The Denver Nuggets have played just one home game so far this season, so you know they're looking forward to this contest. There's value with Denver given that the Warriors played last night and Curry hurt his ankle (should be able to play here). However, the Warriors are of course the better team here and seem to be getting better on the offensive side. As long as Durant, Thompson and others continue to knock down shots, I'm afraid the Nuggets don't have enough firepower to keep up.
