The Pepsi Center is ready for the Denver Nuggets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves game. The home team has the hopes set to win this game, the race to the playoffs is not easy, and for the Nuggets there are not many options left. It will be an interesting game, the Timberwolves need to win but the winning streak at home for the Nuggets is solid.
Denver Nuggets: Until the last of sweat for the playoffs
The home team has to win all the games they have left, we are talking about 4 important games, tonight is one of the most important to sleep peacefully and continue the winning streak they have had. The victory against the Pacers on Tuesday was perfect but difficult to achieve, at home 107-104, with that game Denver Nuggets won an important game to add to the winning streak of 5 games at home (Lakers, Kings, Pistons, Bucks, Pacers ). The nuggets are unstoppable at home.
29 wins and 10 losses at the Pepsi Center, the team has been playing well at home. Currently, the Nuggets are No. 6 in the NBA offensive rankings, in addition to occupying the same place in the Points Per Game average league ranking with 110.2 points just above the Timberwolves. Hope never dies, the team is scoring all the necessary points to pave the way to the playoffs.
At home the Nuggets are dominant, 112.5 points on average, 48.3% field goal, 75.3% first throw, 37.20% three pointers, 11.08 offensive rebounds, 45.46 rebounds, and 27.31 assists. Teams on the road have always struggled to win at the Pepsi Center, this season they have left an average of 106.5 points against Denver.
Minnesota Timberwolves: They should do their best
The Timberwolves have more chances to reach the playoffs than the Nuggets, but the difference is small. To be honest, neither of them has a guaranteed place in the playoffs, to stay in the 8th position of the conference they have to wait for Pelicans or Thunder to lose the next games. So far the Timberwolves have won 2 (Hawks and Mavericks) from the last 7 games remaining, they must make sure to win the next four, including this against the Nuggets.
On the road Minnesota Timberwolves has had no luck, the team has lost 23 games and only 16 wins. In the last 8 games as visitors, 4 wins and 4 losses, the most important defeat was against the Spurs, but they also lost against the 76ers! Despite all the defeats on the road, the team is ranked No. 4 in the offensive efficiency ranking of the league.
107.7 points per game on average on the road, while the home teams score is 109.4 against the Timberwolves defense. The chances of winning this game are few. 47.4% field goald, and 35.8% three pointers. All statistics on the road for Minnesota Timberwolves are against them.
This game for me is 100% in favor of the Denver Nuggets, although earlier in the season the Timberwolves won at the Pepsi Center 112-104, but that game was in the past, after that victory the Timberwolves fell into a debacle with two losing streaks on the road, one of 4 games and another of 7 games. Denver is a more solid team, they have a good record at home as an offensive team and they are inspired to win all the remaining games of the season and expecting the other teams to lose some games.
