Covers Preview - The Denver Nuggets are suddenly having trouble scoring points and are hoping a return home can end their latest slide. The Nuggets will be trying to avoid a third straight loss when they host the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday. The Timberwolves have dropped six in a row and are just the team to help Denver out of its offensive slump due to a defense that is still coming together.
