SERIES NOTES
The Nuggets have won eight of the last nine games against Orlando in Denver since the 2003-04 season … The Nuggets are just 2-18 in their last 20 games played in Orlando (had a 15-game road losing streak from the 1992-93 season through the 2007-08 season) … Denver has actually lost 21 of the last 24 games in Orlando since 1990-91 … The Nuggets and Magic had split the season series 1-1 each of the last eight years before Denver swept 2-0 in 2011-12, their first season series sweep of the Magic since 1991-92 – that stood as the longest drought for the Nuggets against any Eastern Conference team … The Nuggets own a lifetime .375 winning percentage against the Magic (18-30 all-time), which ranks as the second worst winning percentage for Denver against a single opponent (the .349 all-time winning percentage against the L.A. Lakers is the only one lower).
