Griffin may return when Clippers face Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets are seven games below the .500 mark but feel a sense of optimism. The Los Angeles Clippers are 14 games above the even mark and are feeling some angst.

Perspective and expectations have everything to do with the opposite views as the two teams get ready to play Saturday night at Pepsi Center.

The Nuggets (17-24) are coming off a 14-point loss in San Antonio on Thursday that stopped their three-game winning streak. Denver was missing four players but still made it a game against the 33-9 Spurs, a loss that did little to diffuse the enthusiasm the team had after outscoring three straight teams and putting together an impressive offensive display.
