Some pegged Denver as a surprise team in the West but I never saw it. At 9-15 they are pretty much what I expected they would be.
Dallas seems to always come up short in the offseason and this year it is really hurting them in the win column.
Not exactly a lot of reasons to watch this one unless you got some money down.
I really do not understand what Denver is trying to do with their lineup and how they play. It all seems mismatched to me and the results are not coming.
Wilson Chandler is a nice player but he is more complimentary than a star. On this team he is the leading scorer at 18ppg.
I think they want Danilo Galinari to be their star but he is having a bad season. Again I think he is more of a complimentary player than a lead dog.
Whether they want to admit it or not the strength of the Nuggets is up the middle. Jusuf Nurkic and Nikola Jokic are more than serviceable. Combined they average 20/14 and they are efficient.
They should deal one for a guard that can actually play.
I still do not see what the fuss is all about with Emmanuel Mudiay. His shooting is actually worse than it was a year ago. Sure he is quick but you are supposed to get better after year one not worse.
Will Barton has a few tricks but the Nuggets best guard is probably Jameer Nelson. That says a lot about the state of things in Denver.
This is going to be a long season in Big D. Not only are they losing but Dirk is out indefinitely. He is not as quick as he used to be but the guy can still score.
The one good thing happening in Dallas is that they are getting their money’s worth from Harrison Barnes. They made a big investment and he is showing that he can be a big contributor averaging 20ppg.
JJ Barea is also having a good season, averaging a career best 16ppg but I have never been a fan of him in a lead role. He is third on the team in minutes.
Their other major offseason addition was Andrew Bogut. When he has been on the floor he has given them some defense and rebounding but he is out right now.
In their last game they started Salah Mahri at center. The dude has size at 7’2″ but he is a big time project.
Dallas is the lowest scoring team in the league. With Dirk out they are not getting much from the frontcourt (I consider Barnes a wing).
Their defense has been pretty good which is why their ATS record is better than their overall record but still not good 9-14 ATS.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
When two bad teams meet someone still gets a victory. This looks like a pretty good spot for the Nuggets. They are the better team and get to take advantage of the Dirkless Mavs.
