Atlanta has taken another step back after taking a couple steps forward as they head into Denver on Monday night.
If things weren’t tough enough right now, they currently hold an 8 game losing streak in Denver.
The Hawks will try to change their fortunes and end their current 2 game losing streak while the Nuggets try to make it back to back wins.
The Hawks have dropped 4 of their last 7 overall and have taken a major step back lately after looking like the team from last season.
Atlanta has slipped into 4th now in the Eastern Conference and will try to erase a loss to the Phoenix Suns here on Monday.
The Hawks fell 98-95 as it’s become apparent that Atlanta simply has no answer in the beginning of games. They dig themselves too big of holes and cannot get themselves out of them.
PG Jeff Teague hasn’t been contributing as much lately as he is just 12 of 37 over the last 3 games. Along with his struggles, the Hawks also missed Millsap in the loss to the Suns.
Atlanta’s recent struggles have put them at just 11-12 on the road this season.
The Nuggets don’t own too many opponents. However, the Atlanta Hawks are one of them when they play at the Pepsi Center.
Denver has won 8 straight at home against them and look to make it 3 in a row overall as they’ve hit a solid stride. Denver beat Detroit 104-101 as Danilo Gallinari continues to play at a very high level.
The Nuggets F put in 30 points and is averaging 24.1 points in the month of January. He’s also put in 9 20+ point games this month.
Power forward Kenneth Faried continues to battle a groin injury and is listed as QUESTIONABLE for this one Monday night.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Hawks continue to stumble out of the gates in games, causing them many big holes to dig themselves out of.
They haven’t been able to dig themselves out lately and they run into a team that just simply has their number in Denver.
Faried’s status is important, but Gallinari is playing at a very high level, giving Denver the edge here.
