Looking ahead

DENVER AT OKLAHOMA CITY: Tuesday, 5 p.m. PST. TV: None.

Two of the most dynamic, athletic teams in the NBA meet in what could be a prelude to a wild, wild showdown in the Western Conference playoffs. The Nuggets prevailed both times the teams met in Denver in tightly contested games, including a three-point overtime triumph in January and a victory made possible earlier this month by Ty Lawson's 21-foot basket with two-tenths of a second left. The Thunder won by 20 points in the teams' only previous meeting at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
