Denver Nuggets vs Oklahoma City Thunder (By: Umicuma)
Denver retained their well shape in the league, after they have got almost all players back in the roster, and after light drop in front of All Star weekend. They have made a run of four straight winning matches and team manage to kept their second position at the West, in front of tonight rival. Additionally, looking at the rivals which Nuggets had in the recent positive row, all those teams were currently out of the playoff positions, or on the edge of it. Games against Dallas, Los Angeles Clippers ( after the trade ) or Sacramento should not have the same wight, like when Colorado side clash with team like Oklahoma. Especially, considering that those two rivals are main opponents for the second place in the Conference ( resuming that Golden State will remain leaders till the finish of the regular).
Denver won their previous duel here, but Thunder was in worse condition that, at this moment. Oklahoma still have some drops, like defeat from Sacramento, after beating Utah in the over time, but generally there is positive difference for them since the first part of the season. While Jokic remain as Denver leader, it seems that there are a lot of players in the front, with return of Harris, Barton and now Isiah Thomas. That may slow down this team in the next games, and eventual make a issue when it comes to the role of each player in the lineup.
While Westbrook remain at his historic triple - double run in Oklahoma, it seems that George took full leader role in this season. With the support of Adams, who should be able to face Jokic in the paint, Thunder have offensive ability to make problems to Denver in this one. Both sides did improve their defensive play in this season, and it would be very interesting which of them should have better shooting percentage in this match. Oklahoma should have good chance to try hitting direct opponent at Colorado, putting the pressure at the host young squad at the remain of the season+
