Keep an eye on:
Nikola Jokic: leads the Nuggets in points per game (26.0), rebounds per game (13.8), assists per game (8.1), steals per game (1.4), blocks per game (0.8) and field goal percentage (57.2). Do I really need to say more? He's the reigning MVP (and could be on the way to his second MVP) for a reason.
Washington’s Defense: has been ATROCIOUS. In losses to the Lakers, Blazers and Warriors, Washington has allowed 54.5 percent shooting from the field and 48.2 percent from THREE POINT RANGE. In addition, three players have put up BIG scoring performances during those three games. Lebron James dropped 50, Josh Hart scored a career high 44 points and Steph Curry celebrated his birthday early, posting 47 points. It's been ridiculous for a team that has been subpar defensively for most of the season. Show some pride as professionals, compete and play for one another.....
Bones Hyland: Bones comes into tonights game hot and full of confidence. He torched the Sixers for 21 points on 7-14 shooting from the field and 4-9 from deep off the bench in a Nuggets win. All four 3-pointers came in the fourth quarter at critical times to help propel Denver to victory. Washington can't afford to take the Nuggets rookie lightly, he's talented and fearless and is capable of delivering a knock out blow.
