DEN vs MIA Dream11: Denver Nuggets and Nikola Jokic host an in-form Miami Heat in the NBA 2019-20 regular season at Pepsi Center. Nuggets are 4-2 in the season and sit seventh in the Eastern Conference, while Heat have exceeded expectations as they lead the Eastern Conference after a 5-1 start to the new season.
Nuggets are one of the favourites in the Western Conference. And it's not entirely because of Golden State Warriors' injury problems, for the Nuggets have a deep roster a star starting five led by superstar Nikola Jokic.
However, the Nuggets have lost twice in the last three games and need more consistency to improve their chances of winning the West.
Miami Heat, meanwhile, have done enough to be taken seriously. Following Philadelphia 76ers' (without Joel Embiid, for the full game) unexpected defeat to Phoenix Suns, Heat have taken over the east after two consecutive wins.
But it was the complete demolition of Houston Rockets which has brought them right into the mix. The win was so good, on either end, that Heat will struggle to emulate that level of performance, not even against the teams considered as relatively weak.

DEN vs MIA Dream11 teams:
Denver Nuggets clean-swept Mimi Heat last season, but this Miami team is some level up from the last season. They won't be easy to deal with for the Nuggets. Still, the height that the Nuggets boast and the familiarity in the roster all indicates towards a win for Nikola Jokic and Co.
