We have been on a wild NBA run the last two weeks, just losing two NBA picks in that span. I am back with another pick I love tonight, fresh off an easy winner last night on the Raptors money line. I will be heading out to the mile-high to look at a matchup between the Golden State Warriors and the Denver Nuggets.

Denver Nuggets vs. Golden State Warriors Line Movement

The Warriors are in the midst of their coldest streak of the season, especially for a gambler, as they have been struggling badly against the spread. The Warriors have been missing the heartbeat of their team in Draymond Green. Green has been injured for the last few weeks, and that has killed this team on both sides of the basketball. The return of star guard Klay Thompson has not gone the way the warriors hoped it would start. Thompson is still a star in this league, but it has taken him some time to get his footing. The Warriors are also waiting on the return of big man James Wiseman who will make a large impact once he returns. This team is one of the favorites to currently win the NBA championship.

The Nuggets have been of the hottest teams in all of the NBA in the second half of the season, playing the NBA's weakest schedule post-all-star break. Nikola Jokic once again looks like an MVP, and their role players have really stepped up, including Aaron Gordon. This is one of the toughest teams in the NBA to knock off when they are playing at home. The Nuggets are also hopeful that stars Michael Porter Jr and Jamal Murray will return for a playoff push.

I am backing the Warriors tonight on the money line as I see this as a nice buy-low spot for the Warriors. This line is a bit off from my point of view due to the fact that the Warriors have not been playing great basketball the last few weeks. This is a very talented team despite not having Green and Wiseman at the moment. I think they match up pretty well here across the board with the Nuggets.

The Nuggets will be playing on a back-to-back tonight, so I expect some fatigue from a lineup that is not all that deep. They have a lot of players' status up in the air for tonight, including Bones Hyland, Will Barton, and Aaron Gordon. I expect some of these guys to go, but they won’t be near 100%, which can play a big factor in back-to-back games. This is a great line we are getting tonight on Golden State, so I am willing to attack it for this game. Steph Curry and Klay Thompson are due for a breakout night shooting the ball so look for those two to get hot tonight! Let’s keep things rolling on the hardwood.
