Thursday, March 16th, the Denver Nuggets and Detroit Pistons play for the second and final time this season. Detroit was one of just five teams who defeated Denver at Ball Arena taking the November 22nd match 110-108.
The Pistons hold the all-time record having bested the Nuggets in 52 of their 96 meetings. Last season the squads played twice with Denver winning both contests over the Pistons.
*Editor’s Note: Statistics and rankings are current as of this writing, on Wednesday, February 15th,. Numbers may vary slightly entering games on Thursday, March 16th.
For the first time this season, the Nuggets have lost four games in a row. Head coach Michael Malone spoke of the team being far too comfortable and although he wasn’t displaying any anger essentially called out his team for being soft.
“Right now we’re just in chill mode, and you can’t be in chill mode with 13 games to go in the season,” Nuggets coach Michael Malone said. “We’ve got to try to find a way to get our swagger back.”
On the positive side, Denver possesses the best offense in the league highlighted by scoring 116.8 points per game ranking seventh. Denver is shooting the best field goal percentage of 50.8% and the second-best perimeter efficiency of 38.7%.
To be sure, with each update of the defensive stats the Nuggets are regressing. To that end, Denver allows opponents to score 112.7 points per game which ranks 15th while limiting foes to 47.9% from the field and 34.6% from deep ranking 23rd and fifth respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Zeke Nnaji PF (OUT—shoulder)
- Collin Gillespie PG (OUT—leg fracture)
For now, Jamal Murray isn’t on the list, but he was definitely favoring his leg in Toronto and I wonder if Malone will use this stop to get Murray some extra rest.
Scan the injury report and it’s obvious the Pistons aren’t just tanking they’re doing everything possible to ensure they remain in the cellar.
Comparatively, Pistons’ opponents average 118.6 points per game ranking 29th while limiting foes to 49% from the field and 36.1% from deep ranking 27th and 17th respectively.
On the negative side, offensively, the Pistons score 111.2 points per game which ranks 28th. From an efficiency perspective, the Pistons shoot 45.4% from the field and 35.1% from the perimeter ranking 28th and 21st respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Alec Burks, SG (questionable —foot)
- Bojan Bogdanovic, SF (doubtful —Achilles)
- Jaden Ivey, SG (questionable —quarantine)
- Marvin Bagley III, PF (OUT indefinitely—ankle)
- Cade Cunningham, PG (OUT for season —shin-left tibia stress fractures)
- Isaiah Stewart, PF (OUT indefinitely —hip)
- Isaiah Livers, SF (questionable —hip)
- Hamidou Diallo, SG (OUT for season—ankle)

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
Michael Malone is a smart man and while he’s been hinting (as have I) about the lack of urgency for several games the timing of his recent comments conveniently occurs as they face a tanking team who struggles offensively.
Regardless of who dresses for the Nuggets, I expect the team to respond with a massive game featuring a huge points margin.
