Nuggets, Rockets among 5 hottest teams since the All-Star break

A closer look at the teams gaining momentum since the All-Star break, how they got here and where they might be
going.

There’s a question to be asked of all 30 teams right around this time of year, when the NBA regular season rounds the
corner and heads for the home stretch:

Do you blossom after the All-Star break, or will you brake?

It’s all about gaining or losing momentum in March and early April, and this carries major ramifications for positioning
in the standings and avoiding the SoFi Play-In Tournament, or the flip side, trying to gain entry into it.

This season’s no different, as evident by the madness swirling at the top and in the belly of the Western Conference.

Here are the top five teams record-wise since the All-Star break, and how they got here, and where they might be going:

1. Denver Nuggets (15-3 since the break).READ MORE

A case can be made that this stretch by the Nuggets is a cut above anyone else’s this season except Boston going 20-2
from Feb. 4 through last Sunday. Denver’s sizzle combines dominance, stamina, an unwillingness to relax and a dogged
pursuit of the best record in the West.

The Nuggets’ three losses since the break were twice to Kevin Durant (the last one without Jamal Murray) and by two
points against Luka Doncic. Now take a look at the wins: over Minnesota, Sacramento, Miami (twice) and the biggest
scalp of the bunch, vs. the Celtics on March 7 in what was perhaps an NBA Finals sneak-peek.
