Phoenix Suns vs Denver Nuggets prediction

I considered the points with the Suns because they still have Beal and Durant who can will the Suns to victories. However, the Suns are coming off ugly losses to the Rockets and Thunder, and they're still down Booker and Nurkic. The Denver Nuggets are enjoying their best stretch of the season, and they've covered 4 of their last 5 games. The Nuggets are 24-5 SU at home this season. The Nuggets have also won 5 of the last 7 meetings against the Suns, which includes an 8 point win on the road back in December. The Suns have to get healthy. Give me the Nuggets in a home double-digit victory.
