Jokic should be able to dominate the paint tonight, especially if Theis is unable to go, as Boston’s frontcourt will be thin. Additionally, with some new young talent taking the floor, the Nuggets have a couple unseen options that they can throw at Brad Stevens. I expect the Nuggets to continue their strong play and extend their win streak to four games, but I’ll gladly take the points on the road here.

Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are each playing at an All-Star level, the Celtics don’t have enough help around them to win against Nuggets. 

Celtics have not had much success versus the Nuggets in recent meetings winning just 1 of their last 4, overall. They have lost their way, going 3-7 from the last 10 matches. They have lost the last two to the Eastern Conference's bottom two sides , Detroit Pistons and Washington Wizards.

You can't take Boston with any confidence and that makes the Nuggets the bet of the day as outsiders. Jokic should dominate against the Celtics’ flawed bigs and score/facilitate at a high level on offense. Despite notable absences for the Nuggets on defense, Celtics don’t have the weapons to expose those defensive weaknesses. While Celtics will compete hard and play well to start the game after consecutive embarrassing losses. Denver have won three straight against the Los Angeles Lakers, Oklahoma City Thunder and Cleveland Cavaliers and are overpriced against out of sorts Boston. Nuggets will overwhelm them led by Jokic, Murray, and MPJ in a Denver win.
