NBA Odds: Wizards-Nuggets
|Time | Channel||9 p.m. ET | NBCS-DC|
The Wizards head to Denver on Thursday to take on the Nuggets in a matchup between two of the highest-scoring teams in the league.
The Nuggets are coming off of a win over the Trail Blazers in which All-Star center Nikola Jokic dropped 41 points in an MVP campaign that will not go away.
Washington has been playing much better basketball as of late, winning four of their last five games, including a win over the Lakers.
The Wizards have been scoring well as usual, but surprisingly, their defense has shown some fight. In Washington’s Feb. 20 win over Portland, it held Damian Lillard and Company to 35.9% shooting from the field.
Though the Wizards beat the Nuggets last time out, our PRO Report suggests that sharp action is siding with Denver. Let’s take a look.
