After winning 5 straight at home, the Denver Nuggets (33-16) will play the Portland Trail Blazers (15-33) on February 2 at Ball Arena.
This season, the Nuggets have one of the greatest home records in the NBA. They will be optimistic about winning again here because they have a 19-4 record at the Ball Arena thus far. Their confidence should be reinforced by their dominance in this match. In the past ten confrontations, Denver has prevailed 8 times over Portland and they are meeting for the first time this season. The Thunder defeated Mike Malone’s team 105-100 last time out. A winning streak of 2 games was snapped by their 16th loss of the season. Although the Nuggets are scoring 114.7 points per game on average, their defense has been outstanding, as they have the 4th-best record, keeping teams to 110.8 points. Due to his absence from the OKC game, Nikola Jokic’s status for this encounter is questionable. Jamal Murray’s knee problem makes him doubtful as well.
The Trail Blazers are currently enjoying a winning streak and come into this game fresh off 2 wins. The Bucks and Sixers, the two teams with the highest rankings in the East, were the opponents in both victories. Their last game, they won 119-116 over the Bucks. The men of Chauncey Billups have not won back-to-back games in the last 2 months. They will want to match their greatest run of the season, since they have only won 3 straight once. The Blazers have a 15-33 record as of now after a difficult season. They have lost 26 of their games versus teams from the Western Conference. Portland, who average 108 points per game, will still be without Shaedon Sharpe and Moses Brown. Their defensive rating of 116.7 points surrendered per game puts them in 18th place in the NBA going into this contest.
