The Denver Nuggets are short home favorites on Christmas evening against the Phoenix Suns. Both the Nuggets and Suns have started the season strong despite having some of their best players miss time with injuries as they each sit within striking distance of the top overall record in the Western Conference.

Two-time defending MVP Nikola Jokic has been incredible once again this season for the Nuggets as he currently has the fourth-shortest odds to win MVP again.

As a result, the Nuggets rank second in the NBA in Offensive Rating (117.3) entering play on Dec. 23 as they are on track to finish in the top 10 in Offensive Rating for the seventh straight season. However, their defense has struggled as they are 25th in Defensive Rating (115.5).

The Suns have remained steady despite the way they were embarrassed to end the playoffs at home and distractions off the court with ownership. Nonetheless, Devin Booker has led this team near the top of the West as they have the third-most efficient offense in the NBA (117.1).

While the Suns aren’t a top-five defense like they were last season, they rank a respectable 13th in Defensive Rating at 113.1 with Mikal Bridges and Deandre Ayton leading them on that end.
