Rockets, Nuggets meet in clash of first-place teams

The Denver Nuggets built expectations for this season with a breakout 2018-19 campaign that brought them within a game of the Western Conference finals.

The Nuggets have been tested early this season but might face the toughest challenge to date in their next meeting.

The Houston Rockets, winners of eight in a row and rolling with James Harden and Russell Westbrook reunited, can serve as a measuring stick for Denver. The Nuggets host Houston on Wednesday night in a matchup of first-place teams.
