It’s a nice slate of games on Sunday and this is a cross conference showdown.
The New York Knicks continue their road trip when they take on the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center. The Nuggets have won the last four games played between the two teams.
New York Knicks
The New York Knicks come into this game having won two games in a row but those need to be taken with a grain of salt going against the Sacramento Kings and the Golden State Warriors. Even against bad teams they were big underdogs in both of the games.
Before those two wins they had lost eight games in a row and the offense has been a big issue all season. On the season the Knicks are averaging only 101.1 points per game and they are going to have their hands full against a very good defense.
Even with the winning the last few games, the defense has been an issue giving up 114.2 points per game. Their defense has struggled to let opponents shoot 41.8 percent from deep. The Nuggets aren’t great at shooting from deep, and the Knicks can’t let the Nuggets shoot it from deep early.
On the other side of this matchup is the Denver Nuggets who have a good team, but they are really struggling coming into this game. Over their last seven games they only have two wins, but the hope is the home cooking will be good for this squad.
The Nuggets are playing on Saturday night, that is something that could hurt them but the hope is going against a bad team like the Knicks it won’t matter.
For the Nuggets it’s all about their defense. The offense is only averaging 106 points per game but the defense has made up for it giving up only 101 points per game.
In this game it’s all going to come down to how well the defense plays. If the defense can lock down against a bad offense that should spell good things.
One thing to watch in this game is if Paul Millsap is going to be to go. Millsap is questionable on Saturday and his status probably will be up in the air on Sunday.
