Denver was in action last night against Utah. The Nuggets got an easy win, mostly because the Jazz just shot terribly from the field. The Nuggets kept Donovan Mitchell in check, which is about 90 percent of the battle against Utah these days.
Nikola Jokic got ejected for a flagrant foul in the third quarter. That just means he’ll be a little fresher for this game on the back-to-back.
Jokic has just one more season after this one on that great rookie contract the Nuggets have him on after taking him in the middle of the second round a few years back. They’ll probably start talking about a contract extension after this season, unless they’ve started already.
The Nuggets hosted the Timberwolves a week ago and the T’Wolves came away with a road win. Jokic and Jamal Murray both had big games but Gary Harris sat out after taking a hard fall the game before. Harris will be available for this one.
The Nuggets still have to contend with Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns, who each dropped 25 points in that win a week ago.
The big difference in that game was turnovers, though. Denver shot well but turned it over 21 times. Minnesota shot worse from two and three but only lost it eight times. The T’Wolves also went 18-for-19 from the free throw line to take care of business.
Minnesota has reeled off four wins in row and is starting to take some initiative in that Northwest Division. It’s nice for Minnesota fans, who will get to experience postseason basketball for the first time since Sam Cassel and Latrell Sprewell, but suddenly the team has gone for a hotbed or young talent to one that is more and more veteran dominant without a clear picture of where it’s going when Jimmy Butler isn’t the same player anymore. With the way Thibs has been using him, that day may not be so far off.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction: Timberwolves win.
This is a revenge spot for the Nuggets and I’m tempted to take them. They have much better three-point shooting than Minnesota but they are also still weak on the road, despite some recent successes. Denver doesn’t have great defensive options to stop either Butler or Towns and Minnesota is playing well enough that I don’t think it’ll beat itself at home.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Over 214.5
The game in Denver went over without Gary Harris, who adds quite a bit to the Nuggets’ attack. I’ll say it goes over again.
