The Denver Nuggets are well on their way to the couch this post-season with losses to the New Orleans Pelicans, the Portland Trailblazers, and the Charlotte Hornets last week before chalking up a single win over the Miami Heat in a close game. Denver was in the driver seat for post-season contentions, and have now dropped out with three straight losses. The Trailblazers on the other hand are riding a six-game winning streak that has propelled them past the Nuggets and likely solidifying the number 8 seed in the West. 

The Denver Nuggets who were just enjoying a game and a half lead over the Trailblazers just a week and half ago are now down two games with just six games left in the regular season. Although the Nuggets are within striking distance of wrapping up the number 8 spot, their chances have greatly diminished and with only 6 games left Denver would have to win out with hopes that Portland loses at least three of their next six. Unfortunately, the Trailblazers are on a hot streak and the Nuggets aren’t. The Denver Nuggets remaining games are as follows: at Houston (Rockets) Wednesday, April 5, at 8 p.m.; at home vs. New Orleans (Pelicans) Friday, April 7, at 9 p.m.; at home vs. Oklahoma City (Thunder) Sunday, April 9, at 5 p.m.; at Dallas (Mavericks) Tuesday, April 11, at 8:30 p.m.; and at Oklahoma (Thunder) Wednesday, April 12 at 8 p.m. (All times are Mountain Standard Time).

Monday kicked off Opening Day across the Nation as the Colorado Rockies took on the Milwaukee Brewers and with the season kick-off, fans are excited to see another dominating start for the Rockies as they spoiled the Brewers efforts to come away with a win (7-5) at Milwaukee’s home opener. Colorado is known for coming out of the gate hot, dominating with offensive play. The Rockies led the league last year in runs with just under 850 total for the season. Many believe Colorado will continue the trend, however with spring training came injuries that could cause a slow start to the season. The Rockies will kick off their home opener against the L.A. Dodgers Friday, April 7, 4:10 p.m., at Coors Field. 

Monday was NCAA Men’s Basketball day to crown a new Champion, Gonzaga and the University of North Carolina (UNC) met for one of the better NCAA Championship games in awhile. UNC headed into the half down 3 but came out in the second half firing and outscoring Gonzaga 71 - 65. The game was close all the way until the end however, it was the turnover ratio that was the deciding factor as Gonzaga gave up the ball 14 times to UNC’s 4. UNC’s win comes after several years of investigation into academic fraud. Although players of the current championship team were merely children in 2011 when the scandal hit news outlets, the school still carries a negative reputation. Hopefully UNC’s championship win will help erase the negative tone associated with the schools name.
