Denver Nuggets Betting
The Denver Nuggets road trip to the east has been great for them winning back-to-back games against the Philadelphia 76ers and New York Knicks. This team will still play without Michael Porter Jr. but they have adjusted well without him. Nikola Jokic had a double-double of 22 points and 10 rebounds but they need Jamal Murray to get into playoff form. The scoring guard had an off night with just nine points but other players managed to pick it up. A total of six Nuggets scored in double-figures and that shows this team is deep in talent. Gary Harris had 14 and Monte Morris came off the bench with 12.

Where is Kyrie Irving’ has been the question thrown at the team and it has exploded in the media. There is still no word that Irving will be playing in this game but the good news is that Kevin Durant is back and looked good during their last match. The Next lost their most recent game against the Oklahoma City Thunder by a wide 13-point margin. The bright side is that Durant never lost a beat and did 36 points and 11 boards in the loss. Caris LeVert is ready to step up and Jarret Allen is starting to blossom in the starting role. His team is loaded with talent and will compete well with or without Irving.
