Golden State Warriors vs Denver Nuggets (11:40am)
The Warriors boast impressive defensive credentials this season, ranking among the NBA's top five in limiting 3-point accuracy, as opponents convert less than 35% of their long-range attempts. Additionally, Golden State secures a spot in the top 10 for both assists allowed and defensive rebound rate, allowing fewer than 13 second-chance points per game.On the flip side, Denver finds itself in the bottom five in the league for both free throw creation and free throw accuracy. Moreover, the Nuggets are averaging fewer than 12 successful 3-pointers per game.
While Denver is considered a formidable force at home, boasting one of the NBA's best home records, their performance against the spread on their own court is a less stellar 7-6-0. Notably, they failed to cover the spread against Golden State in a previous home encounter this season, and in the last six games in Denver, the Nuggets hold a 3-3-0 against the spread record versus Golden State.
The Warriors come into this matchup riding a five-game winning streak, showcasing their current status as one of the NBA's hottest teams. Although they have encountered road challenges with five losses in their last six away games, four of those defeats were decided by three points or fewer. This indicates the Warriors' ability to keep close contests on the road, making a strong case for taking them with the points in this game.
