The Denver Nuggets need a victory in order to snap a four-game losing streak. The Denver Nuggets are averaging 100.1 points on 43.2 percent shooting and allowing 105.3 points on 46.1 percent shooting. Danilo Gallinari is averaging 18.2 points and 6.4 rebounds while Will Barton is averaging 13.5 points and 1.9 assists.

The Nuggets have lost six of their last eight games when allowing 100 or more points. The Nuggets have split their last six home games. Kenneth Faried is questionable with an ankle injury.
The Spurs are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 vs. NBA Northwest. The Nuggets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. NBA Southwest. The Spurs are 23-8 ATS in the last 31 meetings in Denver.
The Spurs aren't having much trouble beating teams by double digits and they've crushed the Nuggets ATS over the years in Denver. I'll take San Antonio here, especially with Denver having a banged up Faried.
