Reigning MVP Nikola Jokic led the way for the Denver Nuggets with a team high 35 points to go along with 16 rebounds and six assists in 37 minutes of action.

Philadelphia 76ers 

Without possibly four of their best players, the Philadelphia 76ers are in desperate need of putting up points against one of the NBA's best defensive teams. Philadelphia is 8-7 on the year riding a five game losing streak following a 120-85 road loss on Tuesday to the Utah Jazz last game out. The 76ers shot just 36 percent from the field and six of 29 from the 3-point line All Star and perennial MVP candidate Joel Embiid leads Philadelphia with a team high 21.4 points per game.

 

 

Prediction

Both teams will be coming in greatly handicapped by injuries, but the Denver Nuggets have the advantage because of Nikola Jokic's presence. Without the missing integral pieces in the Philadelphia 76ers' rotation, the Denver Nuggets could grind out yet another victory.

 

Tips: Denver Nuggets -8
