The teams have met already twice this season with Denver winning and covering both head to head meetings home and away. Trend: Denver Nuggets are 7-2 ATS in their past nine meetings with the Golden St Warriors.
The Nuggets thus far is one of the streakiest teams in the league with already a trio win winning and losing streaks of at least three games or more. Their four game win streak was snapped on Monday in a 105-103 road loss at Utah as a +3 point underdog. After a sluggish start with an east coast trip to the start the season the Nuggets have righted the ship offensively as they have scored 100 or more points in eight of their past ten games.
Warriors head coach Mark Jackson has tried tirelessly to turn the Warriors into a respectable team. The road to respectfulness comes on defense the 2012-13 team could finally be reversing a negative trend for this franchise. They allow just 43% shooting on the season. If this team could somehow make the playoffs you will find one of the greater playoff home court advantages anywhere in this league. Credit the Warriors for a good start with missing center Andrew Bogut for much of the season and sixth man Brandon Rush who is out for the year with a knee injury. Stephen Curry has been healthy this season and leads the team with 18 points per game average in about 36 minutes of play.
