This is truly the tale of two teams that should be playing better than they are right now. The exception is Denver’s inadequacies come from injuries, while Dallas’ has been its sputtering offense that has recorded just 86, 87 and 88 points in its last three games.
With Nene and Afflalo expected to return Wednesday, all Denver has to do is get a little more production from Ty Lawson who is second on the team in scoring behind the injured Gallinari, and they should be able get the job done.
Free Pick: Denver 90, Dallas 85–The Nuggies outplayed Dallas in the opener and lead the league with 104.0 PPG. Dallas, despite its offensive woes, has been sound defensively, allowing an average of 91.1 points.
However, the Nuggets get it done at home with a good display of their dangerous offense.
