Denver Nuggets Team News

The Nuggets are in a much better position this season than last. Michael Porter Jr. is back so is Jamal Murray, the other two stars of this team who showed that the “mile-high team” can do much more than before. only a five-point margin in the win over the Thunders doesn’t show it, but anyone who watched the game could see it. Porter scored 22 Nikola Jokić’s 78th triple-double in his career, with 19 points, 16 rebounds, and 13 assists. Murray joined them with 16 points. It was not easy for Michael Malone’s team to outscore the opponent, but they found a recipe by shooting three-pointers, which ended with an impressive 53% percentage. The ball was moving quickly and accurately in the offensive zone and the Thunder defense could not control their attacks.

Portland Blazers Team News

Portland is a team that brought in some good reinforcements in the transfer window for a team built around Damian Lillard. Drafted Shaedon Sharpe and brought in Gary Payton II. The game so far shows that these were rational moves by the administration.

Chauncey Billups’ team in the match against the Lakers shot 37% from deep, they outplayed the opponent in rebounds, as well as in the number of points from the game. They played the defense perfectly, not allowing the Laker’s attack to achieve a shooting percentage higher than 18%. Lillard scored 41 points, while Grant contributed 16 points.

Denver Nuggets vs Portland Blazers Prediction

Last year’s games between these two teams can’t help us too much here. The difference between them was often drastic, with a large number of points separating them in the results. Denver has an advantage before this game and we can expect a game in which they will try to end the Blazers’ winning streak. If we take into account their previous matches and the number of points given on average per game here, we can expect that both teams do not exceed the total score of 230 points.
