Saturday's most exciting game will see the Nets meet the Nuggets.

Brooklyn Nets vs. Denver Nuggets Predictions

Having come into this game after four defeats the Nets are in real need of a win, especially given that Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving were on the court in three of those games. The Nuggets lost last night to the Jazz, the league's top seed, so both teams are looking for a W.

They've only met once this season and this is slated to be their final game against one another unless they meet in the Finals. That first game was won by the Nets but it a different Brooklyn side then with James Harden not arriving in that trade from Houston until the following day.

Nikola Jovic will be back on court tonight and looking to cement his status at the NBA MVP, something he is now a lock to do. The Nets will likely start both KD and Kyrie, although the aforementioned James Harden is still out with a hamstring injury.

The recent form tells us that the Nuggets should win but I'm leaning toward the Nets here. They've had the advantage of the rest, and it is an advantage at this stage of the season. Meanwhile are Nuggets are dealing with some injuries and coming in off the back-to-back. Take the Nets to cover, who win by an average of 6.3 points when they are favorites.
