Denver Nuggets vs Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder will welcome the Nuggets to Chesapeake Energy Arena as they are coming off a win against the Hornets while the Nuggets are coming off a win against the Magic. Game tips off at 8:00 PM ET.
Denver Nuggets's Latest Performance :
The Nuggets are coming off a nail-biter win over the Magic. They have now won two games in a row. After a great start to the season, the Nuggets has cooled down quite a bit however they are still a 1 1/2 games back for the top spot in the West so they have time to still turn it around. Millsap is coming off his best game as the Nuggets missing only two shots on 13 attempts. He is averaging 14 points as he has to work his way back from injury because Jokic can’t be the only player doing the scoring down low for the Nuggets. Jokic scoring is down significantly this month at just 14.4 points with averages of 9.8 boards, 7.0 dimes as he will face a hard challenge going up against Adams who can hold his ground against anyone in the league. For the Nuggets to win on the road Jokic has to play well on the offensive end because that would force the Thunder to call for a double and it will result to Jokic finding three-point shooters on the wings.
Oklahoma City Thunder's Latest Performance :
Thunder have been on a tear as they’ve won 12 of their last 14 games and they will be full of confidence they are coming off a win against the Hornets. They are playing their best basketball of the season Russell Westbrook is returning to form and they have found the perfect six man in Schroder who is coming off an impressive outing against the Warriors when he dropped 32 points against the Warriors. The Thunder have a great team with Westbrook leading the charge and George playing alongside him. After a slow start people were starting doubt if Westbrook is going to be able to take this team to the next level after winning the MVP. The Thunder are only a game behind Memphis for the top spot and have a very good chance of winning the West and with Roberson coming back soon the Thunder should be a very hard team to beat. Playing against the Nuggets would mean Adams will have to bring his A-game against Jokic he has been playing well for the Thunder both offensively and defensively.

The Thunder has figured out a winning solution and everyone on the team seems to be cooperating as you can see in the way they are playing everyone is buying into the system. Adams will shutdown Jokic offensively as that will be the difference maker in this game. It is hard for the Nuggets to win games if Jokic has a bad night.
