The Nuggets won their last face-off against Miami in last year’s final NBA game at Ball Arena, where they escaped with a 124-119 win. Denver has been lights out across all statistics this season. They rank first in field goal (51%) and 3-point shooting (39. 3%), second in assists (28. 9), 10th in steals (7. 6), and sixth in points (117. 2) per game. Nikola Jokic has been a tremendous force this season, posting 24.
9 points, 11. 4 rebounds, and 10. 1 assists per game. If these numbers remain, he will join Oscar Robertson and Russell Westbrook as the only players to average a triple-double in one season. Entering this fixture, the Nuggets have a net scoring margin of +4. 3 points per game, which is good for third in the NBA. The offense has been terrific all season and they often maintain their rhythm despite integral players going in and out of the lineup.
