Boston Celtics vs Denver Nuggets (By: Miyagi)
The Nuggets have the second-best record in the West and although they were expected to slow down at some point throughout the season and they had a mini-slump earlier this month, they bounced back and they are well in the race for the top spot just a win behind the Warriors.
The Nuggets rank top in the league in offensive efficiency (that's the actual efficiency per possession, not the total points) during their last 5 games, averaging 111 points per game during that span. The Celtics are also doing a great job at the same time as they rank among the top 5 teams in offensive efficiency in the last 5 games but they also rank among the worst 5 teams in defensive efficiency during that stretch.
The Celtics' defense has been really bad recently, they can't get stops and keep trading baskets with their opponents and that was against teams much more predictable (offensively) and easy to handle than the Nuggets. I am not sure that the Nuggets are the actual underdogs here but I am going to play it safe today thus I will go with their total points at this very small line of 108 points.
