Atlanta Hawks vs Denver Nuggets (By: Khum)
Atlanta Hawks - Denver Nuggets
Last night I Paul Millsap got a fractured toe in the 3rd quarter, when the Nuggets were led by 4 points in Charlotte and his absence after that point arguably affected my pick on Denver, as they were coming back and had momentum on their side at that point.
I intend to cash back out of this situation, as the Nuggets are playing back to back games, tonight in Atlanta.
Millsap was rolling lately, scoring 16, 18, 6, 22 and 20 in the past 5 games.
Trey Liles will take his place in the starting five while Juancho Hernangomez and Mason plumlee will get more usage.
The swiss army knife Hernangomez seems to like playing against Atlanta, as he already scored 25 points against them, in their first encounter this season.
He also seems to be in good form, scoring 15, 14 and 15 in the past 3 games, above his average.
So if we also take note that Miles Plumlee, Taurean Prince and Omari Spellman will be missing from Atlanta and will make things easier for Denver in the paint, I think it's good value in waggering over on Hernangomez.
Will I have my money back?
Let's go green!
