Denver Nuggets Betting

The Nuggets were humiliated at home by the New Orleans Pelicans on Christmas day. Nikola Jokic had 20 points and ten rebounds but he also shot 40% from the field. Paul Millsap struggled and he only registered 16 minutes and went scoreless. Garry Harris also had a bad night as he shot 2-of-10 from the field. In an attempt to find some solutions off the bench, Michael Beasly and Jerami Grant combined for 30 points but they were not able to salvage the game. This loss showed that a bad day in the NBA could result in a bottom-dwelling team to beat them. The Grizzlies should take a page on the Pelican’s book and will try to do the same in this game.
