On Friday, April 23rd the Denver Nuggets and Golden State Warriors will meet for the third and final time this season. The initial game occurred on January 14th with Denver winning by a score of 114-104. The second match just occurred on April 12th with the Warriors winning that match (116-107).
Last season, the squads played twice splitting the series. The Nuggets hold the all-time record between the squads with 97 victories in the team’s 180 meetings.
The Nuggets arrive with a four-game win streak in hand and winners of 12 of their last 14 matches. The most recent being a thrilling one-point victory in Portland.
Although Nikola Jokic didn’t register a double-double he still led the Nuggets with 25 points, nine rebounds, five assists, and a block.
All five starters reached double-figure scoring with Michael Porter Jr. scoring 17, Will Barton 14 while Aaron Gordon and Facundo Campazzo chipped in with 14 points.
The fact Damian Lillard was back playing and Jusuf Nurkic was fired up to face his former team made the win that much sweeter.
Since Gordon was picked up at the deadline the Nuggets have lost just twice (Celtics, Warriors)
Monte Morris missed the last two games nursing a hamstring injury and is questionable for Friday. Jamal Murray (knee) is lost for the season.
Golden State Warriors

Kelly Oubre Jr. led the scoring against his former team with 24 while Jordan Poole also chipped in 22 points. Kent Bazemore remained in the starting lineup collecting 19 points while Andrew Wiggins also had a rough shooting night (5 of 20) with 14 points.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
While everyone assumed the Nuggets offense would take a hit once Murray went down they’ve surprised leading the league in points per game in those four matches (124.0).
Denver’s 111.7 opponent points during the same stretch might seem high but 137 points were scored in the double-overtime match. The more accurate opponent scoring is closer to 106.5 points in regulation.
With Steph cooling off in Washington he’s not likely to replicate that poor of a shooting night again but much like most clubs the Warriors don’t have a player capable of defending Jokic.
