Monday, March 18th, 2019, the Denver Nuggets are on the road to face the Boston Celtics in one of several performances on the docket for the NBA. The Nuggets last played Saturday in a close two point win over the Pacers. Likewise, the Celtics played Saturday in a victory over the Hawks.
Last season the Celtics swept the season series but the Nuggets took the initial match between the squads this year by a score of 115-107. The Celtics hold the all-time record having bested the Nuggets in 54 of their 89 matches.
Despite showing hints of chinks in the armor the Nuggets have hung on to the second seed in the West and with the Warriors also having motivation issues Denver is still only one game back of first.
Although the Nuggets aren’t road warriors they’ve maintained a .500 record away from home. This game will push them to their limit, however, as the Celtics are beasts at home.
All five starters scored in double-digits in the victory over the Pacers with Nikola Jokic leading the way with 26 points despite eventually getting ejected for arguing with the ref.
Trey Lyles is sidelined with a left hamstring strain but is likely to return to action against the Celtics on Monday. Michael Porter Jr. is recovering from offseason back surgery to repair a herniated disc and is expected to be idle for the remainder of the season.
Winners of five in their last six the Celtics have seemingly figured out their issues while on a cross country flight. Suddenly they look like the strongest team in the Eastern Conference.
In the win over the Hawks, five Celtics scored in double figures with Kyrie Irving’s 30 points leading the way. Jaylen Brown pitched in with 23 off the bench while Marcus Morris (19), Jayson Tatum (18) and Marcus Smart (16) also contributed.
Al Horford (sore knee) had to leave the last game and Guershon Yabusele (illness) missed the last game but both expected to suit up for the match versus the Nuggets.
Robert Williams III is also dealing with illness and uncertain for Monday. Gordon Hayward is going through the league-mandated concussion protocol after taking a shot to the head and is not expected to play Monday against the Hawks.
