Raptors, Nuggets face off in game between conference leaders

Sunday night's marquee matchup in the NBA features the top teams in the Eastern and Western Conference.

No, it's not Boston vs. Golden State, as many would expect. Instead, Toronto and Denver lead their respective conferences a third of the way through the season.

The Raptors (23-8) come into Sunday's matchup in Denver banged up, but they have company. The Nuggets are missing three starters from opening night but have been able to push through for their best start in decades.
