The Pacers evened things up on their current home stand as they routed the Hawks 110-92 on Thursday night.
The Nuggets put and end to their 2 game losing streak with a win over Washington in Washington 117-103.
Wins have been hard to come by this month for the Nuggets.
Denver has just 4 wins in the month of January and they’ve all resulted in losses the next game. Unable to put together back to back wins this month, the Nuggets will have one last chance to do so after they went into Washington and grabbed a road win on Thursday night.
Denver led by 12 after 3 quarters and held off a late rush from the Wizards to secure the win. Five different players scored in double figures led by Danilo Gallinari and Emmanuel Mudlay. The duo had a combined 46 points, 10 assists, and 9 rebounds in the win.
Gallinari has been the major bright spot for the Nuggets lately and really this season as he is averaging 19.4 points and 5.7 rebounds per game.
The Nuggets took out Indiana in Denver back on 1/17 in a 129-126 win.
The Pacers allowed Denver to outscore them 30-25 in the 3rd quarter and 45-35 in the 4th quarter as they completely lost it defensively.
It’s been very rare to see Indiana struggle defensively as they allow just 99.8 points per game.
Indiana has had struggles of their own as they’ve dropped 6 of 8 overall and have really stumbled back in the Eastern Conference. They’re currently holding onto the final playoff spot in the and hold just a 2 game lead on a big pack behind them.
Indiana will have the tough task of 2 games in 3 days as they play this one against Denver, then welcome in Cleveland on Monday. They do get the benefit of both games being at home, as they are 14-7 SU inside Bankers Life Fieldhouse this season.
The bench played a big role for Indiana in the loss to Denver earlier this month. They kept them in game by producing 3 players in double figures, with Myles Turner leading the way with 25 points.

Free NBA Prediction:
Both teams have struggled in the month of January, but Denver always seems to play well when they see Indiana.
The Nuggets snuck by the Pacers earlier this month obviously thanks to their offense and the 129 points. Denver got out and ran all game long in transition, which is certainly when they’re at their best.
Look for them to use a similar style here, and keep this close throughout.
