The surging Denver Nuggets will look to pick up a huge road win this Friday, as they take on the slightly disappointing New Orleans Pelicans who will look to defend home court and inch closer to the .500 mark.
The Denver Nuggets got blown off the court against a Toronto Raptors team last time who came into that contest surprisingly focused despite all the news and rumors that Kyle Lowry was going to be moved possibly during the game. The Nuggets will not only look to avenge that loss in this game, but also their loss to this very Pelicans team 3 games back, as they dropped that game to New Orleans by a score of 113-108.
The biggest news for the Nuggets after the trade deadline yesterday was the fact they were able to pick up Aaron Gordon from the Orlando Magic and I feel that was a great move for this team who is getting hot at the right time and who looks a legit dark horse for the championship this year. The Nuggets also were able to pick up Javale McGee who looks to be a solid back up option at the 5 for Nikola Jokic who has held an MVP type pace in terms of production all year long.
New Orleans Pelicans
The New Orleans Pelicans have been about as inconsistent as you would expect for a team that is led by a 20 year old, but after last year it felt like this team really was going to have a break0out type of season here in 2021, but it just has not materialized for the young squad.
Zion Williamson continues to put up fantastic numbers on unreal efficiency and plenty of the other guys on the team are contributing plenty, but the main problem has not been putting the ball in the net, but rather what is going on at the other end of the floor.
The New Orleans Pelicans are giving up 115.1 points per game and their defense was bad in their last game against the Lakers as well despite picking up the victory, as they allowed the Lebronless Lakers to put up 111 points.
It remains to be seen how the New Orleans Pelicans management and coaching staff will be able to fix the lack of defense in ”The Big Easy”, but it will be hard to take this team seriously as a contender until they do.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. New Orleans Pelicans NBA Prediction:
I think the Nuggets can avenge that loss just a few days ago and cover the current two point spread, as I believe you will see quite a bit more urgency from the Nuggets off of that shock loss to Toronto.
