Hidden in the Rocky Mountains is a group of fast-breaking, slam-dunking, 3-point-shooting, and shot-blocking mavens whose winning streak would be the talk of the league if not for another one currently sopping up all of the NBA public’s attention.

With a 101-95 victory over Sacramento on Saturday, the Denver Nuggets have won a franchise-best 15 straight games.
