The Denver Nuggets look for a nice home victory to get a game above a .500 record. The Denver Nuggets are averaging 100.2 points on 43.5 percent shooting and allowing 103.9 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Danilo Gallinari is averaging 18 points and 5.5 rebounds while Will Barton is averaging 14.1 points and 1.9 assists.

The Denver Nuggets are allowing teams to shoot 38.8 percent from beyond the arc and are 3-5 this year when allowing 100-plus points. The good news for the Nuggets is that they’re averaging just 13.8 turnovers, one below league average. The Nuggets have won nine of their last 15 home games.
The Warriors are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Nuggets are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss. The Warriors are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Denver and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings overall.
The Nuggets are going to give it their all, as history is on the line and the game is on national TV. However, Denver doesn't have enough offense to hang with the Warriors. The Nuggets also allow teams to shoot a high, high percentage from three. Not good when playing Golden State. The Warriors roll.
