NBA Betting Total:
The San Antonio Spurs are a pretty solid team this year, but they will need to bring their absolute best this Friday, as they take on the Denver Nuggets at the Ball Arena in Denver.
San Antonio Spurs
The playoffs might be slipping away for this Spurs team, as they have lost their last 4 games including a 10 point loss to this very Nuggets team in their last game.
DeMar DeRozan is as consistent as ever scoring at a rate of about 21 points per game, but he did not have a great game in the first half of this 2 game series, so he will need to have a solid bounce back performance in order to give the Spurs a chance at beating Denver.
Lonnie Walker will be out here due to injury along with Keita Bates-Diop and Trey Lyles, so the Spurs will be without a few guys who can make an impact on the court when healthy.
The Spurs have been blown out in their last two games, and I am sure Gregg Popovich is not happy with the effort being put forward by his team with three point shooting being a particular sore point shooting a combined 22% on average in their last two games which is simply not going to get the job done in the modern NBA.
The Denver Nuggets are absolutely flying at the moment picking up victories in all of their last 7 games with many of them coming in blow out fashion. A lot of why the Nuggets have been so successful this year is the play of their MVP level center Nikola Jokic putting up a stat line of 26/11/9 in terms of an overall average.
Jamal Murray has also been solid at the point scoring 21.3 points per game to go along with plenty of other stats including a very important 1.3 steals per game, as that is one of the areas of his game he is great in.
The Nuggets have also picked up Shaq Harrison on a two way contract to make up for some of the injuries that the Nuggets have had recently, so we will see if he ends up making any kind of an impact on this team.
Free San Antonio Spurs vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
I do not think the Spurs are going to come out here flat, as I think Gregg Popovich will have these guys ready to go. I think the Spur’s gameplan is going to be to slow this one down as much as possible with the Spurs needing to rely on their solid defense in order to hang with Denver here.
On the other side of things the Nuggets have a decent offense, but nothing where they are a team who is constantly looking to push the pace and hit on the break, so I can also see the Nuggets being held down in terms of the scoreboard even if they win this game comfortably.
That is pretty much what happened in the last game between these two, as it ended 106-96 and it would surprise me if the final score of this game is much different then that one.
