Who’s Playing

Dallas @ Denver

Current Records: Dallas 3-1; Denver 2-2

What to Know

The Denver Nuggets will take on the Dallas Mavericks at 10 p.m. ET on Friday at Ball Arena after having had a few days off. Dallas should still be riding high after a win, while the Nuggets will be looking to right the ship.

The game between Denver and the Utah Jazz on Tuesday was not particularly close, with Denver falling 122-110. Denver’s defeat came about despite a quality game from center Nikola Jokic, who had 24 points and six assists along with six rebounds.

Meanwhile, Dallas didn’t have too much breathing room in their matchup with the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday, but they still walked away with a 104-99 victory. Power forward Maxi Kleber and point guard Jalen Brunson were among the main playmakers for Dallas as the former posted a double-double on 12 points and ten boards in addition to six blocks and the latter had 19 points and five assists in addition to seven rebounds.

The Nuggets are the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are 0-2 against the spread when favored.

Denver is now 2-2 while the Mavericks sit at 3-1. A couple offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Denver comes into the contest boasting the highest field goal percentage in the league at 48.80%. On the other end of the spectrum, Dallas has only been able to knock down 41.80% percent of their shots, which is the third lowest field goal percentage in the league. We’ll see if Denver’s 7% advantage translates to a win.
