If you’re looking for a Colorado team to hoist a championship trophy this year, the choices are clear. With the Rockies expected to be in the cellar, and the Broncos wandering the desert, it’s the Avalanche, Nuggets or bust. The Avalanche (13-8) stand third in the West heading into their outdoor game against the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday at Lake Tahoe. The Nuggets (15-13) are holding down the No. 8 slot in the Western Conference, with a trip to Cleveland on Friday coming up next. Both still have decent odds to win a title, although the Avalanche at +600 (bet $100 to win $600) have the best odds in the NHL, according to co.superbook.com . Only their Lake Tahoe opponent, the Golden Knights, can match the 6-to-1 odds. The Tampa Bay Lightning and Boston Bruins are both currently listed at +700.

MIAMI — NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has heard all the reasons why the league should not have an All-Star Game in Atlanta next weekend. He has two reasons why the league should: the fans and the game’s economy.
