On Tuesday, May 11th, the Denver Nuggets meets the Charlotte Hornets for the second and final time this season. In the initial meeting on March 17th, the Nuggets won 129-104.
Last season, the squads played twice with Denver sweeping the regular-season series. The Nuggets hold the all-time record having won 32 matches of the 61 played.
While the Nuggets were one of the hottest teams down the stretch this last week injuries caught up to them as they lost three of their four games.
Each of those losses occurred versus elite squads (Lakers, Jazz, and Nets) while the lone victory came via an impressive defensive battle against the Knicks.

Denver needs will spend this week trying to outperform the Clippers in an effort to get the higher third seed so they can carry home court through two rounds of the postseason.
On the other hand, since Denver is ensured of the fourth seed they might want to use this final week to get Nikola Jokic some well-needed rest and try to get some of their walking wounded healthy.
Jokic still looks like a lock to win Most Valuable Player although Joel Embiid and Chris Paul are still in the mix.
Aaron Gordon (right calf contusion) is probable while Monte Morris (right hamstring strain) is questionable.
Will Barton (right hamstring strain), P.J. Dozier (right adductor strain) are both out while Jamal Murray (torn ACL) is lost for the season.
Considering the numerous injuries the Hornets got hit with to end the season they did well to stay afloat and keep their hopes for postseason play alive.
When LaMelo Ball and Gordon Hayward went down to the wrist and foot injuries respectively Charlotte was seeded fourth looking at hosting a first-round series.
Ball is back, Hayward is still out and the Hornets begin the final week in eighth a single game up on the Pacers and two games back of the Celtics.
The schedule didn’t do them any favors as the final week features matches versus the Nuggets, Clippers, Knicks, and Wizards. All teams invested in winning with the final game versus Washington potentially playing a major role in the final seeding.
In their last match, they lost a 110-112 heartbreaker to the undermanned Pelicans. Terry Rozier led with 43 points, PJ Washington registered a double-double of 14 points and 12 rebounds, Ball scored 22 and Cody Zeller added 17.
Devonte’ Graham (right knee discomfort) is questionable. Miles Bridges (health and safety protocols), Hayward (foot), and Cody Martin (left ankle sprain) are out.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Charlotte Hornets NBA Prediction:
Both teams have the motivation to win given the race to finish in specific seeds. The question is which Denver defense shows up. The Nuggets defense that resulted in nine wins in 10 games in late April, or the defense that coughed up 127 points to the Jazz and 125 points to the Nets — who were both playing shorthanded!
