Denver Nuggets's Latest Performance :
The Nuggets are coming off a hard-fought loss against the Bucks they are now on a two-game losing streak. The Nuggets blew a 17 point lead as they allow the Bucks to crawl back and take the game away from the Nuggets. Jamal Murray made his return to the starting line up as he hit 7-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers for 17 points, eight rebounds, nine assists, a block in a losing effort. The Nuggets must do a better job closing out games as they fell apart in the fourth quarter. The Nuggets as a whole had 17 turnovers that led to 31 points for the Bucks. The Nuggets are still one of the youngest team in the league so there is no surprise that they are facing a bit of a road bump. Going up against the Wolves will be a great opportunity for them to snap their two-game losing streak on the road against new-look Wolves. Jokic scored 20 points and grabbed five rebounds as he will have to be on his A-game next time out because he will be matched up against Towns.
Minnesota Timberwolves 's Latest Performance :
The Wolves will look to bounce back against the Nuggets after suffering their first loss in the post-Bulter era. Derrick Rose led Minnesota with 18 points. Karl-Anthony Towns had 15 points and 20 rebounds to give him his ninth double-double of the year. Robert Covington also had 15 points, going 4-for-8 from three. Dario Saric and Andrew Wiggins both scored 14. The Grizzlies defense continued to frustrate the Timberwolves, holding them to 8-of-19 (.421) shooting in the third quarter, and forcing five turnovers. Despite the loss, the Wolves are playing a new style of basketball they are moving the ball well and finding open shooters rather than playing isolation basketball like they had Jimmy Bulter on the squad. It will be interesting to see how Towns matches up with Jokic and with him being the focal point of the Wolves offense.
