Denver Nuggets Preview

New York Knicks vs Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets have played some terrific basketball this season. Despite missing stars like Michael Porter Jr. and Jamal Murray, they have stayed competitive, and are in contention to make the playoffs this year.

Their defense has been elite, which has helped them win many games this season. There is no doubt Nikola Jokic has been playing like an ace since the start of the campaign.

However, other players like Aaron Gordan, Austin Rivers and Jeff Green have also contributed massively, helping the team occupy sixth position in the West.

Against the Celtics, Jokic and co. will hope to grab a win and extend the team's winning streak to four games. However, their opponents have some great offensive players who can take the game away from them.

Key Player - Nikola Jokic

Nikola Jokic has continued elevating his game after winning the MVP award last season. He has been key to the Nuggets' success, and with their two other stars out, the team has relied on Jokic to carry them forward.

He is averaging 25.8 PPG, 13.6 RPG and 7.9 APG this season. Jokic will hope to continue his stellar form for the Nuggets, and help them get their 31st win of the season.

Denver Nuggets Predicted Lineup

G - Bones Hyland; G - Will Barton; F - Aaron Gordan; F - Jeff Green; C - Nikola Jokic.

Boston Celtics Preview

The Boston Celtics have played some impressive basketball recently, having won their last six games on the trot. They are currently seventh in the East with a 31-25 record on the season.

However, with the Charlotte Hornets and Brooklyn Nets lurking close, they cannot afford to drop many games. Coming into this game high on momentum augurs well for the Celtics's hopes against a Nuggets side that is tough to break down.

A win in this game will help them improve their record, and put pressure on the Toronto Raptors, who are one position ahead of the Celtics.

Key Player - Jayson Tatum

Jayson Tatum secured his third All-Star game spot this season. He has been terrific lately, and will look to continue his stellar form.

The youngster is averaging 25.5 PPG and 8.4 RPG this season. He is coming off a 19-point performance against the Brooklyn Nets, where he shot 63.6% from the field. Against the Nuggets, the Celtics will hope for a better scoring night from Tatum to boost their chances of a win.

Boston Celtics Predicted Lineup

G - Marcus Smart; G - Jaylen Brown; F - Jayson Tatum; F - Al Horford; C - Robert Williams III.
