Denver is still at the top of the Western Conference standings. They can stay there too if they can take care of business in spots like this.
Miami is one of the more inconsistent teams in the NBA. They have enough talent that they should easily be in the mix in the Eastern Conference playoff race and are at the top of the Southeast Division, by a hair.
The Nuggets are on another good run having won 5 in a row and 8 of 10. They also got Gary Harris back on New Year’s day and have been working back into the fold. .
So far Harris has been coming off the bench but you have to wonder if that will stick. It does give them a scorer they can rely on but he was a nice duo with Jamal Murray to start the season.
Speaking of Murray he used the time with Harris out to put up some really big games. He is still a bit streaky with his shot but he has seen his usage go up and production has followed in turn.
Nikla Jokic will have a stiff test in this one against Hassan Whiteside. He is one of the most productive centers in the league and does it with savvy compared to athleticism. It is an interesting battle.
Denver is still missing Will Barton but it has not been holding them back much lately. Another wing would help against Miami though.
Miami has been playing good ball of late but they had a surprise loss at Atlanta in their last game. They lost by 24 to the Hawks, who many think is the worst team in the league.
Hassan Whiteside had another one of his puzzling performances against the Hawks. In three of the last four he has scored under 10 points and they need him to be better than that.
The Heat are strong on the perimeter even with Goran Dragic not in the lineup. It seems like every other week another wing steps forward. This week it is Derrick Jones Jr., a rather unlikely burgeoning NBA player. Who is a good athlete.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
This is a hard one to call, I can see either side being a small favourite.
It is all going to come down to that matchup in the middle. If one side dominates there it will lead to outright victory and a cover.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nuggets ATS
I am going to back the better team in this one and bank of the savvy Jokovic outplaying Whiteside.
