Monday, January 25th finds the Denver Nuggets playing the Dallas Mavericks for the second time this season. In the first match on January 7th, the Mavericks won 124-117 in overtime.
Both clubs got out to a slow start to the season but have turned things around lately. Denver is 7-3 through the last 10 games and has climbed to fifth in the West.
Dallas is 6-4 in their last 10 games sitting in ninth which is relevant given how hard they were hit by injuries and players out due to health and safety protocols.
Last season, the squads played three times with the Mavericks winning two of the three contests. Dallas holds the all-time record between the squads with 91 victories in the team’s 177 meetings.
This past weekend The Nuggets played a back-to-back set in Phoenix. While the Nuggets won both games it required overtime on Friday and double-overtime on Saturday.
Though it wasn’t ideal the games required that much effort it speaks to how far the Nuggets have come since the season started.
Nikola Jokic delivered a massive double-double of 29 points and 22 rebounds in the win. Jamal Murray offered 26 points and Gary Harris chipped in 10 points.
In his second game back after missing ten Michael Porter Jr. collected a double-double of 14 points and 11 rebounds. JaMychal Green (16) and Monte Morris (13) were the other double-figures contributors.
Greg Whittington is out until March after undergoing left knee surgery
While the Nuggets played three extra frames of basketball this weekend Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis were at the opposite end of the spectrum.
First, the Mavericks elected to rest Porzingis against the Rockets Saturday but not because of an injury. Rather, the team is exercising caution in the big man’s return from a long absence due to his knee injury.
As for Doncic, because the Rockets were trouncing the Mavericks, coach Rick Carlisle elected to have him sit the final frame.
Despite his limited minutes Doncic still managed to amass 26 points, five rebounds, eight assists, and a block.
Tim Hardaway Jr. has struggled of late shooting 0 for 12 versus the Raptors and 4 of 13 in the loss to Houston. He managed to collect 15 points as did Boban Marjanovic while Trey Burke scored 13 as the only other double-figure contributor versus the Rockets.
Maxi Kleber, Dwight Powell, Dorian Finney-Smith, and Josh Richardson have all missed numerous games in the health and safety protocol and are still listed as out indefinitely.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
Although the Mavericks will be fresher the key will be who handles the Jokic defensive matchup. Porzingis could get the assignment but unlike the Zinger, the Joker is used to drawing the top opponent defenders on a nightly basis.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nuggets ATS
It’s a bit of a coin toss especially not knowing if the Mavericks will get any players back so I’m leaning toward the Nuggets with the caveat if any of quartet out quarantining returns to flip back to Dallas.
