(15-14) New Orleans Pelicans vs. Denver Nuggets (15-13)
Friday, December 15 finds two Western Conference foes entering their ninth week of play in the 2017-18 regular season for the New Orleans Pelicans and Denver Nuggets.
This season the Pelicans and Mavericks would already play each other with the team splitting the first two matches. For the all-time series, the Denver Nuggets hold the all-time series record with 30-23 against the Denver Nuggets.
New Orleans Pelicans
The New Orleans Pelicans are looking to continue to jump past the .500 average as they have won three of the past five games. New Orleans has been great down this road game stretch as their only key loss was against the red-hot Houston Rockets. The Pelicans did return home for a one game series as they took care of the Bucks in their recent game.
In the 115-108 victory, it was a three way showdown between the Anthony Davis, E’Twaun Moore and DeMarcus Cousins as they all finished above twenty points in the game. Both Cousins and Davis recorded double doubles in the win.
New Orleans is inches away from being an elite team in the NBA, as with Davis and Cousins on the court is always a dangerous combo. Let’s see if the Pelicans are able to keep this momentum against Denver.
The Denver Nuggets are happy to be home as they were on a four game road trip which they split 2-2. In the wins, they were able to defeat the Detroit Pistons, and Orlando Magic. However they could not get wins against the Indiana Pacers and recently the Boston Celtics.
It was an extremely close game against the Boston Celtics as they did cover the spread but could not get the win. They might of won in my wallet but that will not mean anything the team who is looking to climb up the conference.
In the loss against the Celtics, the Nuggets were lead by two guards who went above and beyond. First, Gary Harris finished the game with a team high 36 points. Next, Jamal Murray was right behind him with his own 28 points.
