Nuggets look to extend recent dominance over Thunder

The Denver Nuggets hope they have set aside a rough patch as they prepare to host the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night.

A superb 13-3 start was followed by losses in five of six games. But Denver responded with a solid 114-99 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday in the opener of a five-game homestand.

The Nuggets (15-8) moved the ball well in making 18 of 36 3-point shots while also showing tenacity on the boards with a 48-35 rebounding advantage.
