This Tuesday, January 17, the Denver Nuggets will welcome the Portland Trail Blazers to the Ball Arena. The game is scheduled for 9:00 PM EST.
The Denver Nuggets are currently in first place in the Western Conference standings and come into this game with an incredible streak of 6 consecutive wins. The most recent victory was against Orlando where they won a close final score of 119-116 and their offense was led by Aaron Gordon with 25 points for the win and Nikola Jokic with 10 rebounds.
On offense they are averaging 117 points and shooting 50% from the floor. The offense is led by Nikola Jokic with his 24.7 points per game and 9.8 assists. The defense on the other hand allows 113 points per game and lets their opponents score 48% from the floor. They have had trouble lately stopping shots near the arc but their perimeter defense is pretty good.
On the other hand we have the Portland Trail Blazers who are in ninth place in the West standings and come into this game looking for their third consecutive victory. The most recent was against Dallas with a score of 140-123 where the offense was led by Damian Lillard with an astonishing 40 points for the win.
The Blazers are averaging 113 points per game and are shooting 47% from the floor while the defense is allowing 112 points and allowing their opponents to shoot 47% from the floor. Their defense is not the best, they have trouble defending shots from beyond the arc so they will have to improve this if they want to beat the Nuggets.
I would like to be optimistic and think that the Blazers will take the win but the Nuggets are playing very well, they are first place in the conference and they are playing at home.
I’m going with the Nuggets.
