denver nuggets 114 vs chicago bulls 106

ANALYSIS

The Nuggets are the most efficient team in the league on offense. They lead the league in both FG% and 3-point FG%, but for some reason they’re only attempting 32 threes per game, 21st in the league. They’re currently on a 4-game winning streak and have won 6 of their last 7. Having Jamaal Murray and Michael Porter Jr. healthy this season for the first time since the bubble in Orlando has been a huge boost, and the Nuggets now sit in the standings as a top-4 team in the West. 

The new-look Bulls took the league by storm last season. They started 26-10 and DeMar DeRozan was an early MVP candidate. The second half of their season was a lot more tumultuous, and it culminated in a 4-1 loss in the first round of the playoffs to the Bucks. This season has started similarly to how last season ended. They’ve been hovering around .500 all season, and haven’t quite gotten the output from Derozan and Zach Lavene that they got last year as they’re both averaging fewer points so far this season.

Before they face off, the Nuggets will be at the Celtics on Friday night.
