KEY GAME INFORMATION
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.
NEW ORLEANS: LAST SEASON: 48-34, lost in Western Conference semifinals.
COACH: Alvin Gentry (fourth season, 16th NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Elfrid Payton (12.7 ppg, Orlando/Phoenix), G Jrue Holiday (19 ppg), F E'Twaun Moore (12.5 ppg), F Anthony Davis, (28.1 ppg), C Julius Randle (16.1 ppg, Lakers).
KEY LOSSES: C-F DeMarcus Cousins, G Rajon Rondo
KEY ADDITIONS: Randle, Payton
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Davis and Holiday played the best basketball of their careers last season and provide the Pelicans hope of returning to the playoffs. Davis has continued working on building his physique and strength with the expectation that he might have to play more at center now the Cousins is out of the picture. Davis also says his goal is to prove he is the most dominant player in the NBA. Holiday thrived last season when he was able to play more at shooting guard, allowing him to focus more on scoring and crunch-time defending than setting up the offense. The acquisition of Payton should allow Holiday to resume that role.
OUTLOOK: While it's hard to replace Cousins and Rondo, general manager Dell Demps is hoping Randle and Payton wind up being better fits because of their relative youth, defensive play and ability to thrive in an up-tempo offense. Gentry has said he wants the Pelicans to play even faster than their NBA-leading pace last season. It just might work. New Orleans' top three front court players 'Davis, Randle and Nikola Mirotic' all have shown they can be effective playing that way.
PREVIEW
Streaky Nuggets visit uneven Pelicans
 

The Denver Nuggets and the New Orleans Pelicans have been too of the streakiest teams in the NBA.

The Nuggets started the season 9-1, then lost four in a row before routing the Hawks on Thursday night in the Pepsi Center.

The Pelicans started by winning four in row, lost six in a row, won three in a row, then lost at Minnesota on Wednesday before beating New York 129-124 on Friday night.

Both teams will be looking to start another winning streak with a second consecutive victory when Denver visits New Orleans on Saturday night.

Nuggets coach Michael Malone told the Denver Post: "Our guys understand the sense of urgency" before his team hosted Atlanta.

After the 138-93 victory, point guard Jamal Murray told the Post, "That was a must-win in our eyes."

Murray is expected back in the starting lineup Saturday after being benched against the Hawks for what Malone told the Post was a "small violation of team rules."

Monte Morris made his first career start in Murray's place and didn't have a turnover in 29 minutes as he directed the Nuggets to a season-high point total. Seven players scored in double-figures and the team finished with 34 assists and shot 56 percent from the floor.

"I think that was the first time all season where I felt like we were the Nuggets of old, where we were flying around," Malone said.

But Malone was most pleased with Denver's improved defensive play, which had triggered the 9-1 start but lagged during the four-game losing streak.

Defensively, Denver held Atlanta?(3-12) to its second-lowest scoring game of the season on 34.8 shooting from the field, including 21.4 from 3-point range.

Denver is starting a three-game road trip that includes stops in Milwaukee on Monday and Minnesota on Wednesday. The Pelicans are playing the middle game of a three-game home-stand in four days host San Antonio on Monday.

New Orleans trailed by as many as 19 points and was down by 11 midway through the fourth quarter before coming back to defeat the Knicks.

Anthony Davis had 43 points and 17 rebounds, Jrue Holiday had 24 points and 10 assists, Julius Randle came off the bench to score 19, E'Twaun Moore scored 13 and Nikola Mirotic scored 12 for New Orleans, which trailed by 16 after the first quarter and scored 41 points in the fourth quarter.

"We were down by eleven at 6:40 and we just really buckled down and got stops," Randle said. "Then we let that energy bleed to the offensive end. (But) we've got to make teams more uncomfortable when they are on the offensive end on defense. It's just a little too free-flowing and we've got to come with better energy too."

Elfrid Payton started for the Pelicans after missing the last nine games because of a sprained right ankle but left the game for good in the first half after fracturing his left small finger. His status is undetermined.

The Pelicans have had balanced scoring thus far.

Davis led the team in scoring in consecutive games against Chicago and Phoenix last week, and that's the only time they have had the same leading scorer in consecutive games.

Moore had emerged as a top scorer this week, scoring 30 in a win at Toronto on Monday, then getting 31 in the loss at Minnesota two night later, before being more limited against New York

"At any given time, anyone can take over the game, and that lets us not rely on Anthony to score all the time," Holiday told the Pelicans' team website.
