Denver Nuggets vs Minnesota Timberwolves
NBA Regular Season
MIN vs DEN MATCH PREVIEW:
Denver Nuggets host Minnesota Timberwolves in NBA action on Friday morning (IST) at Pepsi Center, in Denver, Colorado.
Nuggets (48-33) won their last three games and would use their momentum to clinch yet another victory against visitors Timberwolves. They beat high-flying Indiana Pacers 107-104 in their last game. So the hosts are definitely capable of beating teams currently sitting above them in the table.
In home games this season, Nuggets have fared far better than they were expected. They have played 39 games at home, winning 29 and losing just 10 times in those games.
Minnesota Timberwolves (42-36), on the other hand, are 7th in Western Conference, but they are still not guaranteed a place in this season’s playoffs. This game is very crucial as the difference between both these teams is just one game. If Nuggets win this match, they will equal Wolves’ record for this season, and if visitors win, that would cement their place in the playoffs.
Timberwolves lost their last game 121-97 against Utah Jazz. The game saw Jazz shipping out points at a season-high 60.5 percent from the field.
The visitors have a negative record in away games this season. They have played 39 away games this season, winning 16 times, and losing 23 in those games. While in the last 10 games, Minnesota have split their results as they won five and losing five times during that run.
Timberwolves are the 2nd best team in NBA in terms of free throw percentage, turnovers per game, while they rank at fourth in field goal percentage.
So Nuggets need to be wary of their hosts in this match.
