Monday, November 29th, finds the Denver Nuggets facing the Miami Heat in their second and final regular-season meeting. In the initial match played in Denver on November 8th, Denver won 113-96 and things got chippy at game end.
Markieff Morris took an unnecessarily hard foul on Nikola Jokic who wasn’t willing to let bygones be bygones and retaliated. Jokic was suspended one game while each of Morris and Jimmy Butler was fined.
Marcus Morris, the twin of Markieff took to Twitter levying a subtle “noted” threat which got Jokic’s brothers so ticked they opened a Twitter account to respond and there were reports the Jokic brothers had purchased tickets and would be in Miami for this re-match.
The Nuggets last played Friday with a loss to the Bucks while the Heat defeated the Bulls on Saturday.
Last season the clubs played twice with the Nuggets winning both contests. The Heat holds the all-time record with 35 wins in 69 matches.
This revenge match between Jokic, Morris (and their brothers) may end up being just a lot of hot air since it’s unlikely Markieff plays while Joker could miss his fifth game due to an injured wrist.
The Nuggets’ top three offensive players being out is tough as Jokic joined Jamal Murray (ACL rehab) and Michael Porter Jr. (back) who were alerady sidelined then lost PJ Dozier to a torn ACL this week.
Denver has lost six in a row and is in desperate need of stopping the bleeding with their defense falling off a cliff during the losing streak.
Aaron Gordon and Will Barton tried to carry the load Friday versus the Bucks but needed more help on both sides of the floor. Gordon led the team with 18 points nine rebounds, three assists, and two steals.
Barton added 17 points, nine rebounds, four assists, and two steals. Monte Morris (15), Facundo Campazzo (16), Jeff Green (15), and Vlatko Cancar (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Jokic and rookie Bones Hyland (ankle) are questionable for Monday.
It was a game featuring the prior Raptors backcourt as Kyle Lowry led his Heat against DeMar DeRozan’s Bulls and Lowry got the better of his best friend on this night.
In fairness, the Bulls were playing the second game of a back-to-back and their third game in four nights while the Heat was finishing a four-game road trip and ninth of 11 away from home.
Miami is 8-4 against the current playoff seeds. The Staples Center back-to-back losses came with Butler injured and the other losses were splitting the Wizards home and home series and the Wolves which if we’re honest the Heat probably don’t view as an elite club.
It arguably pegs the Heat as the best Eastern team in that regard given how poorly the Nets have performed against the top clubs.
In the defeat of the Bulls, Lowry’s fingerprints were all over the win with 19 points, five rebounds, six assists, two steals, and three 3-pointers plus the winning bucket.
Gabe Vincent led the team with 20 points off the bench joining Jimmy Butler (18), Duncan Robinson (16), and Max Strus (13) as the other double-digit scorers.
Tyler Herro (illness) missed the match and is questionable for Monday as is Marcus Garrett (wrist). Morris (neck) and Victor Oladipo (knee) are out indefinitely.
