According to form, the Denver Nuggets won two quick games at home, albeit against the Lakers and Bulls, after losing three out of four during a stretch of road games and before losing their first two on a current six-game road trip.
The Nuggets got blown out in Dallas before losing another on on Wednesday to the Pelicans sans Anthony Davis. DeMarcus Cousins dropped 40 and 20 on a hapless Denver front line. Side note: there have been two 40/20 games this season and Boogie has both of them.
There aren’t many road matchups that we should expect the Nuggets to be competitive but this just might be one of them.
Orlando doesn’t have a big like Cousins to expose the absence of both Jokic and Millsap. In Mike Malone’s starting lineup, Kenneth Faried is a vastly undersized center. Mason Plumlee and Trey Lyles offer some bulk off the bench but they really slow down Denver’s offense.
Orlando has bounced back from its nine-game losing streak to win three out of its last five. But the schedule hasn’t been particularly difficult.
The Magic beat the Thunder, the Knicks without Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway Jr. and the Hawks in overtime. They lost in Charlotte and got blown out at home against the Warriors, too.
Orlando hasn’t looked very interested in playing much defense lately and the Nuggets haven’t ever been keen on locking anybody up, at least not in my lifetime. This game should be wide open and, frankly, a little carefree. The number probably can’t be high enough.
