Tonight the Denver Nuggets will take on the Phoenix Suns at home. The Nuggets are coming off of a tough loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, and lost the last time out to the Suns. The Suns won that game by 11 and Markieff Morris had a huge game. The teams come into this one with identical records at 14-10. Tonights game is going to be a good one, but the Nuggets might end up with another loss on the home stand.
The Suns have won 5 of their last 6 and are scoring at will lately. They are constantly scoring in the 100’s and are deadly from beyond the arc. Although they are coming off of a loss, they are still a dangerous team. The Suns are led by point-guard Eric Bledsoe. Bledsoe is averaging 19 points per game and 6 assists. He is having a break out season since he has finally be given the opportunity to play. It will be fun to watch Bledsoe and Ty Lawson go up against each other as they both are playing at a high level this season.
Speaking of Ty Lawson, he will need to step up once again for the Nuggets to win. He is over his hamstring injury and he will need to bring it like he did last time against the Suns where he had 29 points. Also needing to step up again is Wilson Chandler. He has been playing great lately, but the Nuggets will need him to continue his hot play.
Something that has been missing for the Nuggets this season has been 3 point shooting. The Nuggs will need to shoot out the lights to keep pace with the Suns, and a player who can help with that is Evan Fournier. Fournier, who has not been part of the rotation of late, will look to make a difference when he is on the floor. The Nuggets will need all the help they can get from three point land, especially with the suspension of Jordan Hamilton.
The Nuggets and Suns will definitely give us a fun game to watch. The teams are both young, and can score a lot of points. It will be interesting to see how the Nuggs respond to the loss against the Thunder, and they know how important a win over the Suns would be. In my opinion I see the Nuggets losing this game at home by a score of 97-93. I think that the game with be back and forth all night, but I just see the Suns coming out with the win. You can follow along on the site and on twitter for updates.
