Suns vs Nuggets Prediction | Analysis, odds, bet

One of the NBA games scheduled for tonight on January 1 will feature the Phoenix Suns and the Denver Nuggets, who will meet at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.

Phoenix Suns

The Suns are off to an exceptional start to this 2020/21 NBA season, being the second best team in the Western Conference with a 4-1 record, which fills fans who have not seen the team for a long time. Arizona standing out in the league.

They visit the Pepsi Center with a streak of three games without losing and in which they have been playing at a superlative level especially in defense, with their rivals being unable to exceed 100 points in those three wins while they scored more than 110 in two from them. Better still, two of those games were against very good teams like the Jazz and the Pelicans, which makes it very clear that the Phoenix team can give one or another surprise this year.

Although they average the lowest number of possessions per game so far at 97.8, it hardly matters if their defense is the third best in the league, allowing just 100.0 points per game on average.

Denver Nuggets

The Colorado team, unlike its rival for tonight, has disappointed in this start of the season, being the second to last in the Western Conference with a 1-3 record. The Nuggets made it to the conference finals in the 2019/20 season, so there are a lot of aspirations in them for this year but they haven’t managed to live up to expectations so far.

The Nuggets lost in their most recent meeting, which was a visit to the Sacramento Kings where they fell by a score of 125-115, re-adding in the loss column after having beaten the Houston Rockets at home 124-111 . Today they will return to their stadium and hope to continue their good walk there.

One of the main shortcomings of the Denver team at the start of the season has been their defense, which used to be one of their strengths. They are averaging 117.4 points per game, which is the worst average in the entire NBA.

Player plus powis

The young man Devin Booker He has been one of the most outstanding players for the Suns in these early days and has just had an outstanding performance against the Jazz, scoring 25 rebounds, catching 3 rebounds and distributing 7 assists.


Nikola Jokic he’s the lifeblood of Denver and is averaging monster numbers after just four games. The Serbian averages triple-double digits, with 24.5 points, 11.5 rebounds and 13.5 assists, leading the league in the latter statistic.

Forecast

The Suns’ offense has not been overwhelming like others in this regular season start, but they don’t need much when their defense is so solid. With the Nuggets being so permissive, it would not be surprising if the game is even or even the visitor manages to surprise.

The pair of falls to Sacramento, one of the alleged worst teams in the league, It shows that this cast from Denver is not playing to their full potential. Offensively there is not much to recriminate them, but if they fail to demonstrate that power they will have quite a bit of problems upon receiving these Suns that come on.
