With Jokic and Murray out, can the Nuggets take down the Mavericks?

news

The Denver Nuggets are in a very unfortunate position as they head into their game against the Dallas Mavericks.

Both Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray have been ruled out for this game leaving the Nuggets to defend Luka Doncic and the rest of the Mavericks.

Point Guard Ish Smith of the Denver Nuggets is also sidelined, leaving them without the additional depth that they need throughout the game.

So, with so many injuries, is there any chance the Nuggets can actually come away with a win tonight? It’s a tough question but we’re going to do our best to answer it.

The most recent game for the Denver Nuggets was against the New York Knicks. This game resulted in a 106-103 loss. Prior to that, they beat the Chicago Bulls 126-103.

As a team, the Nuggets have a 9-5 record and are 3-2 over their last five games. This season, they were averaging 116.1 points per game before Jokic went down.

Considering they’re facing the Dallas Mavericks today, it might be a lot tougher for the Nuggets to put points on the board.

The Mavericks have an overall record of 8-6 this season but have gone 7-2 when playing at home. Luka Doncic is one of the best scorers in the league and is currently averaging 34.4 points per game.

Their ability to pair great offense with a stingy defense is the reason why this team has done so well. Today, they’ll have even better odds as they face the Nuggets without Jokic.
