    NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

    Nuggets: Mixed start

    The Nuggets defense has looked vulnerable to start the season. They allowed still unorganized Lakers offense to run rampant on them and allowed them to pass 120 for the first time in the season. The Nuggets’ offense has at times not made up for the defensive lapses. In this way, the team has indeed a winning record but big strides are to be made when it comes to the both sides of the floor. Let us see if Michael Porter Jr’s return to form helps the team in the long run because so far they have allowed too many easy buckets.

    Nikola Jokic has done what he does best, dominate all spheres of the game and remaining the focal point in the Nuggets’ schemes. Jamal Murray’s performances haven’t been huge but he has done a decent job in keeping up the ante. Aaron Gordon has been inconsistent but gives great athleticism while Michael Porter Jr. has once agian showcased that when he is healthy, he is a force to be reckoned with. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has been doing his job well but a lot is going to depend upon Bones Hyland both as an injury cover for Murray and as a bench shooter.

    Thunder: They have done well

    After starting with a three-game losing streak, the Thunder has recovered the season and are on a four-game winning streak. These includes wins against Clippers and the Mavericks, two highly rated teams and things seems to have changed from last season. While the team showed immense defensive promise last seaason, they look even charged-up on offense. However, their over-dependence on Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and a lack of dependale second option has held them back.

    The lack of three-point shooting remains a major discussion when it comes to the Thunder but their defensive chops mean that they are able to fend off the oppostions in numerous ways. Josh Giddey has showcased promise but his offense needs a lot of fine-tuning. Luguentz Dort while being a solidn defender has been way too inconsistent from the deep. Can the Thunder keep beating the heavyweights?
