Denver Nuggets 25-11 (15-18-3 ATS)
The second team of the West shows a game similar to a roller coaster, because victories alternate with defeats. In the offseason, Michael Malone stood his ground to the end and kept almost all the leaders in the team, so it is not surprising to see his wards among the top clubs of the league. In the previous game, Denver beat Atlanta with a score of 123-115. The fight was saturated with spectacular moments. After such a confident victory, the Nuggets will want to develop their success.
Dallas Mavericks 23-13 (19-16-1 ATS)
Cowboys are now on the sixth line of the Western Conference. Kristaps Porzingis is injured and Ricky Carlyle’s team immediately starts to slow down and loses concentration. Dallas defeated Chicago in the previous game, while the team looked very confident (118-110). The Mavericks are striving to return to the top 5 and winning the next match can help them.
