Free NBA Pick & Prediction Nuggets vs Pacers
The Nuggets have been dealing with accidental injuries to alot major players before the season started, however they took another big strike the other night, and it could deliver them into free fall over the next few weeks.
the particular NBA Odds for their sport against the Pacers Monday night time has them as +10 ½ underdogs, with a number of 199. Will Denver Colorado overcome a short bench this evening, or will they obtain run out of Indianapolis towards a pissed off Pacers team?
ty Lawson broke a rib a few nights ago, plus although there has been no recognized word released yet on his status tonight in indianapolis, I almost guarantee this individual won’t play.
He stated yesterday he was getting some pain just standing up, so trying to play a basketball game towards one of the most physical teams in the league seems unlikely this evening.
The Nuggets have been actively playing down two starters with regard to virtually the entire season, and now potentially without Lawson, their own offense is going to take a large dip.
Denver is currently 5 games out of the 8th place in the Western Conference along with 33 games to go, and with Lawson likely out for at least the immediate future, this particular injury might force the Nuggets to pack this in this season.
They currently own the Knicks’ draft , and another high lottery pick for them would be incredible to continue rebuilding this group.
All of this makes me think that even if there is a small opportunity Lawson could take a bunch of pain meds and put on a flak jacket to play tonight, the Nuggets will not risk their best player for a game against Indiana.
without having him, Randy Foye plus Evan Fournier are really going to have to step up in this sport.
Although I like both of their matchups, their scoring along with Wilson Chandler’s will not be close to enough to score on the Pacers. Denver already has no tall guys to matchup towards Roy Hibbert and jesse West, so… to jump shots against indianapolis is not a winning strategy.
The Nuggets have missed Lawson within four total games so far throughout this season, and in all those four, Denver is only hitting 91 ½ points for each game. However tonight towards Indiana’s defense, things might get even harder for the Nuggets offensively. Despite the fact that the Pacers played last night, their defense is still going to be very good at home. Indiana is probably not pleased about losing to the Magic last night, so anticipate a much better effort tonight.
we doubt the Pacers give up another 29 point one fourth like they did in the fourth quarter of yesterday’s game.
The Nuggets are going to have no inside presence in this game due to going up against the Pacers, and with a much smaller sized front court, and a bumped up back court, the particular Pacers will not only outrebound the Nuggets, but they will slow the game down enough to where neither team will certainly score a lot.
I don’t believe in either team to cover for our NBA picks, but I do think this might be an ugly game as both are ready for the All Star crack.
NBA Pick: UNDER 199
