The Nuggets are currently out of the playoff picture, but you would not think that the way they are playing lately winning their last 4 games and 5 of their last 6.
While Denver has been winning in their 5 wins in 6 games only 1 has come against a team that is in the top 8 in their conference and that was facing a reeling Mavericks’ team that has lost 5 in a row.
The Heat are in the 4th spot in the Eastern Conference and while they are 6-4 in their last 10 games they have lost 2 of their last 3.
In their last games the Nuggets beat the Washington Wizards 116-100 and the Heat lost to the Toronto Raptors 112-104 in OT.
The reason the Nuggets have been winning is that their offense has been en fuego. They rank 15th in the league in scoring, but in their last 2 games they have scored 116 points in each and in their 4-game winning streak they have averaged 114.5 ppg.
All of the wins in the last 5 games for the Nuggets have come at home and on the road this season they are only 16-19.
What is even more impressive about the Nuggets’ streak is that they have done it without leading scorer Danilo Gallinari, who is out with an injury.
The bench has been especially solid as of late and in the win over the Wizards the Denver reserves totaled 75 points with 3 bench players going for 17 points apiece.
Denver needs to play solid on the offensive end of the court, as they only rank 20th in the league in opponents’ points allowed.
Earlier this season in Denver the Heat beat the Nuggets 98-95.
The Heat are led by their defense, which ranks 3rd in the league in opponents’ points allowed while they only rank 26th in scoring.
The defense is what killed the Heat in losing 2 of their last 3 games giving up 112 points and 114 points respectively.
Heat leading scorer Dwyane Wade missed the Toronto game with an injury and he is a question mark for this game. On top of that 2nd leading scorer Chris Bosh is still on the injured list and will not go in this game.
Joe Johnson and Luel Deng combined for 48 points in the loss to the Raptors and they will have to take up the scoring slack again if Wade is on the pine tonight.
This season the Heat are 21-12 at home and they have won their last 2 games in their house.
