The Denver Nuggets got their second win of the season over a young, up incoming Minnesota Timberwolves team. While the Detroit Pistons are coming off their second loss of the season at the hands of the Brooklyn Nets.
But now both teams are looking to put all that in the past, as they hope to pull out the win in this next outing.
The Denver Nuggets are looking to keep the ball rolling and make it 2 wins in a row with a victory over the Detroit Pistons.
Last match their defense set the tone early, as they held Minnesota to 99 points in the game, while shooting 39.8% from the field. That was a key contributor in getting them the win, as they found ways to stop the Timberwolves offensive attack whenever they went on a run.
However next game their going up against an elite defensive unit in the Detroit Pistons. They’ve already held teams to below 90 points in three different games. That’s really impressive especially when considering their only 5 games into the season.
So with that, the Denver Nuggets have got to focus on scoring efficiently in this matchup, because if they don’t the Detroit Pistons are going to continue getting easy points off of good defensive possessions that lead to easy baskets on the other end of the court.
An that’s just not what Denver wants if they’re to come away with the win in this one. The Nuggets have more depth and scoring off their bench, so that is something to pay attention to in this outing. As the Pistons have a really weak second unit, making it something the Nuggets must take advantage of if they’re to come out victors.
The Detroit Pistons weren’t able to pull out the win over a new looking Brooklyn Nets squad that seemed to have their number all game. Brooklyn just kept scoring at will, getting points whenever they chose on doing so.
Brook Lopez just went off, dropping 34 points on Andre Drummond. That really put the team in a hole late, as nobody was able to stop him, and from there Brooklyn just took off, winning the game 109-101.
But now the team has a chance at redemption in their next matchup with Denver Nuggets. Although Denver might be the more talented team, Detroit is the better defensive unit. An because of that, Detroit has got to use that to their advantage.
Big-men seem to be the Pistons kryptonite, so they’ve got to contain Jusuf Nurkic early and make sure he doesn’t get hot right from the get go. Tobias Harris, Andre Drummond, Marcus Morris and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, will all be tasked with keeping the offense afloat.
And they’ve got to do just that, if they’re to come out with the win. Because Denver has got way more offensive firepower then them, making it challenging to win this game if Detroit plans on matching them point for point.
So the Pistons have got to hang their hat on the defensive end of the floor, if they’re planning on come away victorious in this outing.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
The Detroit Pistons are picked to win this one, but look for Denver to come out on top. Detroit is just to injury riddled to come out winners in this matchup, because Denver has so much depth and talent from 1 through 15 on their roster.
However, the Pistons will stay close for much of the game but Denver will likely pull away with the win in the end.
