Two of the best teams from this NBA Season will face each other Saturday Night, when Denver Nuggets welcome Brooklyn Nets at Ball Arena in Denver, Colorado. Jazz are doing amazingly strong at home, as Nets will challenge this home record with James Harden in great shape.
Nuggets have gone 25-10 this season at home, with a 6-0 run! The transformation of the Denver Nuggets since the injury to Jamal Murray has went fast, from being a team that felt superior, to a team that everybody now have a little less fear against. Being at top of the Western Conference says it all. But also the way they have done it, is impressive. A fast offence, with the MVP favorite Nikola Jokic, and a tough defense have made them very hard to face. Especially at home in Ball Arena.
Now Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant and co. will try to spoil their great run, and I actually see them having a lot of diffeculties against the Nuggets tonight. However, James Harden is out of play, but two of the big three will play. That means, it will primarily be up to Irving, Durant, Harris and DeAndre Jordan to make things exciting. And maybe, this will be too challenging, as Nuggets are coming of a win last night.
An interesting Player Speciel for tonight is Kyrie Irving. He is killing it. Hit the over O/U 26.5 -110 in 3 of his latest 4 games. What a player he is showing up to be when the Nets needs him the most. In his latest game he hit 7 3-pointshots from 13 attempts. His total at the end of the game was 45 the highest all season long. He should see his usage tonight in what i think will be late 4th quarter decider.
