KEY GAME INFORMATION
DENVER: GUARDS: TY LAWSON is turning into something of a one-man army as the roster around him crumbles. As good as he is as a quick playmaker who can knock down an open three, his supporting cast is lacking . . . EVAN FOURNIER is better than RANDY FOYE now, and he's certainly a bigger part of Denver's future. Fournier proved surprisingly ready for the NBA last season. While Foye brings more scoring power to a team that suddenly lacks offense, he's both inefficient and one-dimensional . . . NATE ROBINSON will provide instant offense and lead the second unit . . . ANDRE MILLER will lose a few minutes this year, but the 37-year-old still has good basketball left. FORWARDS: Coming off a late-season ACL tear, DANILO GALLINARI will be lucky to make it back by December . . . KENNETH FARIED will likely never develop into anything more than an energy guy and high-volume rebounder, but he's good at what he does . . . WILSON CHANDLER can shoot and defend multiple positions. With Gallinari a question mark, he could be in for a much bigger role this year . . . DARRELL ARTHUR is an interesting second-unit player. He's an athlete who was starting to show some skill in Memphis before getting hurt . . . Gunning wingman JORDAN HAMILTON may get a longer look in the second half of the season . . . QUINCY MILLER is likely ticketed for more D-League action . . . ANTHONY RANDOLPH is a lost cause. CENTERS: The time has arrived for JAVALE MCGEE. The front office wants him on the floor full-time. For all the knucklehead plays, he's still an incredible athlete in a massive 7-foot frame . . . Talk of J.J. HICKSON potentially starting is absurd. A brutal defender unable to play within the flow of an offense, he's a second-unit talent . . . TIMOFEY MOZGOV is Plan B behind McGee. The 7-footer can defend and set screens.
TORONTO: GUARDS: KYLE LOWRY was banged up last season, but he enters this year healthy and has the potential to be one of the league's best two-way point guards . . . DEMAR DEROZAN does a nice job attacking, but he's a flawed player unless he develops a jump shot . . . The Raptors want TERRENCE ROSS to attack the basket more often. But whether he develops a three-point shot could determine where he fits into this rotation . . . After a disastrous season in Indiana, D.J. AUGUSTIN will have to earn his rotation spot. Toronto could use his shooting, though . . . DWIGHT BUYCKS comes back from Europe to back up Lowry . . . Versatile JULYAN STONE is an interesting bit piece, as he reunites with GM Masai Ujiri, who brought him to Denver. FORWARDS: Despite all that talent, RUDY GAY's poor shot selection and disinterested defense will have him on the trading block . . . AMIR JOHNSON will get another chance at full-time minutes. Despite some inconsistency, he still has the upside to be a good rebounder and shot-blocker . . . TYLER HANSBROUGH brings toughness and a decent mid-range jumper. He's a second-unit talent, but could challenge Johnson for minutes . . . LANDRY FIELDS is a well-compensated reserve . . . STEVE NOVAK gives them a legitimate shooter among the second unit . . . Toronto will try to shake some of that upside out of AUSTIN DAYE . . . QUINCY ACY will move to the three, likely making this a redshirt year. CENTERS: JONAS VALANCIUNAS is set to become Toronto's new centerpiece. Talented enough for them to run the offense through him, he's rapidly improving on both ends of the court . . . AARON GRAY will stick around as a decent back-up, a 7-footer who can get in the way defensively.

*Nuggets-Raptors Preview* =========================

By JEFF BARTL STATS Writer

Denver (9-6) at Toronto (6-9), 1:00 p.m. EDT

The Denver Nuggets were never deterred by a rough start, and they're hoping their current winning streak is just a sign of how good they can be going forward.

Denver seeks a sixth straight victory as it begins a six-game road trip against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.

The Nuggets (9-6) dropped their first three games this season under rookie coach Brian Shaw, but they've been hot of late and extended their win streak with a 97-95 victory over New York on Friday.

Ty Lawson, who leads the team with 20.9 points per game, scored 22 and added eight assists against the Knicks.

"We've got five wins in a row. We're trying to keep it going," Lawson told the team's official website. "If we stay focused and stay with the game plan, we can make this win streak a lot longer ... You can't be like, 'I want to win four out of six.' That doesn't make sense. We want all six."

Nate Robinson scored 16 points off the bench and is averaging 13.2 over his last six.

"We're hungry," Robinson said. "Every team looks like Thanksgiving dinner. We're trying to get it."

Denver dropped four of its first five road games before winning its previous two. Each team it will face on the trip has a record below .500, though Shaw said his club won't take any of them lightly.

The trip to Toronto is followed by visits to Brooklyn, Cleveland, Boston, Philadelphia and Washington.

"What I want them to feel is what it feels like to string some games together, get some momentum," Shaw said. "We want it to continue regardless of whether we're on the road or not. All these teams that we play, we have to respect them. We've had some good fortune, so we can't afford to overlook anyone."

The Raptors, whose general manager is former Denver GM Masai Ujiri, have won the last two home meetings with the Nuggets. Rudy Gay's jumper with five seconds remaining gave Toronto a 109-108 win in the most recent matchup Feb. 12. The Raptors overcame 29 points from Lawson in the victory.

DeMar DeRozan scored 25 points and Gay had 21 and 11 rebounds Friday, but Toronto (6-9) fell 90-83 to Miami for its second straight defeat. The Raptors, who have lost four of five at home, trailed by as many as 20 but made a late run to close the gap to four.

"We're a hell of a team when we get down 20, but we can't let it get there," DeRozan said.

Coach Dwane Casey agreed after Toronto shot only 38.4 percent and committed a season-worst 21 turnovers.

"The way we played the second half, and I told the team in there, shows we can play with anybody," Casey said. "But there's two halves. We can't e half and expect to beat anybody. Right now, we're a one-half team. We've got to get two solid halves put together."

Tyler Hansbrough needed two stitches to close a cut over his left eye in the first half, but was able to return and should be good to play Sunday.

Denver forward Kenneth Faried left in the third quarter Friday because of a right quad contusion. He's day to day.
