Nuggets Versus Rockets Game Preview
While your sportsbook may be getting a lot of wagers from the current college basketball season, the NBA is also quite popular, especially with the In-Season Tournament happening alongside the regular season.
The Denver Nuggets are at a great position, not just because they are playing at home. Their most recent game against the Los Angeles Clippers had us seeing how good their teamwork is. They won 113-104 against the Clippers, with Reggie Jackson dropping 35 points and 13 assists. Deandre Jordan showed off with another double-double with 21 points and 13 rebounds. Take note that this game was won without Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray, and Aaron Gordon – three of their top players.
The three are still questionable for the game against the Rockets, who will need to do better than their dismal 121-115 game against the Dallas Mavericks. Alperen Sengun is a beacon of hope for the team, if he can also produce similar numbers to his 31 points. The Rockets’ starters are all also scoring double figures, so they could pull off a win.
