NBA: Denver Nuggets - Dallas Mavericks
- Title : NBA: Denver Nuggets - Dallas Mavericks
The Denver Nuggets got off to a terrible start to the season, with one win and four losses. However, after that, the team improved: two wins in a row. Now the Nuggets are in 8th place in the table, which is clearly not the result that the team’s fans are expecting. Michael Porter Jr. will miss the next game due to the NBA’s health and safety protocols related to COVID-19.
This is a match of two equal teams, in which it isn’t easy to choose a winner. Nevertheless, I prefer the Denver Nuggets. They have a more talented roster and play better in recent matches.
Without Porzingis, the Mavericks have struggled inside both defending the paint and rebounding. Doncic has done what he can to replace the rebounding side, Unfortunately, his extra effort rebounding will go to waste if no one steps up to slow down Jokic. With Jokic in a position to score at will, this game could come down to Denver’s defense, which has disappointed all year. The Nuggets’ offense has shown its ability to win in shootouts by ranking third in Offensive
I like Denver in this game. They have a two-game winning streak and seem to have turned a corner after a rough start to their season. Doncic is going to be a load to handle but he has too many inconsistent teammates and he’s forced to carry the water without Kristaps Porzingis and I don’t see him being able to beat the Nuggets all by his lonesome. I will go with Denver in this one but i think Dallas cover the spread.
- Dallas is 7-3 in their last 10 games against Denver.
- Denver is 2-6 in their last 8 games.
