The Denver Nuggets and Oklahoma City Thunder meet Friday in NBA action at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.

The Denver Nuggets look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight games. The Denver Nuggets are averaging 110.4 points on 46.5 percent shooting and allowing 106.7 points on 45.7 percent shooting. Nikola Jokic is averaging 20.6 points and 10.2 rebounds while Jamal Murray is averaging 18.9 points and 4.8 assists. Will Barton is the third double-digit scorer and Paul Millsap is grabbing 5.9 rebounds. The Denver Nuggets are shooting 35.7 percent from beyond the arc and 77.7 percent from the free throw line. The Denver Nuggets are allowing 34.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.9 rebounds per game. The Denver Nuggets have won eight of their last 11 road games.

The Oklahoma City Thunder look for a win after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Oklahoma City Thunder are averaging 110.6 points on 47.1 percent shooting and allowing 108 points on 45.6 percent shooting. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 19.5 points and 6.1 rebounds while Danilo Gallinari is averaging 19.3 points and 2.3 assists. Dennis Schroder is the third double-digit scorer and Chris Paul is dishing 6.7 assists. The Oklahoma City Thunder are shooting 35.4 percent from beyond the arc and 80.4 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma City Thunder are allowing 34.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.1 rebounds per game. The Oklahoma City Thunder have split their last six home games.

The Nuggets are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Oklahoma City and 10-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings.

The Denver Nuggets are playing their best ball of the season, Jokic is in shape and they've won each of the last seven meetings against OKC. However, the Oklahoma City Thunder have been a consistent home team all season where they win by an average of 3.4 points, shoot 48.5 percent from the field and 36 percent from three. The Oklahoma City Thunder are also 25-8 ATS this season in the underdog role. I'll take OKC at home in this toss up contest.
