Denver Nuggets vs Boston Celtics/ NBA – Denver has been close to playoffs in the last two seasons but first Portland and Oklahoma disallowed them placement and then Minnesota in direct clash for playoffs. This season's start is promising and Nuggets, as they are now playing, are among the most serious favourites for the playoffs. Boston should also be a participant in the playoffs, and they are now arriving in Denver after a close defeat by Indiana.

Nuggets are play as reborn. Nine games and eight wins is their current effect, and when we add that they still have no defeats in their hall (5-0) then we can see that they are in great shape at the opening season. Coach Malone hopes that they have drawn lessons from mistakes that they have made in previous seasons and that they have drawn lessons from the mistakes they made in the previous seasons and that they have as a team “matured” for the playoffs. They did not change their team much, they ended big contracts with Faried and Chandler, leaving a “base” for the future – Murray, Harris, and Jokic.
It is difficult to list all the positive sides of Nuggets this season, because there are many of them. Compared to the last, they have significantly improved their defence (which was their worst segment in years back +) and now they receive below 102 points per match (they are third in the league) or almost 7 less compared to the previous season. Whenever they have kept their opponents under 100 points this season, they have won that match. Jokic continues with fantastic matches (his last match had 16 assists) and he is the first jumper, assistant and thief in the team.
Probable lineups Denver Nuggets: Murray, Harris, Craig, Millsap, Jokic
Boston is after nine matches played at the effect of 6-3, and they have 3 wins from 5 matches outside of their hall. They are coming Denver after a guest defeat from Pacers 101:102 (Oladipo has scored a three-pointer a few seconds before the end), aware of the fact that the host is in a series of four wins. Boston is a team that does not like to attack, and they prefer to give their best in defence (they are the best defensive team 2in t2he league and they only receive 99.8 points per game), so we will watch a clash between the first and third defensive team in this match.
The Celtics have six players who score double-digit points on average, and are led by Irving with 17.9. However, the main player of the team is Tatum, who progresses day by day and regardless of everything, the future of the club belongs to him. Boston has a real wild card on the bench, and that is Morris, who might be very important in defence against Millsap and Jokic, though they also have the center Horford, whose game is quite similar to the center Nuggets. Brown plays insufficiently recovered, while Hayward lacks constancy when their shot is in question.
Probable lineups Boston Celtics: Irving, Brown, Hayward, Tatum, Horford
Denver Nuggets vs Boston Celtics PICK
Denver is undefeated this season in their hall, and this will be the second out of five consecutive guest matches for Boston. Considering all that, it can be said that the Nuggets are mild favourites, so they are closer to the triumph in this match. When we add to that that they have a much more efficient attack than the Celtics, then we see why we expect Denver Nuggets to win.
