Are Washington Wizards in Real Trouble?

With 123.9 points allowed per game on average, the Wizards have the worst defense in the league (along with the Atlanta Hawks). In their last game before the NBA All-Star break, we saw them concede 133 points to the New Orleans Pelicans, while scoring 126.

It was their eighth straight loss, as well as their 45th defeat in the 2023-24 season. These guys aren’t doing well and based on the odds, they won’t improve their run on Thursday either. The Wizards are huge underdogs against the Nuggets and it’s not only because of their poor form.

It’s also because they have a very bad recent record against Denver. The Nuggets beat them in each of their last five duels. The only thing giving the Wizards some hope is that the Nuggets too are in bad form. However, these guys look more than capable of getting back onto the winning track.

Denver Nuggets Wanna Grab Their First Win in Almost Two Weeks

The Denver Nuggets lost their last three games, but they don’t seem to be worried much. First of all, those losses happened to three teams that are much, much better than their next opponent. Secondly, the Nuggets are still flying high in the standings.

Their record is 36-19, which is one of the best in the West. Further, Thursday’s game is played at Ball Arena, where the Nuggets are 21-5 this season. That’s the best home record in the entire conference.

On top of everything, the Nuggets should feel good about what’s coming next as their players have finally gotten some rest. This goes especially for Nikola Jokic who had to work extra hard to cover up for his injured teammates.

As a result, the Serbian center didn’t score much in his last couple of games. In fact, in his last two, we saw him score under 20 points each time. We’re 100% confident that will change on Thursday night.

Wizards vs. Nuggets Prediction

 The Nuggets are going to destroy the Wizards on Thursday. Not only are they going to cover the spread, but we feel as if they could completely blow their opponents out. We also expect to see a Nikola Jokic masterclass, who we think is guaranteed to score 20+. Actually, we think he might go over 30 this time.

Pick: Denver Nuggets -15
