KEY GAME INFORMATION
ATLANTA: LAST SEASON: 24-58, missed playoffs.
COACH: Lloyd Pierce (first season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Trae Young (27.4 ppg, University of Oklahoma), G Kent Bazemore (12.9 ppg), C Alex Len (8.5 ppg, Phoenix), F Taurean Prince (14.1 ppg), F John Collins (10.5 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G Dennis Schroder
KEY ADDITIONS: Young, G Kevin Huerter, F Omari Spellman, G Vince Carter
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Young, the fifth overall draft pick, is an exciting point guard who's likely to make a lot of rookie mistakes. Collins is primed to boost his scoring after spending the offseason to improve his jump shot. Prince has emerged as a team leader. Rookies Huerter and Spellman are first-round picks.
OUTLOOK: This season marks the second under general manager Travis Schlenk and the first of a complete rebuild. He and Pierce will take a patient approach with a young team that might struggle to win 20 games. The Hawks hope they drafted a franchise cornerstone in Young, but they aren't pressing him. Young was in high school two years ago and struggled at times in the second half of his only season at Oklahoma. Collins and Prince should be better in their second and third seasons, and Pierce will find opportunities for Huerter and Spellman if they earn the minutes in practice.
DENVER: LAST SEASON: 46-36, missed playoffs.
COACH: Michael Malone (fourth season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Gary Harris (17.5 ppg) G Jamal Murray (16.7 ppg), F Will Barton (15.7 ppg), F Paul Millsap (14.6 ppg), C Nikola Jokic (18.5 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: F Wilson Chandler, F Kenneth Faried, F Richard Jefferson, F Darrell Arthur, G Devin Harris
KEY ADDITIONS: G Isaiah Thomas, F Michael Porter Jr.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: In the offseason, Jokic signed a max deal contract worth around $147 million for five seasons. He's one of the top big men in the game. The Serbian standout turned in 10 triple-doubles last season, including the fastest triple-double in NBA history. He needed just 14 minutes, 55 seconds to reach the accomplishment at Milwaukee on Feb. 15. Jokic is the centerpiece for an organization trying to get to the postseason for the first time since 2012-13.
OUTLOOK: The addition of Thomas gives the Nuggets even more veteran leadership. They're stacked, but so is the rest of the Western Division. Denver has improved each season under Malone, going from 33 wins his first year, to 40 in 2016-17 and 46 last season. The Nuggets lost out on the eighth and final playoff spot in '17-18 when they lost in overtime at Minnesota on the final game of the regular season.
PREVIEW
Nuggets look to heat up again against Hawks
 

Just 10 days ago the Denver Nuggets were getting early buzz for their best start in four decades.

The buzz has stopped, along with Denver's winning ways. Four straight losses -- three at home -- have the Nuggets reeling. Their solid defense has disappeared and late-game collapses have added up to a November losing streak.

The upside is Denver has a great chance to salvage the last game of the homestand against the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday night. The Hawks (3-11) have lost five in a row and sit just a half-game ahead of Cleveland in the Eastern Conference entering Wednesday's action.

Atlanta can be a remedy or put Denver (9-5) in a tailspin. It depends on how the Nuggets come out defensively.

"We are playing very slow, stagnant, predictable basketball and it doesn't help when you've got to take the ball out of the net every time," Nuggets coach Michael Malone told reporters after practice on Wednesday. "We have some guys that look like they are exhausted two minutes into a game. We have guys on their shorts dead tired."

The Hawks won't be a pushover opponent. Four of their five losses during the current streak are by single digits. They fell by one at the Los Angeles Lakers and by seven at Golden State on Tuesday night.

The loss to the Warriors came on a night when dynamic rookie point guard Trae Young struggled with his shot. Young was 2-of-12 shooting for just four points, but he has been Atlanta's best player in the first 14 games.

He leads the team in scoring (17.5 points per game) and assists (8.2 per game) to back up his confidence. Young told Sports Illustrated that he will be a better player than Luka Doncic, who the Hawks picked and then traded to Dallas for Young on draft night

"The thing with Luka, he's a great player," Young said. "I don't understand why it can't work out for both situations. I hear (Atlanta made a mistake) all the time. Luka's a great dude, and I think he's going to be a really good player.

"But at the same time, I'm going to be a better player. Just because of my ability to stretch the floor, get others involved, I think I'll be better."

Both are having great rookie campaigns, and Denver will get its first look at the 20-year-old Young. The Nuggets have a young, dynamic point guard of their own in Jamal Murray. He's 21 and leads the team in scoring at 17.8 points per game.

Murray had a 48-point game against Boston on Nov. 4 and has played solid all season. He also has a backup in Monte Morris who is emerging as Denver's best bench player. Morris led the Nuggets with 19 points in the 109-99 loss to Houston on Tuesday and played the entire fourth quarter.

After the game, he was a mature voice in the locker room.

"It's all about taking corrective criticism. If somebody gets on you, we just got to man up and take it because that's going to make us all better," Morris said after the loss. "Going forward, I feel like that's going to be the approach for us. Just people calling people out. If anything goes bad, you just got to take the criticism and we got to move forward and win basketball games."

Denver hopes that starts Thursday against Atlanta.
