While the Bulls tend to struggle in the mile high air of Denver normally, they'll have a tougher road without one their best defenders in Jimmy Butler, who's out with a sprained right big toe. "Jimmy is someone we're definitely going to miss, especially with his energy and defense," said Derrick Rose. Rose hasn't been lighting up it all season as he struggles to fit back into a game he'd been absent from for 18 months. His numbers this year are way off from his career numbers, averaging 15 points on 34.4% shooting and only 4.5 assists per game. The Nuggets have beaten the Bulls at home 12 of the last 13 games. Nate Robinson faces his old team as a guard for the Nuggets now, after leading the Bulls in the playoffs with 16.3 points per game. He hopes his wrist injury has sufficiently healed to allow him to play in his usual all-out manner. "I play through all injuries if I can," Robinson said. "I love the game too much." The Nuggets have lost 2 straight games, despite a monster game from both Ty Lawson (29 points) and J.J. Hickson (18 points, 19 rebounds) in their loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday. The Nuggets certainly like their home cooking, as they have averaged 112.3 points during their 3 game home winning streak. That offense will be tested by the well coached and feisty Bulls defense. Whichever team controls the pace wins this game.
