Neither team has anything to play for with them locked into their seeds, so you're betting a game with nothing but backups. The Denver Nuggets have been coasting over the last week and are losing their last 5 games by an average of 9.8 points. Still, we're getting a free point with the home team. Toss up game, give me the Nuggets at home.
