Denver is currently on top of the Northwest Division, a group of five teams with at least twelve wins. The Nuggets won another road game on Wednesday night in Orlando, their seventh consecutive win.
Half of Denver’s twenty-four games have come on the road and, so far, it has won eight of them, including the last five: at Minnesota, Oklahoma City, Portland, Toronto and on Wednesday against the Magic.
Head Coach Mike Malone admitted that his team was lucky to beat Orlando in a game that went into overtime. The Magic shot just eight free throws to Denver’s thirty-seven and the officials missed what would have been a big call at the end of regulation when it looked like Jamal Murray stepped out-of-bounds before being fouled and hitting two free throws.
The Magic offset the free throw discrepancy with a barrage of three-pointers, hitting twenty from downtown, including six from Evan Fournier.
Murray led the Nuggets with thirty-one and Nikola Jokic came up two rebounds shy of a triple-double and finished with thirteen assists.
Gary Harris missed the game with a hip injury he sustained in the Nuggets’ previous win over Toronto. Consider him day-to-day for this game.
Road wins are a key for the Nuggets, who have an opportunity to pick up another two before going home. Denver plays in Atlanta after this game and, given the quality of teams it has defeated on the road in just the last two weeks, these two should be wins.
But the Hornets are desperate for a win after three losses in a row. Charlotte dropped consecutive home games to the Jazz and Pelicans before going to Minnesota and losing another one, this time by seventeen points, to the Timberwolves.
Despite being two games under .500, the Hornets are just a half-game behind the 12–13 Orlando Magic in the Southeast Division.
This recent run is a reminder of how much tougher life could be in the Western Conference. Charlotte will return to Eastern Conference opponents after this game, with a trip to New York to play the Knicks, followed by home games against the Pistons and the Knicks again.
Kemba Walker only managed fifteen points against the Timberwolves but he’s going to find more space in this game. He’s going to have to give the team about two seasons worth of output this year to take the Hornets to a division crown by his lonesome.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction: Charlotte sneaks a win.
Denver has been playing so great but it’s played a bunch of road games lately and isn’t completely healthy, which has stretched the rotation. It’s all going to catch up to the Nuggets in this game.
