The Nuggets are on a two game win streak and they will look to extend this streak at New York.

The Denver Nuggets will take on the other New York team after defeating the Brooklyn Nets in terrific fashion. After a well balanced scoring output which saw seven different Nuggets finish in double figures over the Nets, Denver will look to have a repeat performance on a back to back.

The Nuggets duo of stars in Jokic and Millsap were solid against the Nets, but they will have a tougher match up against the Knicks front court of Kanter and Porzingis. However, do not be surprised if Jokic and Millsap carry on their momentum after posting double doubles.

Gary Harris and Jamal Murray will have an advantage in the back court so look for them to be aggressive in looking for their shots.

Another player to watch out for is Mason Plumlee. Plumlee has had a great couple of games and has been very aggressive. Look for the Nuggets to ride his momentum and give the Knicks a heavy dose of Plumlee post ups and pick and rolls in this match up.

The Nuggets must be wary of the Knicks as well. They may not have Carmelo Anthony on their team, but they still have a lot of young talent and they did just defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Denver looks as if they are finally gelling and finding some type of chemistry between each other, but they must continue to build off this newfound chemistry in New York.  New York will come out looking to prove something and start off very aggressive. It is up to the Nuggets to contain them and find a way to fend them off, especially if they are up in the fourth quarter.

This will be a very interesting East vs West match up.
