(38-42) Denver Nuggets vs. Dallas Mavericks (32-48)
The Nuggets have been eliminated and are now just playing out the string. That is not a great recipe for putting forth a maximum effort at Dallas on Tuesday.
Dallas has been in that mode for a while now and they are looking to see what next year’s roster should look like. The results have not been all that encouraging so far.
I have not been much of a fan of Denver this season and was surprised that they were able to stay in the race as long as they did. They were third in scoring and near the bottom on defense.
I don’t mind that style of play but I don’t see who they are building this team around. Nikola Jokic is a nice player but I don’t see him as your top guy. He has a very good all around game though.
A guy who really surprised this season was Gary Harris. He shot over 50% from the field and made more than 40% of his three pointers. It is the second year in a row that he has made significant gains.
The same cannot be said of Emmanuel Mudiay. I have never liked his game and you have to wonder if his shot will ever be good enough. He is not Rondo enough either defensively or as a distributor.
This is a dangerous spot for Denver as the math no longer gives them a shot. I can see a total letdown performance. Where is the pride going to come from.
Dallas seems to be caught in a tough spot. Owner Mark Cuban is not really the rebuild sort but this team is not exactly a contender, especially in the tough West. They look like they will be down a while.
Dirk might be on his last legs but I have always been a fan. I know he had some limitations in his prime but he was a star for a decade, maybe more. Unfortunately he just can’t do it anymore.
Harrison Barnes is earning his buck. Similar to Jokic above he is the leading scorer but not a star. At least he is proving to himself that he can be more than what he was with Golden State.
If they are going to stay a defense first team than Nerlens Noel might be a fit. He is no Tyson Chandler from the glory days though. Its not a skill thing, there’s just no edge to his game.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
Huge line move here as I think this one started DEN -5. However, with the elimination and a number of injured players who will likely not play it has moved to a pick.
At that number Dallas makes some sense.
