Tuesday March 27 finds the Denver Nuggets arriving at Air Canada Center to face their host the Toronto Raptors. Denver plays Monday night in Philadelphia on the front side of a back to back set. The game prior, the Nuggets beat the Wizards. Conversely, the Raptors lost just their seventh home game this season to the LA Clippers. There third loss in five games.
Last season, the Raptors swept the Nuggets, but Denver took took the initial meeting this season. The Raptors hold the all-time record having bested the Nuggets in 26 of their 43 matches.
In the match versus Washington the Nuggets jumped on the Wizards from the tip building a 55-43 halftime lead.
Five Nuggets scored in double digits with Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray each scoring 25. Will Barton added 23 points. Devin Harris (10) and Torrey Craig (11) were the other double digit scorers.
With issues winning on the road all season the Nuggets recent success is a bit of a breakthrough. On the season Denver are 13-23 on the road with two of the wins being their last two games.
Gary Harris (knee soreness) has missed four games heading into Philly and is expected to remain out until Friday. Tyler Lydon (knee surgery) remains out with an unknown
Theoretically this should be an easy Raptors win with copious factors pointing toward Toronto. Denver will be playing on consecutive nights and aren’t a great road team.
Toronto has won 20 of their last 24 games, but three of those losses are recent (Thunder, Cavaliers, Clippers). The team is tired which is showing up in their regression recently on defense. DeMar DeRozan and Serge Ibaka in particular looks exhausted.
Oddly even in a loss the Raptors showcased a commitment to sharing the ball with seven players scoring in double digits.
Toronto’s magic number to clinch the east is six (any combination of Raptors wins and Celtics losses.)
For the first time since February 24 the Raptors will get consecutive days off Therefore it’s unlikely any players are rested for the Nuggets match.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction:
The Raptors aren’t happy they’ve lost games at home or lost this many in close proximity. They remain one of two teams who haven’t lost three in a row (Warriors). Still, Jamal Murray is Canadian and will be dialed in to put on a show at a home.
