It’s a huge Western conference showdown that can go a long ways in deciding who makes the playoffs on Tuesday night in the big easy. The Denver Nuggets travel to New Orleans to take on the Pelicans.
Both teams come into this game having gone 1-1 in their last two games. This is the third meeting of the year between the two teams.
Each team won the previous match up on their opponents home floor.
The Denver Nuggets have really hit crunch time in their season. They come into this game two games back of the Portland Trail Blazers with only six games back.
The Nuggets are basically going to have to win out and get some help to have a chance to make the playoffs.
The Nuggets have struggled as of late losing three of their last four games. In their last game they were able to turn thing around winning over the Heat 116-113.
When the Nuggets have struggled as of late it’s because of the defensive side of the floor. Over the last five games they have given up 117.4 points per game and opponents are shooting 49 percent from the field.
For the Nuggets to win this game they need to find a way to slow down DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis (if he plays.)
The Nuggets like to push the pace of play but I think it would actually benefit them to slow down the pace of play.
They need to figure out the defense first and then the offense will come.
New Orleans Pelicans
Although the New Orleans Pelicans are out of the playoff hunt they really need to use these last few games of the season to their advantage.
The biggest problem the Pelicans have had as of late is DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis still don’t look comfortable playing with each other.
They need to use these last games to continue to build chemistry not only for the rest of this season but also the next few seasons.
The Pelicans have been at least getting more wins as of late. They have won three of their last five games. In their last game they did lose to the Bulls 117-110.
One thing to watch in this game is if Anthony Davis is able to play. He is questionable for Tuesday’s game with an ankle injury.
If he isn’t able to go they are going to need a huge game from DeMarcus Cousins.
