Golden State Warriors vs Denver Nuggets Preview

After conceding 48 points to influential duo Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown as the Boston Celtics were 105-87 winners overnight, Michael Malone's Denver Nuggets look to respond in the second of their back-to-back slate on Tuesday morning against Golden State. 

In team news, Nuggets' key shooting guard Jamal Murray (knee) is questionable after missing four straight games - so Facundo Campazzo could continue to start should he not pass the pre-game fitness tests.

Denver appeared well placed to record a ninth straight win after leading 79-65 late in the third quarter after Campazzo's three-pointer. However, Boston's fourth-quarter spoke for itself: outscoring their hosts 31-8, picking up the intensity and closing an unlikely victory out down the stretch. 

Michael Porter Jr led the Nuggets with 22 points, despite being just 1-of-12 from the three-point range. The third-year small forward confirmed he tweaked his hand post-game and said it did not impact his dwindling inefficiency from deep - so will naturally hope for better shooting splits against a weaker Warriors backline. 

Their rookie centre James Wiseman, last year's second pick, may miss the rest of the season after a meniscus tear (right knee) vs Houston last week. Kelly Oubre Jr (wrist) is doubtful, while Eric Paschall (hip) is sidelined. 

Golden State Warriors vs Denver Nuggets Betting Tips

ESPN's BPI is narrowly favouring the Warriors to protect home court (55.7%), splitting the season series ahead of their final meeting later this month. That's largely down to the Stephen Curry effect (29.9 PPG on 48.3 FG%), but even with Murray sidelined, I expect Denver to bounce back after a double-digit loss at home against Boston.
