This should be an exciting game as both teams love to get up and down the floor. Houston has established itself as a true threat to Golden State in the West while the Nuggets are looking to get to the playoffs and see what they really have.
Denver should be especially up for the chance to host the top team in the West. They know the altitude can be an equalizer for them. I would think especially for teams that like to run.
The All-Star break could not slow down the Rockets as they came out firing with a nice win over Minnesota. That makes for eleven wins in a row and 15 of 16.
Though it seems obvious if you are going to challenge the Rockets you have to be able to score, and score and score some more. They will give you chances but are confident they are better at it than you are.
James Harden showed no rust with 31 points and 9 assist in the win. The longer the Rockets run at the top of the West the more he has to be considered for MVP.
Or maybe they should have co-MVPs because whenever Chris Paul is in the lineup this team practically never loses. He was two assists shy of a triple double against the Timberwolves.
Clint Capela has become one of the best role players in the league. As long as he keeps working he will get some numbers – 25/12 against Minnesota on 10/11 from the field.
There is a lot to like about Denver and I think they are a little bit similar to Houston but the guys they are putting into those roles are just not as good or as experienced or both. I do think this team could be a threat in a first round playoff series, as long as it isn’t against Houston or Golden State.
It has taken longer than expected but players like Will Barton and Gary Harris are able to lead this team. I am not sure they have the ability to get to perennial All-Star status but they can score against most teams and have more confidence now that the team is winning more than losing.
Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic are special players for me, especially Jokic, who just notched a triple double in their win against San Antonio after the break. There are few players his size who are able to handle the ball and make decisions as well. You can’t judge him by the way he looks.

Free Houston Rockets vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
Even though there is no line in this one Houston is surely a favourite. They have only been an underdog 5 times all season long.
Despite their overall success they have only been a moneymaker on the road where they are 17-11 ATS.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Rockets -4.5
Both two times they have played the Nuggets this season they have been 8 point favourites. Expect that number to drop to half, making an easy cover.
