The Denver Nuggets remain one of the hotter teams in the league, and they've done some of their best work on the road where they win by an average of 4.4 points while shooting 48.7 percent from the field. The Sacramento Kings are quietly putting things together, but they're a team that lets you down the second you start believing. I'm still not buying into the Kings until they can keep this up with a larger sample size. Give me the Nuggets and small chalk.
