The 2022-23 NBA season goes on with a loaded 11-game Friday card and brings the Western Conference showdown from Chase Center in San Francisco, California, where the Denver Nuggets take on the reigning NBA champions, the Golden State Warriors. It’s a rematch of the 2022 first-round playoffs, and the Warriors look to extend their dominance over the Nuggets.
The Denver Nuggets visited the rebuilding Utah Jazz at the start of the 2022-23 season. Playing as firm 7-point favorites, the Nuggets suffered an ugly 123-102 defeat. It was a disastrous defensive performance, as Utah shot 50.6% from the field and 42.1% from beyond the arc while handing out 27 assists. On the other side, the Nuggets made 48.2% of their field goals and just 22.7% of their 3-pointers, finishing with 21 assists and a whopping 21 turnovers. After missing the entire 2021-22 season due to a knee injury, Jamal Murray accounted for 12 points and a couple of steals in his return to the floor.
The Golden State Warriors put on a show for their fans on the opening night, defeating LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers 123-109. After receiving their championship rings in the pregame ceremony, the Dubs dominated their divisional rivals, and Steph Curry led the way with 33 points, seven assists, six boards, and four steals.
The Warriors played well on both sides of the ball last Tuesday. Their defense was sharp, though the Dubs turned the ball over 18 times. It’s the first week of the season, and everybody needs time to get things, but the Nuggets might struggle a lot early because of Jamal Murray’s and Michael Porter’s return from injuries. Golden State is 10-3 ATS in its last 13 outings. The Warriors have gone 5-2 SU and ATS in their previous seven meetings with the Nuggets, who have covered the spread just five times in their last 17 encounters with the Western Conference.
