Indiana Pacers 27-15 are 5th in the NBA Eastern Conference. The team of Nate McMillan won their latest 4 matches in the league. That winning series started with victory away from home against Chicago Bulls 116-105. Then at home Packers beat Philadelphia 76ers 101-95 which was very impressive to allow less than 100 points from 76ers. In their last 2 games, they won twice against Minnesota Timberwolves. The first match was away from home and they won it 104-99.
Domantas Sabonis was the best player on the court that night with 29 points, 6 assists and 13 rebounds. Two days later they beat Timberwolves at home with only 2 points – 116-114. This time their key player was T.J. Warren with 28 points. Domantas Sabonis finished with only 8 points that match.
Denver Nuggets 29-12 are 2nd in the NBA Western Conference. The team of Mike Malone is in three matches winning streak. It all started with a very prestigious victory at home against Los Angeles Clippers 114-104. Seven Nuggets players scored 10 or more points in that game and this was the key for their win. Then again at home, they beat Charlotte Hornets 100-86.
Jamal Murray played less than 15 minutes and scored only 5 points but Hornets were awful on the offense and lost. Denver’s latest victory was away from home against Golden State Warriors 134-131 after OT. In this match, Nuggets were without Jamal Murray but Will Barton got an impressive game and finished with 31 points, 7 assists and 5 rebounds.
Indiana Pacers won 10 times and lost 10 times away from home. Denver Nuggets are 17-5 at Pepsi Center and they’re a slight favorite in the upcoming match. However, Jamal Murray is injured and without him, Nuggets will have a lot of problems against strong teams like Pacers. In the upcoming match, I expect to see points from both teams as they finished 124-116 in a Denver victory at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on January 2, 2020. Premium NBA picks: Over 211½
