The Golden State Warriors and the Denver Nuggets do battle at the Pepsi Center tonight.
The Warriors are now just two wins away from history as they extended their unbeaten run to 14 games with a 106-94 win over the Bulls on Friday. Stephen Curry led the way with 27 points, Harrison Barnes added 20 points and Klay Thompson added 15 as the Warriors were neck and neck with the Bulls for most of the game before pulling away late with some excellent defense and 3-point shooting.

Meanwhile, the Nuggets have lost three of their last four games and will be eager to avoid a third straight loss after losing to the Suns in a 114-107 defeat on Friday. Emmanuel Mudiay led the team in scoring with 26 points, Gary Harris added 20 while Danilo Gallinari had 15, but the Nuggets just couldn't hold onto a 17-point lead once the Suns' Brandon Knight got going and finished the game with a career-high 38 points. Denver were on fire in the first half but got outscored 65-44 in a disappointing second half, dropping the Nuggets to 6-7 on the season and 3-3 at home.
In ATS trends, the Warriors are 7-1 ATS in their last eight road games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall, while the Nuggets are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a loss and 4-1 ATS in their last five games against a team above .600.
Head to head, the Warriors are just 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings overall but a healthy 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings in Denver.
This seems like a lot of points to be giving the Nuggets at home, but the Warriors have been on a mission all season and I just can't see them slipping up so close to making history. Take the Warriors to remain hot and win yet another game by double digits.
