Nuggets look to improve postseason seeding vs. Timberwolves

With a playoff berth clinched, the Denver Nuggets can improve their postseason positioning during a road trip that continues Thursday in Minneapolis against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Denver (45-24) tipped off its four-game road swing to end its regular season on Tuesday with a 117-112 win in Charlotte. Michael Porter Jr. and Nikola Jokic both scored 30 points in the victory, which stopped a brief slump of three losses over the previous four games.

Despite playing the past month without 21.2-point per game scorer Jamal Murray, who sustained a torn ACL on April 12, the Nuggets are locked into a top-four seed in the Western Conference and can improve their standing over these final three games.
