The 2012-13 season was the last time the Denver Nuggets made it to the post-season and that season the Nuggets franchise best record of 57 and 25. That year guard, Andre Iguodala spent his only year in Denver before being traded to Golden State to play with the Warriors, a team he’s been a part of since that trade. The Warriors happened to be the same team that ended Denver’s early departure from the post-season that year.

Now the Nuggets are looking to make their first appearance since the 2012-13 season and if the playoffs were to start today, they’d be a shoe in, barely. Unfortunately the Nuggets still have 18 games to play, not including the game scheduled at the time of this writing to face the Dallas Mavericks in Dallas.

Denver has the Cleveland Cavaliers on the schedule this week as they try to keep their current position in the standings. The Nuggets will not only host the Cavs this week, but will also face the L.A. Lakers on Friday night and the Sacramento Kings on Sunday evening. The Nuggets are just two games behind the division-leading Portland Trailblazers and have a chance to use these last 18 games to move into the top spot.

In other sports, the Denver Broncos made it to the combine to watch the 2018 class of prospects and the quarterback heavy class this off-season. The Denver Broncos have not made any moves at quarterback. However, speculation and rumors have been buzzing around about the Broncos making moves to bring quarterback Kirk Cousins to Denver but do the Broncos have enough cap room to get the deal done?. Most believe that Denver will likely have to give up on some key players on defense in addition to quarterback Trevor Siemian to make the deal sweet enough for Cousins to bite. Critics think that Cousins will likely end up in either Minnesota or Denver but it’s still much too early to tell.

In the meantime the Broncos will continue to evaluate the class of quarterbacks heading into this year’s draft and fans will likely get a chance to see who will lead the Broncos into the 2018-19 season.

The Colorado Rockies are about a month away from Opening Day at Coors Field when they will host the Atlanta Braves. The Rockies have been in Arizona at their Spring training facility since late January. Since then the Rockies have played 12 spring training games, and have 19 more to go before April 6.
