Through 1 Quarter

The Denver Nuggets typically have all the answers at home, but the Philadelphia 76ers are posing a tough problem. After one quarter neither team has the matchup in the bag, but the 76ers lead 27-25.

Philadelphia has been led by point guard Tyrese Maxey, who so far has 11 points. Center Nikola Jokic has done his best for Denver, currently boasting 15 points (60% of their total) and two dimes in addition to three boards.

Who’s Playing

Philadelphia @ Denver

Current Records: Philadelphia 8-7; Denver 9-5

What to Know

The Philadelphia 76ers are staying on the road on Thursday to face off against the Denver Nuggets at 9 p.m. ET Nov. 18 at Ball Arena. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W.’

The 76ers took a serious blow against the Utah Jazz on Tuesday, falling 120-85. Philadelphia was down 97-66 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. One thing holding Philadelphia back was the mediocre play of small forward Furkan Korkmaz, who did not have his best game: he finished with only six points on 2-for-12 shooting in his 34 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, Denver came up short against the Dallas Mavericks on Monday, falling 111-101. Denver’s loss came about despite a quality game from center Nikola Jokic, who dropped a double-double on 35 points and 16 boards in addition to six assists.

Philadelphia is expected to lose this next one by 7.5. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past five games, so buyers beware.

Philadelphia is now 8-7 while the Nuggets sit at 9-5. The 76ers are 2-4 after losses this season, Denver 2-2.
