The San Antonio Spurs and Denver Nuggets meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Ball Arena.
The San Antonio Spurs need a win after losing eight of their last 10 games. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 110.5 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 112 points on 46.9 percent shooting. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 21 points and 4.4 rebounds while Dejounte Murray is averaging 15.7 points and seven rebounds. Derrick White is the third double-digit scorer and Keldon Johnson is dishing 1.8 assists. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 35.7 percent from beyond the arc and 78.5 percent from the free throw line. The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 37.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44 rebounds per game.
The Denver Nuggets look to build on their six-game winning streak. The Denver Nuggets are averaging 115.3 points on 48.8 percent shooting and allowing 110 points on 46.8 percent shooting. Nikola Jokic is averaging 26.3 points and 11 rebounds while Jamal Murray is averaging 21.3 points and 4.8 assists.

The Spurs are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Nuggets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Spurs last 6 overall. The over is 5-2 in Nuggets last 7 home games. The Spurs are 17-8 ATS in the last 25 meetings in Denver.
The Denver Nuggets are on the end of a back to back, but they didn't have to travel and didn't have to play guys into the ground in a comfortable win over the Pistons. The San Antonio Spurs are falling apart, which includes losing their last five games by an average of 7.6 points while allowing 51.1 percent shooting from the field. An explosive Nuggets offense could have a field day in this contest. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Nuggets at home.
