Denver Nuggets vs San Antonio Spurs Prediction comes ahead of their NBA regular season clash on Thursday, April 8th 2021, at the Ball Arena in Denver, Colorado. Read my match preview for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Denver Nuggets vs San Antonio Spurs Preview

After a 134-119 win over the Detroit Pistons overnight, Michael Malone's Denver team prepared for the first of a two-game set against San Antonio - likely without one of their leading scorers Dejounte Murray (15.7 PPG).

Nikola Jokic had 27 points on 13-of-16 shooting in 27 minutes with 11 assists and eight rebounds, on a night where SF duo Will Barton and Michael Porter Jr stepped up their scoring efforts without Jamal Murray (knee).  

Nonetheless, Malone was unhappy with their defence and stressed they could not afford to trade baskets against much stronger opposition in their cross-conference rivals here.

Murray (foot) missed just his second game of the regular season during San Antonio's double-digit defeat by the Cavaliers, where backcourt duo Darius Garland and Collin Sexton combined for 60 points and 12 assists. Who will step up in his absence and lessen the responsibilities from DeRozan-White? 

Denver Nuggets vs San Antonio Spurs Betting Tips

ESPN's BPI is firmly in the Nuggets favour (70.6%) to win this matchup, understandably so after their blowout victory overnight and the scoring depth they possess - even without the aforementioned Murray. 

Murray (foot) is listed as questionable on San Antonio's injury report. At the same time, Trey Lyles (ankle) and Lonnie Walker (wrist) both remain unavailable for selection in Gregg Popovich's rotation - important players that will be missed. 

Considering leading scorer DeMar DeRozan (21 PPG on 49.3 FG%) and PG Derrick White had rough games during their 125-101 loss to Cleveland on Tuesday, it's hard to guarantee they collectively bounce back here.
