Denver Nuggets Team News
Denver has found itself in big problems lately, and despite the great games of Nikola Jokic, the absence of Jamal Murray, who has been missing for a couple of weeks due to injury, was felt a lot. After a very difficult defeat against the Rockets away from home when they limited them to only 86 points, the Nuggets returned to the winning track, achieving two victories in two days. First, they defeated the Spurs with a dominant game by Jokic, who scored 39 points and added 11 rebounds and 9 assists. In order to rest Jokic and Gordon in the match against the Clippers. At the end of 3/4, the Clippers had an advantage of 11 points, but the Nuggets showed why the champions, on the wings of Jackson and DeAndre Jordan, achieved a turnaround and won. Namely, 4/4 won by 20 points. Jackson scored 35 points and had 13 assists while Jordan added 25 points and 13 rebounds.
Against the Rockets, they will be especially motivated to win. Jokic was excellent in both matches against the Rockets, but he couldn’t do it alone. Udoka decided to defend Jokic with a 1-on-1 game and to “let” him deliver while the defense on Denver’s shooters was very aggressive, especially on the playmakers.

Houston Rockets Team News
Ime Udoka with the Rockets continues to show that he is one of the best young coach in the NBA that his results with Boston are no coincidence and that he can produce great results with a realistically limited and young team like the Rockets. The Rockets lineup doesn’t have any big names, but they play real team basketball. Especially this season, the Turkish national team member Sengun and the combo guard Jaleen Green, who are the team’s leaders, stood out. Also, they strengthened the team with two experienced players, Brooks and Van Fleet, who were brought in primarily to strengthen the defensive quality in the back positions and defense on the perimeter.
The Rockets are one of the best defenses in the league, and that’s all because of their fantastic team defense and adjustment to the opponent. The problem for the Rockets in the match with the Nuggets will be high consumption, because less than 24 hours ago they played a match against the Mavericks in which they were defeated by 6 points, and Sengun was the most efficient with 31 points and 9 rebounds.

Denver Nuggets vs Houston Rockets Prediction
Jokic and company have unfinished business with the Rockets, who beat them twice this season and showed other teams how to play against the Nuggets. We believe that the Nuggets will be maximally focused and show the Rockets the difference in quality and achieve a sure victory. The home field and the crowd in Denver should be taken into account, as well as the fact that this is a back-to-back game for the Rockets.
