Denver now enters the tougest 6 game stretch of the season.
 
the nuggets are now heading into the toughest stretch of the season. here is how this 6 game stretch looks:
12/15 @ Dallas
12/16 @ Houston
12/19 vs Cleveland
12/20 @ Pheo
12/22 vs Portland
12/23 @ portland

how do you think they'll do? I believe they could go 5-1 and possibly 6-0

No way in hell are they going 6-0, I'd say 3-3 is more like it, if that. Out of all those games they are the favorite in 1, that being home vs Portland, all the rest they are 50-50 at best.

we can win every one of those games, but i don't think that's realistic. my predictions:

@ Dallas-Loss
@ Houston-Win
vs Cleveland-Win
@ Phoenix-Loss
vs Portland-Win
@ Portland-Loss

I say we go 3-3, but I think that game in Portland could easily be a win. I say 4-2 at best, 3-3 is a must.

I'd love to go 5-1, 6-0 is just not going to happen unless teams come out sluggish and we get a few surprise wins. Realistcly thinking I'd say 4-2 would be ideal but 3-3 is alot more likely as long as we win more than we loose.

My guess is 4-2.

Dallas is playing well
Houston is bang up
Cleveland is playing well
Phx just got off a recent trade
Portland is the 8th seed in the west overrated

Denver with Billups:

Against teams Below .500 : 11 - 0 ( 3 times Minnesotta, memphis, Charlotte, Golden state, Sacramento, Clippers, Chicago, Bucks, Raptors)
Against teams Above .500 (which includes unhealthy spurs, and dallas mavericks at a time below .500) 4 - 4

I am not sure on nuggets chances. But anything is possible.

The Nuggets are playing well, but not well enough to go 5-1 or 6-0. 4-2 should be what they're aiming for but 3-3 is more realistic. These are some good teams and most are away games. Here's how I see it playing out:

12/15 @ Dallas - L

Dallas has been playing well lately, I don't see them losing this one on their homecourt. It could go either way though.

12/16 @ Houston - W

Denver should win this one. Houston is banged up.

12/19 vs Cleveland - L

Cleveland has historically played well against the West. I'd expect the Cavs to win this one.

12/20 @ Pheo - W

The Suns just made a big trade and probably won't be quite used to things yet. Denver should win this one. Another tight one though, could go either way.

12/22 vs Portland - W

Portland is young, though they've played well. I don't see either team beating the other 2x in a row, so I'll pick the home team to win each.

12/23 @ portland - L

See above...

So, 3-3. Best case scenario is 4-2, worst case is 2-4 IMO. I don't see them beating Cleveland and I don't see them beating Portland twice. The rest can go either way.

agreed with most everything, but denver typically owns cleveland, especially at home.
