Denver Nuggets head to Madison Square Garden to take on the New York Knicks on Thursday in New York, New York. Denver Nuggets are on a two-game losing streak after uncharacteristically having a bad game against the Sacramento Kings, losing in overtime and most recently losing to LeBron James and Anthony Davis against the LA Lakers in a battle for the best team in the Western Conference.
Denver Nuggets are coming into the game as the NBA's second-best team in the Western Conference, and have looked to have found what they had last season and are repeating it with the same formula. The Nuggets are led by All-Star Center Nikola Jokic, who is having another terrific season.
The New York Knicks are on a seven-game losing streak and are as bad as they come right now. Dicks are coming off of a 132 - 88 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks that saw Giannis Antetokounmpo absolutely dominate New York.
Any NBA fans know that the New York Knicks roster isn't filtered with a crazy amount of talent. However, I think even Knicks fans, even the most pessimistic ones, had more expectations than this. The Knicks have the worst offense in all the league, averaging 100.9 points per game, as well as the lowest assist average which is 19.6 assists per game. Nothing is going right offensively for the Knicks and as a result, nothing is going right in the wins column for the Knicks.
Denver is 8-9 ATS this season.
Nuggets are 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
Over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings
New York is 10-11 ATS this season.
Although the Knicks are at home, it would be a shock to see the Knicks win. It's a shock if the Knicks win any game this year as it's difficult to take the Knicks against any team. Especially when the team is a team like Denver, who is a huge favorite in this one. Final score prediction Denver Nuggets win 115 - 100.
