New Orleans Pelicans seek important victory over Denver Nuggets

With the season series tied at 1-1 and likely every victory important for Alvin Gentry's ball club -- not only to make the upcoming postseason but possibly solidify the most favorable of seedings, New Orleans should treat tonight like a playoff game. Possessing the tiebreaker, as well as handing the Nuggets another loss, is a big deal, even if we're still in December!
