In a game from NBA, we will see Golden State Warriors at Denver Nuggets.
The Golden State Warriors are once again playing phenomenal basketball. They have won 4 games in a row and 7 of their last 8. The team is playing with a ton of confidence on offense as it is averaging 117.4 points per game on 48% shooting from the field and 38% from three. The Warriors are decent on defense, allowing 111.7 points per game. Steph Curry leads the team in scoring with 29.4 points per game, 5.2 rebounds and 5.6 assists.
The Nuggets are also on a roll at the moment behind the big play of their new star Nikola Jokic. He is averaging a double-double with 19.7 points, 10.2 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game. Offensively, they are not a very good side as they are averaging just 110.4 points per game on 46% shooting from the field but that is mainly because they are playing with slow pace. On the other side, they are one of the best teams on defense, allowing just 105.5 points per game.
Denver is playing very well at home this season and I expect this to continue against Golden State. Jokic will certainly punish them while the backcourt can at least keep quiet Curry and Thompson for a while.
