DENVER (TICKER) —The Denver Nuggets seek back-to-back victories for the first time in almost a month when they host the Chicago Bulls at the Pepsi Center on Tuesday.

The Nuggets, who have not won consecutive games since January 8 vs. Miami and two days later against Portland, snapped a seven-game losing streak with a 93-78 triumph over Memphis on Sunday.

Juwan Howard collected 26 points and 13 rebounds and Chris Whitney added 15 points for the Nuggets, who held the Grizzlies to 35 percent shooting (27-of-77).

The Bulls fell to 0-4 on their five-game road trip with a 115-111 overtime setback at Phoenix on Monday.

Jalen Rose contributed 28 points and eight assists and Donyell Marshall 23 and a season high-tying 18 rebounds for the Bulls, who shot just 2-of-9 in the extra session.

Chicago is a league-worst 2-24 on the road this season.

Denver has won four in a row over Chicago since a 70-68 road defeat on March 24, 2000. The Nuggets have won their last three meetings against the Bulls here since a 111-72 blowout loss on February 2, 1998.
