NBA Prediction: Denver Nuggets – Golden State Warriors (25-12-2023)
The Nuggets will host the Warriors on Christmas, December 25th, at 2:30 PM ET. It will be the second time this season that the NBA champions have played the Warriors, the first meeting being in early November when the Nuggets won 108-105 at home.
It is worth noting that the Nuggets played without one of their most important players, Jamal Murray.
|NBA Betting Prediction: Denver Nuggets – Golden State Warriors: Denver Nuggets -4.5 @ 1.85
The Nuggets currently have 18 wins and ten losses. However, the numbers are quite different at home, with 11 wins and just two losses. Jamal Murray joined the team after recovering from an injury, and the team immediately started playing at a much higher level.
Denver will play three road games before the Warriors – against the Raptors, Nets, and Hornets. The opponents are not the strongest, so you shouldn't expect much fatigue.
The Warriors have been in a big hole for a while, losing six games in a row and 13 in 18 overall. There have been several injuries during this period, and now the Warriors are playing without the suspended Draymond Green, who will also be out on 25 December against the Nuggets.
The Golden State Warriors have won 3 consecutive games and are scheduled to play two home games against the Washington Wizards and the Portland Trail Blazers before facing the Denver Nuggets.
The Nuggets are one of the best teams at home, as evidenced by the start of this season and their 34-7 record last year.
The Mavericks were beaten 130-104 in their last game. With three games back on the road, the motivation to play in front of your home crowd on Christmas Day will not be lacking, so basketball betting enthusiasts are invited to try their luck at our selected basketball betting sites.
The Warriors were among the worst teams on the road at 11-30 last season. The result is less tragic this year, but the ratio is negative 6-8.
The Warriors will have a hard time without Draymond Green, as the Nuggets have Nikola Jokic on the front line and a solid Aaron Gordon. Michael Porter Jr. can also score under the basket and finish off successful possessions.
The Nuggets are certainly not lacking in height, so they will have a significant advantage here over the Warriors, who currently have a front line of Kevon Looney, Jonathan Kuminga, and Dario Saric.
Jamal Murray should play an important role, as he is back from injury and is playing under 30 minutes, but has scored 21 points in his last six games and is shooting 47.1% on three-pointers. In the previous 25 games played on Christmas Day, 16 of the teams playing at home have celebrated wins.
