The Denver Nuggets will try to get their ninth consecutive win this Friday night when they host the Indiana Pacers at Ball Arena. The Pacers will try to snap out of a five-game losing streak and get payback for that game in November, where they lost 122-119.
The Nuggets are in a great spot right now, leading the Western Conference by only half game above Memphis Grizzlies. They are on a current win streak of eight games after beating the Timberwolves. Nikola Jokic led the team with 31 points and 11 rebounds for the win, he is playing great this season with an average of 25.1 points per game, 11 rebounds, and 9.9 assists.
Denver is playing well on defense too, but that is of course because of their powerful offense that is first in the NBA shooting 51% from the floor and 39% from the three-point line.
The Indiana Pacers showed improvement at the half of the season, but now they are on a five-game losing streak and ranked ninth in the Eastern Conference. One important reason for this losing streak is the absence of Tyrese Haliburton in the last four games, and they will not have him for at least another week. The Pacer’s most recent match was against Oklahoma this Wednesday, where the rookie point guard Andrew Nembhard led the team with 18 points and seven rebounds.
It would be interesting to see the Indiana Pacers turn it around in this Friday night game, and even more so against a team with such a winning streak. But things are getting pretty tough considering their performance lately and even more with the absence of Haliburton.
