The Nuggets look to make it two straight road wins on consecutive nights when they travel to San Antonio to take on the Spurs Wednesday night.
Denver comes in off an outright upset over the Pelicans Tuesday night 115-98.
The Spurs have came out of the gates hot as they’ve won 8 of their first 10 games and are finding LaMarcus Aldridge fits right into their system.
The Nuggets have won four of five games after their slow start and come in off one of their most impressive wins of the season on Tuesday night. Denver beat the Pelicans outright as 5.5 point underdogs as they got contributions from 4 different players.
Leading the charge was Danilo Gallinari who finished with 32 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists in what was easily his best game of the season. Gallinari has scored 25 or more in 4 of the last 6 games for Denver.
Also contributing in a big way was Gary Harris (16 points), Emmanuel Mudlay (12 points, 8 assists), and Will Barton, who had 17 points and 7 rebounds.
Barton’s improved game has been the major contribution in this Denver turn around as he’s stepped up in place of the injured Wilson Chandler, who is out for the season. With Chandler down, this is Barton’s chance to really make a name for himself in the league.
Barton has hit 10 of 15 3 point attempts over his last 3 games.
The Spurs conclude their 3 game homestand in search of their 6th straight win as they continue to beat up on teams they’re supposed to beat.
They’ve avoided playing down to their opponent as they’ve knocked off 3 non playoff teams from last season along with a pair of wins over the rebuilding Trail Blazers, who they essentially stole from in the off season when they acquired LaMarcus Aldridge.
Still, the Spurs hot start is exactly what they needed. Aldridge failed to score double digit points for the first time in 67 straight games, but got some help from his new teammates as the Spurs went on for a 93-80 win over Portland.
The Spurs are dominating these sub par teams on the defensive end. San Antonio has held their last 5 opponents to under 100 points and 3 of those to less than 90. Overall this season, San Antonio is allowing just 90.6 points per game.
The Spurs have also dominated the head-to-head portion of this series as they’ve won 7 straight against Denver and 5 at home.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Nuggets have looked impressive as of late, but with this being a back-to-back 2nd leg, things could be tough on them. Against a team that wears opponents down defensively, this is not a favorable matchup here.

The Spurs race out to an early and use the fatigue of the Nuggets to turn in a lopsided win here on Wednesday.
