be limited . . . KOSTA KOUFOS has quietly developed into a usable rotation player, but he might be squeezed out of minutes.
CHARLOTTE: GUARDS: RAMON SESSIONS will have to adjust to a major downgrade in teammates, but he has the kind of versatile offensive skill set to be the focal point of this offense . . . The athletic GERALD HENDERSON has made strides the past two seasons. Realistically, his offensive skills are those of a No. 4 or 5 option . . . Coach Mike Dunlap is high on KEMBA WALKER, who was sometimes overwhelmed as a rookie. With a few new sets built in for him, he could thrive as a sixth man getting starter's minutes . . . BEN GORDON won't overtake Henderson, but should see big minutes as the Cats' only shooter . . . REGGIE WILLIAMS is a D-League talent . . . MATT CARROLL, in the final year of his $27 million deal, symbolizes everything that's gone wrong under Michael Jordan. FORWARDS: Drafting MICHAEL KIDD-GILCHRIST was as much about changing the losing culture as it was adding a piece they needed. MKG's statistical output is a question mark, but he'll see big minutes as a defensive stopper and intangibles guy . . . This team is seriously lacking in the post, where they may have no choice but to play TYRUS THOMAS for significant minutes. The talented but uber-underachieving big man claims to have added 20 pounds of muscle in the offseason. If nothing else, they might showcase him in a desperate attempt to get some trade value . . . Rookie JEFFERY TAYLOR figures to make the team and has the versatility and athleticism to be a respectable second-unit guy. CENTERS: Charlotte sees BISMACK BIYOMBO as a franchise cornerstone. He can certainly rebound and block shots, but his offense is atrocious . . . BRENDAN HAYWOOD brings a veteran presence. At his age he can't go more than 15 or so minutes per night . . . BYRON MULLENS never saw a shot he didn't like. He'll get one more chance to prove he's an NBA rotation player, able to play the four or five . . . DeSAGANA DIOP is doing those things that DeSagana Diop does.

*Nuggets-Bobcats Preview* =========================

By JEFF BARTL STATS Writer

Denver (34-21) at Charlotte (13-41), 7:00 p.m. EDT

In a short period, the Denver Nuggets have gone from one of the league's hottest teams to suffering through their toughest stretch of the season.

The dismal play of the Charlotte Bobcats in their last game proves it could always be worse, though.

Denver looks to avoid a fifth consecutive road loss by defeating lowly Charlotte for the fourth straight time Saturday night.

The Nuggets surged to a nine-game winning streak from Jan. 20-Feb. 9, looking dominant at times while winning by an average of 12.5 points per contest. That momentum quickly faded, though, as they lost their last three games prior to the All-Star break - all on the road.

Following a 97-90 home win over Boston on Tuesday, Denver (34-22) fell 119-113 visiting a Washington team that entered with only 15 victories. It now will be looking to avoid its first five-game road skid since dropping six in a row from Dec. 8-28, 2009.

Ty Lawson, averaging 27.4 points over his last five, finished with 27 points and 12 assists while Wilson Chandler added 22 points off the bench for Denver, which has allowed an average of 116.3 points during the current road losing streak. It was giving up 102.1 points per game away from home prior to this stretch.

"I'm a little concerned that we don't respect the opponent on the road enough to think defense first and then worry about offense - because offense usually happens when we play defense," coach George Karl said.

The Nuggets haven't met much resistance, though, when facing the Bobcats recently, winning the last three meetings by an average of 21.0 points. Denver won the last matchup 110-88 on Dec. 22 despite Lawson going scoreless.

That contest accounted for one of 10 defeats by at least 20 points for league-worst Charlotte (13-42), which is coming off a 105-75 loss to Chicago on Friday.

The Bobcats, who have dropped 19 of their last 21 home games, shot 33.3 percent from the field, dropping them to an NBA-worst 42.0 percent on the season.

Kemba Walker scored 27 points, including half of the team's 38 in the second half. He's averaging 25.0 over his last three.

"We started off too late," Walker said. "We have to kick it off from the jump. I blame myself. I had to set the tempo."

Walker may have a tough time keeping his hot stretch rolling, though, as he has scored only 19 points combined while shooting 32.0 percent in two career games versus Denver.

Byron Mullens entered Friday's contest averaging 19.8 points and 9.8 rebounds over his last four, but he hit only 1 of 12 from the field and finished with two points and four boards.

It seems unlikely the Bobcats can expect much of a contribution from Ben Gordon going forward after he didn't play for the first time since Dec. 26 despite being active.

Gordon had expressed his desire to be traded by Thursday's deadline, and it appears his role will continue to diminish through the second half of the season despite being Charlotte's highest-paid player.

"You're trying to develop a core, so you want to get those young guys minutes," coach Mike Dunlap said.

These teams have split eight all-time meetings in Charlotte.
