Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets have been in red-hot form as they've won 10 of their last 11 games overall and they will be gunning for a fifth straight win after routing the Heat in a 100-88 road win on Wednesday. Michael Porter Jr led the team with 25 points on nine of 16 shooting, Aaron Gordon added 16 points with eight rebounds and four assists while Nikola Jokic tallied 12 points with 14 rebounds and six assists. As a team, the Nuggets shot 48 percent from the field and 11 of 33 from the 3-point line, but this win was more about their effort on the defensive end as they set the tone early by holding the Heat to just 19 points in the first quarter, but they really couldn't get any separation until the fourth quarter where they limited the Heat to just 17 points to earn the double digit road win in the end.

San Antonio Spurs

Meanwhile, the San Antonio Spurs have been in a rut as they've lost four of their last five games overall and they will be hoping to avoid a third straight loss after falling short to the Rockets in a 103-101 loss on Tuesday. Tre Jones led the team with 24 points and five assists, Jeremy Sochan added 21 points on nine of 14 shooting while Victor Wembenyama tallied 13 points with 10 rebounds and six assists. As a team, the Spurs shot 47 percent from the field and 11 of 36 from the 3-point line as they worked hard to claw their way to a narrow lead midway through the fourth quarter, only to allow the Rockets to take the game away with a pivotal 10-0 run to trail the rest of the way.

Denver Nuggets vs San Antonio Spurs prediction

The Nuggets are coming into this one with a full squad once again, while the Spurs are still missing Cedi Osman and Keldon Johnson. The Nuggets have been flying under the radar a bit lately, but they've been playing some of their best basketball of the season and they are obvious road favorites against this struggling Spurs squad who have little to play for at this stage of the season. The line is a little hefty, but the Nuggets should have little trouble running past this Spurs team in this spot.
