Nuggets-Timberwolves Preview

(AP) -- Brian Shaw's tenure as the Denver Nuggets head coach ended amidst mounting losses. Interim coach Melvin Hunt's stint, thus far, is perfect.

Under new leadership, the Nuggets have a realistic chance at their first consecutive victories since mid-January on Wednesday night when they face the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Denver (21-39) had lost six straight and 19 of 21 when the team fired Shaw prior to Tuesday's game against Milwaukee. The Nuggets responded with a 106-95 victory over the Bucks.
