Nuggets and Bulls both look to end struggles

Chicago (20-27) at Denver (26-24) 9:30 pm EST

DENVER (Ticker) -- A pair of slumping teams look to end their struggles when the Denver Nuggets host the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday.

The Nuggets are just 1-5 since their season-best seven-game winning streak. They are coming off of a 122-114 loss at Golden State on Monday in which their eight-point third-quarter lead evaporated in a 24-1 Warriors burst.

Carmelo Anthony scored 34 points, including 14 in the final period as he attempted to lead Denver's comeback effort. Andre Miller added 22 points and nine assists for the Nuggets, who bring a seven-game home winning streak into Wednesday's contest.

Chicago has lost the first four contests of its seven-game Western Conference road swing, including Monday's tough 109-107 overtime loss at Utah in which it led by as many as seven points in the extra session.

Ben Gordon, who scored a career-high 39 points against Phoenix on Saturday, scored 35 against the Jazz.

Chris Duhon missed the game because of a left thigh bruise. His status for Wednesday's game is uncertain.

Denver has won its last six home games against Chicago.
