Denver Nuggets Betting

The Denver Nuggets were able to survive Damian Lillard’s barrage and the Portland Trail Blazers in six games. Nikola Jokic has been doing his best leading the team with 33 points, 10.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists. He has been getting help from Michael Porter Jr. who has stepped up and shown his potential with 18.8 points a night. Monte Morris has also contributed well filling in for Jamal Murray as he did 15.3 markers a night. Aaron Gordon is another factor for the team along with rookie Facundo Campazzo and they will be expected to step it up as well. Austin Rivers has been inconsistent but if he gets his numbers, the Nuggets are hard to beat.

The Phoenix Suns are known right now to have dethroned the defending champions Los Angeles Lakers and they will look to finish the job right to show that they deserve to be in their position.

Devin Booker has blossomed to a legitimate star in the league as he tallied 47 points in the close out game.
