PHX vs DEN Dream11 Match Prediction – Fantasy NBA | Phoenix Suns vs Denver Nuggets | December 24, 2019

PHX vs DEN Dream11 Match Prediction

PHX vs DEN Dream11: If the form of both the team is anything, then it's a complete mismatch as the hottest team in the Western Conference, Denver Nuggets, face the team with the second-worst streak in the West, Phoenix Suns, at Talking Stick Resort Arena, in downtown Phoenix, Arizona, United States, on Tuesday morning.

Form and recent results:

Phoenix Suns:

  • All the optimism the Suns created around them with the strong start to the season, is now evaporating with each passing game, or better to say, with each negative result.
  • The Suns dropped the last game 126-139 at home to Houston Rockets and suffered their sixth straight game as a result.
  • In fact, the Suns have only two wins in the last 10 games and only three wins in the last 14 games coming into this game.
  • No wonder, the Suns have slipped out of the playoff positions and now sit at 11th on the Western Conference points table.

Denver Nuggets:

  • Arguably the hottest team in the West at the moment. What makes them click is their deep roster and the form of every player. They no longer depend on the incredible talent of Nikola Jokic, with the likes of Jamal Murray, with the likes of Will Barton, Paul Millsap, and Gary Harris all chipping in with impressive numbers.
  • The Nuggets beat the Los Angeles Lakers 104-128 in the last match and improved their regular-season record to 20-8.
