The Denver Nuggets and Charlotte Hornets take the court tonight, in what should be an exciting matchup. Both teams are young and promising squads.
The Nuggets find themselves currently 1-2 and the Hornets are 1-2 as well to start the year. Denver is 0-1 on the road, and Charlotte is 1-0 at the Spectrum Center through three games.
The Nuggets and Hornets rarely play each other. The last time the teams got together, was last season. The two squared off twice. The Hornets won both games, sweeping the series, 2-0.
The Denver Nuggets lost their last game at home against the Washington Wizards, 109-104. The Nuggets shot 49 percent from the field as a team, and still lost by five points. The killer for the Nuggets in the recent loss, was the 23 turnovers they committed.
The Nuggets were led by big man Nikola Jokic. Jokic was 9 of 14 from the field with 29 points and nine rebounds. Veteran forward Paul Millsap added 17 points and eight rebounds. Emmanuel Mudiay also had 15 points in 19 minutes for Denver.
Through the first three games, the Nuggets have played mediocre on the offensive end. The Denver offense is averaging 98.7 points per game this year.
Good enough for 24th in the league. Paul Millsap leads the Nuggets in scoring, but their lack of a star player could be the reason they are struggling for buckets.
On the defensive side of the court, the Nuggets are one of the best teams in the NBA. Denver is allowing 98 points per game this year. The young lock down unit ranks sixth in the NBA in points allowed. If the Nuggets can find more offense they could give Charlotte issues.
As the season progresses, hopefully the Nuggets can find a go to guy to score the ball. If not, they will be in for another long year.
The Charlotte Hornets haven’t been picked by many to make a deep postseason run this year.
The Hornets missed the postseason last year, but many believe they can make a run at a postseason birth this year. With how weak the Eastern Conference has been over the years, anything is possible in the East. Charlotte has the potential to be a 6th or 7th seed this spring.
The Hornets are one game under .500 through three games, and most recently lost to the Bucks, 103-94. Charlotte was limited to 42.3 percent shooting and shot 27 percent from three point land in the loss.
Kemba Walker is leading the Hornets in scoring this season with 21.7 points per game. He is going to need more help from his young teammates in Malik Monk and Dwayne Bacon if the Hornets are going to be better.
