Denver Nuggets vs Golden State Warriors prediction

The Golden State Warriors are coming off a nice gusty win over the Magic, but they've been a loser long term over the last few weeks, and they're hard to trust against top tier teams. The Denver Nuggets are consistently winning, and they've won 5 straight games against the Warriors, which includes a win on Christmas. I'd need more points to consider the Warriors in this spot. Only a bucket? I have to side with the Nuggets, the more consistent team at the moment.
