Analysis
The Nuggets are coming into this game not playing very well in their recent games as they have lost 3 of their last 4 games now. Their only win in that span was a 1 point win over the Mavericks on the road but they were also hindered in 3 of those games as they were missing their 2 best players in Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic. They returned to the court last night in their 2 point loss at home to the Pistons who are not a very good team, and now they are going on the road in a B2B game here. The Nuggets will be hungry for a bounce back win here after losing at home to the Pistons in their last game and even though they are on a B2B here where they had to travel to OKC for this game, their 2 best players have already missed a few games with injuries so they are well rested and healthy for this game. They are going up against a Thunder team that has not been playing very well in their recent games. They have lost their last 2 straight and 3 of their last 4 games. They have not been any better at home either as they have lost 3 of their last 4 games there as well. The Thunder have a good team with a lot of young talent and they have been improving a lot over the last season, but they are still getting way too much respect here against a healthy Nuggets team when the Thunder have not even been playing well recently. The Nuggets also have a win in OKC by 12 points earlier this season as well. The Nuggets are going to bounce back with a win here and cover the spread in this game.
