Denver Nuggets 38-17 are 2nd in the NBA Western Conference. Before the All-Star break, the team played against Los Angeles Lakers at home and lost after OT 116-120. Before this loss, the team of Mike Malone won 4 games in a row. The teams that they beat in that period were Portland Trail Blazers, Utah Jazz, Phoenix Suns and San Antonio Spurs. Jamal Murray is back and he was the most important player for Nuggets against Lakers with 32 points and 10 assists.
Nikola Jokić who was an All-Star scored 22 points, gave 6 assists and grabbed 11 rebounds but after 9-5 in the OT – LeBron James and his teammates won the game. However, we saw in that match that Nuggets definitely are among the top contenders to win the championship.
Oklahoma City Thunder 33-22 is 6th in the NBA Western Conference. No one expected that Thunder will be in the playoff spots at this time of the year after in the summer their biggest stars Paul George and Russell Westbrook left. For Westbrook, Oklahoma City got Chris Paul and he is leading the team right now and even was an All-Star.
Before the break, the team of Billy Donovan beat away from home New Orleans Pelicans 123-118. Danilo Gallinari was the highest-scoring play against Pelicans with 29 points. Chris Paul who was the only All-Star player from the team scored 14 points but also gave 12 assists.
In December these two teams played in Denver and Nuggets won that game 102-110. However, I think that with the home advantage Thunder will win the upcoming match and get sweet revenge for the loss in December. Free NBA picks: Oklahoma City Thunder Spread
