The Golden State Warriors invade the Pepsi Center to take on the Denver Nuggets tonight.
The Warriors continued to pile on the wins with a 111-103 victory over the Heat on Monday for their seventh straight win overall and their 36th straight home win. Stephen Curry poured in 31 points, Draymond Green added 22 points, 12 rebounds and six assists while Klay Thompson had 17 points as the Warriors pulled away from a tight contest late to beat the Heat and improve to an amazing 36-2 on the season overall and 18-0 at home.

Meanwhile, the Nuggets are coming off their second win in three games after beating the Hornets by 95-92 on Sunday. Danilo Gallinari led the scoring with 27 points while Gary Harris chipped in with 12 points, but the big positive for the Nuggets was the play of Emmanuel Mudiay who returned from a 14-game absence with a sprained ankle to contribute 11 points, four rebounds and six assists in 39 minutes of action. With the win, Denver improves to 14-24 on the season and 6-11 at home.
In ATS trends, the Warriors are 19-7-1 ATS in their last 27 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a losing record, while the Nuggets are 4-1 ATS in their last five games against a team above .600 and 1-3-1 ATS in their last five home games.
Head to head, the Warriors are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings overall but a dominant 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings in Denver.
The Nuggets are clearly a better team with Mudiay back in the starting lineup, but like I've said so many times this season, there's just no backing against this Warriors team in the form they've shown all season.
