Not only will it take on a young and talented Nuggets squad that upended the C’s 123-107 on Nov. 7 (AEDT), but it will also do so at the highest elevation in the NBA, at 5,280 feet above sea level.


“You can feel it,” Isaiah Thomas said of the elevation. “The first couple minutes of that first quarter, and the third quarter, you can definitely feel it.”

The team has already played four games and traveled more than 4,600 miles over the last eight days heading into today’s contest.


However, regardless of those factors, Marcus Smart believes that he and his teammates are in a good place physically to be able to overcome the challenges provided by Denver’s elevation and talent level.

“Everybody’s doing a good job of taking care of their body,” Smart said prior to Friday morning’s shootaround. “I think we’re doing a good job with our bodies and our bodies are feeling good, and that’s a good sign for us.”
