This will be Denver’s third game in four days. The Nuggets beat the Timberwolves by two points on Wednesday to snap a two-game losing streak but a longer pattern of losses lives on. Denver has struggled since starting 9–1.
It hosts the Orlando Magic, which is playing great basketball, on Friday night. I like the Magic to cover 7.5 in that game and I wonder how that will leave the Nuggets for this game, on the road.
The Thunder will be on the second night of its own back-to-back, however. The difference is that OKC hosts Charlotte on Friday and then stays right at home for this one. It’s actually a great opportunity for the Thunder to keep racking up wins with two quick ones at home in which it will be a big favorite in both.
The Nuggets have given indications that Isaiah Thomas expects to return to action some time in December. His timetable has been far from precise ever since this hip problem cropped up at the end of his Boston career but it sounds like he’s at least going to give it a go.
Oklahoma City walloped the Warriors on Wednesday and are right in the mix with several other eleven-win teams in the Western Conference in the first month of the season after starting 0–4.
The Thunder also got good news regarding its coveted rookie Hamidou Diallo, who took a scary fall and left the game on a stretcher but has been reassured his ankle injury isn’t serious. Regardless, he will be re-evaluated in seven to ten days so he’ll be inactive for this game.
Diallo, the early front-runner for the steal of the 2018 draft, has emerged as a legitimate scoring threat at the shooting guard position and he was getting plenty of playing time with an injury to Terrance Ferguson and a lingering sickness for Alex Abrines.
Abrines has been dealing with a virus and hasn’t been able to get back on the court. He was questionable on Wednesday, however, so Billy Donovan has to be hoping he’ll be ready to go by the weekend with his other two shooting guars out.
Steven Adams vs. Nikola Jokic will be a joy. Adams continues to be one of the most under-appreciated stars in the NBA with all he does on the interior for the Thunder. He’s going to have to step out against Joker though.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder NBA Prediction: OKC wins.
I just really like what’s going on in OKC these days. Losing Diallo hurts for the short-term but the team seems to have adapted the next-man-up mentality.
