The Line: Nuggets (+190) vs. OKC (-230)
I really will enjoy this match up today. Nuggets are going to be missing starter Will Barton. OKC will be short one of their studs Denis Schroeder. You know the drill, next man up. This Nuggets team is longer than most of their opponents and can force teams to play out of their comfort zone. Great center battle to watch between Steven Adams and Nikola Jokic.
Something else to watch is the ball movement. Nuggets are 4th in the NBA in assists while OKC is 28th. Most other stat lines between these two squads are as even as it gets. OKC’s current form has been solid, winning their last game 110-94 against the Jazz. Nuggets are coming off an ugly loss to Miami where they were just out played in the paint and couldn’t find a rhythm. Look for them to correct that here in a good better match up for them against the Thunder.
My wager: Nuggets +5.5 (-110)
