Denver Nuggets Betting
The Denver Nuggets are looking good as they won three of their last four games. Their only loss in that stretch was against the Dallas Mavericks and it was in overtime. Their recent win was against the much depleted Philadelphia 76ers and overwhelmed their opponent from the get-go. The victory gave Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray some time to rest and will be expected to have good energy against this game with the New York Knicks. This should be a tight one but they need their bench players to step up to help. Paul Millsap can only do so much in his body but guys like Monte Morris should have better performances.

The New York Knicks fell down to earth with their most recent loss against the Oklahoma City Thunder by a wide 12-point margin, 89-101. Julius Randle anchored the team with 18 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists and a steal. RJ Barrett had 19 points but he shot miserably from the field with 33%. Elfrid Payton had similar luck with Barret from the field and managed to finish with 16 points. Austin Rivers did 12 points from the bench but they need more from Mitch Robinson and Reggie Bullock to show that they deserve the starting spot. Immanuel Quickley had the worst doing 1-of-0 from the field.
