Denver has shrugged off a 1–4 start to go 11–5 since and that’s in spite losing two of its three most recent games.
The Nuggets had three full days off before losing to the Lakers on Thursday, 114–93. Nikola Jokic had his lowest scoring output of the season — just 13 point on 6-of-16 from the field and two free throw attempts.
Jamal Murray shot 7-of-17 and his five assists equalled his turnovers. Monte Morris was about the only guy who scored efficiently, going 7-for-10 off the bench for 16 points.
Gary Harris was ruled out for a game against the Pistons earlier in the week that was eventually postponed. He then missed the loss to the Lakers and his status here is unknown.
Be skeptical of Harris suiting up. He’s dealing with a muscle problem in the groin area. He has a history of injuries and the Nuggets will certainly play it safe with Harris to protect long-term interests.
The Kings crept up another spot out West with yet another win on Wednesday, 116–111 over Boston.
De’Aaron Fox and Harrison Barnes combined for 50 in the victory. Tyrese Haliburton scored 21 off the bench. Buddy Hield had 15 points and a valuable 11 rebounds with Richaun Holmes and Marvin Bagley (six each) slacking.
Five wins in six games has Sacramento surging toward the playoff picture in the West. It’s a game back of Houston in the standings, going into Friday’s schedule.
The next week will be pivotal for Sacramento. The Kings are trending upward but will face the Nuggets, Clippers and 76ers over their next three.
The game against the Clippers will be especially tough because its on the road and on the second night of a back-to-back, following this one. Then the Kings return home for a prolonged stretch.
That makes this game all the more important. Not only will it be important to set the Kings up to split a tough back-to-back, it will be used as a measuring stick against a quality Western Conference foe.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction: Denver in a close game.
Don’t be fooled by the win over Boston. The Celtics were short-handed without Kemba Walker, Marcus Smart and Payton Pritchard.
Fox won’t have nearly the advantage he had in that game against Tremont Waters and Carsen Edwards.
But the Kings will play hard and confidently. I’m looking for this game to go down to the wire but for Denver to earn a quality road win with Jokic making the difference in the final few minutes, as players of his stature so often do.
