The Denver Nuggets have lost four of their last five games beating only the Atlanta Hawks at home while losing to the Brooklyn Nets, the Milwaukee Bucks and the Houston Rockets during their four-game home stretch.

On Saturday the Nuggets lost to the New Orleans Pelicans dropping them to sixth in the Western Conference, one game behind the Conference-leading Trail Blazers, which separates six teams by a single game with the Nuggets hanging on the fringes.

The Nuggets are on the road this week in Milwaukee, and Minnesota to face the Bucks and Timberwolves before returning to Pepsi Center to host the Orlando Magic Friday night.

Over the next ten games the Nuggets have two home games one of which will be against the L.A. Lakers next Tuesday night.

In other sports the Denver Broncos have won their first game since beating the Arizona Cardinals back on October 18th. Denver traveled to Carson California on Sunday take on division rivals the L.A. Chargers.

L.A. struck firsts with two field goals and a six point lead before Denver’s offense found its rhythm and the lead when rookie running back Philip Lindsey trotted straight up L.A.’s defense and into the end-zone on a 41 yard touchdown.

The Chargers scored once more before the half giving them a 7-13 lead over the Broncos heading into the third. L.A. would add six more with a six-yard pass to tight-end Antonio Gates.

The Broncos went three and out on their next drive kicking the ball to L.A. with just under 8:40 to play in the third. The Chargers moved the ball well from their own 22 to Denver’s 35 before Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers short pass intended for T. Benjamin was intercepted by Von Miller returning the ball to L.A. 42 yard-line.

The Broncos capitalized three plays later with a three-yard carry up the middle bringing Denver to within five (14-19).

Denver’s defense held the Chargers to only 9 yards on their ensuing drive and Denver’s offense responded on seven plays for 73 yards and the lead 20-19. L.A. took the lead back with a field goal and 6:51 left for Denver’s offense to respond.

Both offenses failed to move the ball and were both forced to punt leaving the Broncos with 1:51 to respond. Denver quarterback Case Keenum drove Denver’s offense down the field 7 plays and 76 yards to set up Denver kicker Brandon McManus up for the game winning 34-yard field goal. Denver beat L.A. 23-22.
