The Denver Nuggets are now in first position in the Western Conference, but a series of adverse results could jeopardize their position.
After four successive losses, the Nuggets went back to being winners in a match against the Detroit Pistons, who are last in the division. They are recovering from a difficult loss suffered at the hands of the Toronto Raptors, by a 110-125 score.
On road, Denver’s streak is also adverse. In the last five games they played, the Nuggets lost three of them. Additionally, they have a negative 16-17 record playing away from home. These numbers encourage you to wager on the home team in this Nuggets VS Knicks game.
Nikola Jokić is the team’s standard-bearer, and the high-scoring players in the Nuggets squad are their best weapons. So, with an average of 116.8 points per game, Denver has the seventh-best offense in the NBA. Although, their defense has increasing problems, as they have given up over 113 units per game, the 13th-best record in this category.

Regular Season Record: 41-30
- 1XBet Spread: +1.5
- 1XBet Moneyline: 2.22

The New York Knicks got back on track after giving three poor performances. The team is on a two-game winning streak, after scoring victories against the Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers. The game against the Trail Blazers featured Immanuel Quickley as the top scorer with 26 points and 10 rebounds.
Tom Thibodeau and his squad’s unfinished business going into today’s game, is their 19-6 home record in Manhattan. But, in the last five games they played on their court, they won all four of them.
New York only lost 105-112 against the Charlotte Hornets, a game they wasted a 16-unit lead at the end of the first half.
While the Nuggets and Knicks are in two different situations, the quality of players on the Denver squad can turn the match in their favour. But, the leverage New York has is in the consistency they’ve demonstrated this season.
Although they are not one of the 10 best offenses in the NBA and are only the 9th most relevant defense in the campaign, the Knicks won 12 out of their last 15 matches.
Furthermore, the best performance the New Yorkers ever gave, was on the road. The difficulties sinking the Denver Nuggets are why experts have predicted a close win for the Knicks.
