(AP) — Two of the NBA’s four winless teams meet Tuesday night, though one of them being without a victory comes as a bigger surprise than the other.
After a disheartening three-game road trip, the Denver Nuggets open their home schedule against the Detroit Pistons with both teams looking to get on track offensively.
Denver was stunned in the finale of its trip, losing 119-116 to Miami on Saturday as Ray Allen’s four-point play with 6.7 seconds gave Denver its first 0-3 start in six years.
Danilo Gallinari’s struggles in his two games haven’t helped. The club’s second-leading scorer last season, Gallinari is averaging 18.0 points but shooting 25.8 percent from the floor and 16.7 percent from 3-point range.
