The Nuggets are quietly moving up the Western Conference standings behind a 13-game win streak, a streak that includes four wins over three of the four teams currently positioned ahead of them. They haven't lost to a conference foe since early January, coming at the hands of the Thunder. A big reason is their dominance in the paint, an area where they've outscored their opponents in 50 straight games. Have the Nuggets done enough to be considered a legitimate threat?
The Nuggets set a franchise record with 13 straight wins and 14 straight against teams in the West.
