Nuggets' bounce-back chance comes vs. Bulls

The Denver Nuggets took it on the chin against the best in the Western Conference, so facing one of the worst teams in the East two days later is a welcome reprieve and a chance to show they learned something from the loss.

The lesson was a harsh one, and it came at the hands of the two-time reigning champion.

A 142-111 home loss to Golden State knocked Denver (29-14) a half-game behind the Warriors in the Western Conference standings, but with the Chicago Bulls in town Thursday night there's no time to mope.
