What you need to know about the Nuggets
The Nuggets were able to grind out a solid victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday, winning 122-113. Denver’s center Nikola Jokic did his thing and posted a triple-double on 26 points, 18 rebounds, and 15 assists.
Jokic posted his 16th triple-double of the season on Tuesday night, and is now averaging a triple-double with per game averages of 25.1 points, 11.1 rebounds, and 10.0 assists. Jamal Murray has been on a recent tear, and is looking more and more like the player he was before tearing his ACL in 2021. The 25-year-old point guard is averaging 19.4 points, 5.7 assists, and 4.1 rebounds per game, and has scored 22 or more points in four straight contests.
What you need to know about the Warriors
Meanwhile, Golden State fought the good fight in their overtime contest against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 119-114. Point guard Stephen Curry put forth a good effort for the losing side as he shot 5-for-12 from beyond the arc and finished with a double-double on 29 points and ten boards.
Allowing an average of 118.0 points per game, Golden State hasn’t exactly asserted themselves on the defensive end. With this game falling on the second night of a road back-to-back, Golden State is expected to rest Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green.
