Nuggets vs Heat Fantasy NBA: Denver Nuggets will come into this game after losing to the Warriors blowing away against Curry’s outrageous shooting night. Meanwhile, the Miami Heat will hit the floor after losing to the Suns in a game where none of their players could reach 20 points. A lineup related to DEN vs MIA Dream11 will be given by the end of the article.
Nuggets’ season: Denver has played some terrific basketball since March mostly because Nikola Jokic, their ace is now getting assistance from young Michael Porter Jr. and Jamal Murray. Nuggets look in terrific form and have a strong defensive and unit from Guard to Center spot. However, Murray’s torn ACL will keep him out of the action for some time, with duties increasing on other guards. They acquired Aaron Gordon during the trade deadline and bolstered their Forward position. They are in the 4th spot in the NBA Standings for Western Conference and can pose a threat to elite teams during NBA Playoffs.
Heat’s season: Miami was struggling in the initial parts of the season with no Jimmy Butler in the picture. When Jimmy healed from his injury, he took over the reins, and combining his talent with the all-around talent Bam Adebayo, he also receives support from the deep bench, and in the starting lineup, which has shifted across the season, he has gotten help from Duncan Robinson and Tyler Herro, who was shifted to the bench role recently. Miami plays tough and they are not an easy team to beat.
