The Nuggets have caught fire in the last couple weeks as Denver is currently on a four game winning streak and have won 10 of their last 13 en route to a 12-5 record and second place in the Northwest division.
The Nuggets kicked off a five game road trip with a victory over the Milwaukee Bucks which was recapped in the Week Four in Review.
Denver then headed to Philadelphia where the 76ers were undefeated at home so far this year. Denver handed them their first home loss in overtime 108-104 despite Timofey Mozgov not being in the lineup due to a lower back injury. Andre Miller was two rebounds away from a triple double as the 35-year old had 28 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds. Nene had 20 points to go with 14 boards and Ty Lawson added 13 points and seven assists.
Next on the schedule were the Washington Wizards who were fresh off a home upset victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Denver was missing Nene due to a heel injury but the Nuggets prevailed by a score of 108-104. Al Harrington led all scorers with a season high 29 points along with seven rebounds off the bench. Danilo Gallinari and Lawson contributed 21 points with Lawson also adding nine rebounds and six assists.
Denver finished the week with a trip to Madison Square Garden as Gallinari and Timofey Movgoz returned to their former home court in Denver's double overtime victory over the New York Knics, 119-115. This was the first time the teams have met since the Carmelo Anthony trade and it was actually Gallinari besting Anthony as the fourth year man out of Italy got to the line 20 times and scored a career high 37 points to go with 11 rebounds. Three other Nuggets had double doubles as Nene recorded 12 points and 13 rebounds, Harrington 24 points and 11 rebounds and Miller scored 14 points and dished out 12 dimes.
