Denver Nuggets vs Minnesota Timberwolves.
Ball Arena (Pepsi Center), Denver, USA.
Playing in the highlands is still very difficult, and when the home team’s leader is also in full order, the task becomes increasingly difficult. But here are the COVID protocols cutting into the rotation, and will Michael Malone’s team have enough strength?Get Your Welcome Bonus!
Denver are always strong at home, and this season is no exception
That’s right, and the numbers back that up for us. Jokic and company have won eight times in twelve home games and lost only four. And injuries knocking players out of the rotation one by one doesn’t affect that much. The Nuggets are not very productive at home, 104 points per game, but they are very good defensively, with the visitors averaging less than a hundred points coming to Ball Arena.
All these indicators say that the home team will try to get their third win in a row tonight, especially since they beat the Wizards at home in their last game. And yet there are doubts, several players have come under the COVID protocol at once, and it’s a truncated squad, albeit with the main star in the line-up. Whether that’s enough, we’ll find out today.
Minnesota will try hard to pick up a second straight win after a long losing streak
Even though they played poorly in December, their five losses in six games were one of the best seasons in recent memory for this Minneapolis team. Ninth in the West with twelve wins and fifteen losses is very good. Towns looks extremely motivated. While spending his second season, Edwards is already proving to be a complete star. These guys have managed to surprise the public more than once this year.
Despite all the problems in December, the last game ended with a win over Portland at their arena. And overall, the Timberwolves’ away season is not too bad. Eleven meetings with a balance of five wins and six losses, and another interesting point are that Chris Finch’s team has a much better attack in away meetings with 111 points. Let’s see how we can use that today.
