On Friday February 9, the Denver Nuggets arrive at the Toyota Center to face the host Houston Rockets Entering the game the Nuggets are on a three game win streak and have won six of their past eight with key wins over the Warriors, Thunder and Blazers.
Denver’s most recent game featured a through rout of the Charlotte Hornets.
Likewise the Rockets are rolling having won six straight and nine of ten. Although the Miami Heat pushed them in their last game Houston was able to buckle down at end of quarters and in the clutch to snare the easy victory.
Last season, the Rockets swept the Nuggets and took the initial game this season. The Rockets hold the all-time record having bested the Nuggets in 95 of their 180 matches.
The Nuggets have been one of the hottest teams in the Association in recent weeks and registered major victories over upper echelon squads. Jamal Murray and Gary Harris have been on fire.
The trade deadline move to send Emmanuel Mudiay out cements the fact the Nuggets see potential to move up the playoff ladder. Adding a veteran point guard in Devin Harris allows Mike Malone flexibility in this regard.
Mason Plumlee joins Paul Millsap on the injured reserve list. Plumlee is dealing with a right calf strain while Millsap is recovering from wrist surgery. Both will miss the game.
Through this point in the season James Harden is the top MVP candidate. Having been a bridesmaid for the award the past few seasons, this year the award is his to lose.
Houston are pushing for the top seed and assuming the Warriors beat Dallas on Thursday will enter the day a game back of first.
Injuries to core players have mounted in recent weeks with Eric Gordon, Trevor Ariza and Ryan Anderson all missing time. Gordon missed the game in Miami dealing with back tightness. Anderson was also held out with a right ankle sprain.
Ariza has missed the past three games due to a left hamstring injury. Gordon and Anderson are questionable for this match with Ariza likely out til February 7.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Houston Rockets NBA Prediction: Line is off
Presumably the line remains off as odds makers awaited trade deadline moves. For as much as the Nuggets are on fire their biggest weakness remains winning games on the road where they are 7-18. To wit, one of their two losses in the past eight came on the road in San Antonio.
Conversely the Rockets are stellar at home with a 20-6 record.
