The NBA is back in action today as the Denver Nuggets will clash with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Nuggets are heading into this game after a 120-116 in overtime defeat at home against the Lakers last Wednesday. And on the other side, Oklahoma City edged New Orleans 123-118 on the road in their most recent contest last Thursday.
Denver Nuggets Form
The Nuggets suffered an expected defeat in the game against the LeBron led Lakers. But that defeat did make any changes in the Northwest Division as they are still on the top spot, with 1.5 games lead over Utah.
As for the Western Conference playoff picture, the team is second, four games behind the Lakers for the top spot. The Nuggets are a good team and they will play an important role in the Western Conference playoffs.
On the offensive side of the game, the Nuggets score an average of 110.4 points per game on the year. Denver has 44.9 boards combined with 26.5 dimes a night. Also, the Nuggets are 5th in the league in scoring defence as they allow 106.7 points per contest this season.

The Thunder managed to get back to winning ways after they took down New Orleans on the road in their final game before the All-Star break. And now, the Thunder entered Thursday third in the Northwest Division race, five games behind the Nuggets. As for the Western Conference playoff picture, the team was sixth, nine games behind the conference-leading Lakers.
On the offensive side of the game, the Thunder score an average of 110.6 points per game on the year. OKC has 43.1 boards combined with 22 dimes a night. Also, they are 10th in the league in scoring defence as they allow 110 points per contest this season.
Both teams managed are playing well this season. Also, both sides will probably take part in the playoffs.
The Nuggets suffered an expected defeat in the game against the Lakers. Furthermore, the Nuggets expect to have Plumlee and Porter Jr. back for this contest as well. However, I believe that the Thunder is strong at home and that will win this game. Take Oklahoma in this one.
