Venue: Ball Arena.
The New York Knicks will play their next game in Denver against one of the best teams in the West, the Denver Nuggets. Will the Knickerbockers be able to pull out a win from a tough away game? Tom Thibodeau’s team has been on a phenomenal run lately, so this scenario doesn’t look impossible.
Denver rarely lose, especially at home
Colorado teams are always the most dangerous on their home turf. The reason is the high altitude, which makes it hard for a visiting opponent to breathe. The Nuggets, of course, are no exception. Michael Malone’s team has 12 wins in their last 13 games at Ball Arena. The only loss was to Boston when their opponent won by a 31-3 run in the second half.
In the previous game, Denver lost to the Lakers, though away. 89-93, the Lakers just needed it more.
New York are heading to the end like an avalanche
One might have assumed that under Tom Thibodeau, the Knicks would add. However, hardly anyone could have guessed that the coach’s work would turn out to be so fruitful. The Knicks approach the game against Denver in 4th place in the Eastern Conference standings. Only Milwaukee, Philadelphia and Brooklyn are higher. Below that are Boston, Miami, and plenty more.
The Knicks were good against Memphis in their last game, 118-104. Now Thibodeau’s men have, by the way, 12 wins in their last 13 games.
Expert Betting Tips
The Knicks, even in such difficult conditions, can give a sensation. Tom Thibodeau’s team has made such a phenomenal run that an away win over the Nuggets would not be too surprising. Nikola Jokic, of course, is also in crazy shape, but the Knicks are one of the best defenses in the league to deal with MVP contenders, among other things. We predict that the visitors will claim victory in Colorado.
