Tuesday, December 10th, 2019, finds the Denver Nuggets and Philadelphia 76ers tipping off for the second time with the 76ers taking the first meeting 100-97, November 8th.
Last season, the teams split their two meetings. The 76ers hold the all-time record having bested the Nuggets in 50 of their 89 contests.
The Nuggets have been mired in a bit of a funk lately losing four of their last five games. In their last game, Denver lost a closely fought battle versus the Brooklyn Nets 105-102.
Only three players reached double-digit scoring with star Nikola Jokic posting a double-double of 24 points and 11 rebounds with six assists.
Jamal Murray registered 21 points, five assists, and three rebounds while Jerami Grant offered help off the bench with 15 points.
Another four Nuggets chipped in with nine points each including Gary Harris, Will Barton, Paul Millsap, and Monte Morris.
In terms of individual team leaders, Jamal Murray leads in scoring (18.2 points) and steals (1.5) while Nikola Jokic tops the rebounds (10.1) and assists (6.1) categories. Paul Millsap captains the defense and also offers the best field goal percentage (47.7%) and blocks (0.8) category.
As a team, the Nuggets hold opponents to the fewest points (101.9) and are the best perimeter defenders (30.7%) in the league.
Unlike most teams in the Association, the Nuggets enter the match with no injuries to report.
The 76ers are one of three clubs (Heat, Celtics) who remain unbeaten on their home court with a 13th win on Sunday.
Joel Embiid (10 points) finally got on the scoreboard versus the Raptors but still hasn’t managed to offer up a typical game for him when facing Marc Gasol.
In the first meeting between these clubs Embiid posting a line of 19 points, 15 rebounds, two assists, and a block. His counterpart Jokic was equally impressive with 26 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals, and two blocks.
In the win over the Raptors, the 76ers dominated the match but had to hold off Toronto in the closing frame when they outscored Philly 36-24. Tobias Harris led the way scoring 26 points.
Five other 76ers reached double figures with rookie Matisse Thybulle delivering a career-best 20 points. Ben Simmons was arguably the best player on the hardwood delivering an impressive stat line of 16 points, nine assists and 11 rebounds.
Al Horford and James Ennis III each chipped in 11 points.
On the season, Joel Embiid is the team leader in scoring (21.9) and rebounds (12.5). Ben Simmons leads the team in assists (8.5), steals (2.3) and field goal percent (57.2%). Al Horford tops the blocks category with 1.0 per game.
Josh Richardson who missed the last six games nursing a sore hamstring. Zhaire Smith has a right lower-leg injury while Jonah Bolden is nursing an Achilles strain missing four and five games respectively. All three are expected to be out for the Nuggets match.
