With the Dallas Mavericks taking care of the New Orleans Hornets Wednesday night it set up a first round matchup between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Denver Nuggets.
The Thunder have had the Nuggets number in the previous two meetings. Winning in Denver, 101-94 and than in Oklahoma City 104-89.
The Nuggets will look to get healthy as Nene, Ty Lawson, Danilo Gallinari, Arron Afflalo, Timofey Mozgov, Al Harrington, Wilson Chandler and Chris Andersen have each missed some time down the stretch due to an injury.
The first two games will be played in Oklahoma City on Sunday and Wednesday and the Nuggets will host Game 3 and 4 on Saturday and Monday.
Last week we discussed how the Nuggets matched up with the Thunder and we will have an updated playoff preview up Friday morning.
