The Nuggets enter the game after defeating the lowly Pelicans 122:113 behind a 32 points performance by Jamal Muray and a monster triple-double by Nikola Jokic. They have lost three of the five games. Despite this tough window, the Nuggets have been destroying squads left and right, which has led them to an incredible record of 35 wins and 16 losses. The Nuggets have the best field goal percentage(50.8%) and the best three-point field goal percentage(39.7%). Their defense has improved to a whole another level and their current slump isn’t that serious. With Jokic’s other MVP-styled season and the strong Guard and Frontline rotation, they are a contender for the title.
Golden State Warriors
Golden State comes into the game after losing 114:119 in Overtime against the Timberwolves despite a 29 points performance by Stephen Curry. This broke the three-game winning streak and the team has struggled away from home. The Warriors’ season has let their coach Kerr down too and their record of 26 wins and 25 losses is a mystery. Curry has been doing a great job of scoring the ball but the defensive end has been the major problem. The Warriors’ championship defense has been questionable for the most part and there is a sign that they may not be able to even get to the Conference Semis at this rate. Can they turn around their season or pull some trades?
Expert Betting Tips
The Nuggets are too tough to deal with at home and the Warriors have struggled away from home so this means they will be clear favorites. The Nuggets' balance has been better than Golden State Warriors and they are not just dependent upon Jokic, with multiple players stepping up in different junctures. I believe the Nuggets will win this game with a scoreline of 125:115 considering the Warriors are likely to rest Curry, Thompson, and Green.
