The Milwaukee Bucks will look to finish their road trip off with a win at altitude as they visit the Denver Nuggets on Sunday night.
Following an underwhelming performance and a heartbreaking overtime loss to the L.A. Clippers on Saturday, the Milwaukee Bucks will have no time to dwell on what could have been as they match up with the Denver Nuggets on Sunday.
Just like the Bucks, the Nuggets have started the season off with an excellent 9-3 record, find themselves in the upper echelons of their conference rankings, and have a radically overhauled defense to thank for that transformation.
Also similarly to the Bucks, the Nuggets come into this game in the midst of their first real taste of adversity on the season to date.
As Milwaukee’s three losses have all come in their last five games, the Nuggets enter Sunday’s matchup fresh off the back of consecutive losses to the Grizzlies and Nets.
With all of that in mind, let’s take a look at three of the elements worth keeping an eye on as the Bucks and Nuggets face off on Sunday night from the Pepsi Center.
