Phoenix Suns fans can expect to feel a little déjà vu when watching the 2010-11 Denver Nuggets, a team led by an aging point guard (Chauncey Billups) who pushes a fast tempo in spite of his advanced age. They also run their offense through a high-scoring forward (Carmelo Anthony) whos been at the center of seemingly every trade rumor in the NBA.
Theres one other important factoid: The Nuggets have, perhaps surprisingly, gotten off to a pretty good start this season. Which means theyre essentially the 2009 Phoenix Suns.
If youre looking for a nostalgia trip, head to US Airways Center, where the Suns host the Nuggets. Due to their similar styles, the two squads usually put on high-scoring games. With the season young and both teams still fresh, theres not much reason to think that this match-up will be any different.
