Nuggets Look To Flex Muscle At Home

Posted by Craig Parsons on 4/21/2013 7:34:10 PM

The Denver Nuggets were the most dominant home team in the NBA this past online betting season. They will look to extend that dominance with home court advantage in the opening playoff round. The Nuggets won three-straight and eight of their final 10 regular season games to lock up the third spot in the standings, and will open at home against the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals. Denver won an incredible 38 of 41 home games this season, and they took three of four overall from the Warriors in the season series.

The Nuggets’ lone loss to Golden State came back in late November in the midst of a three-game road-losing streak. That was when Denver was just 8-8 on the season, but they have gone 49-17 since that defeat and it wasn’t until January that the team really came together and took shape. Ty Lawson averaged a team-high 16.7 points per game, and while he emerged as one of the better point guards in the game throughout the year, it’s somewhat surprising that he led this Nuggets’ team to the highest-scoring offense in the association. No sports betting team worked better as a unit than Denver, and that is why a team built without the type of big name stars that lead some of the best in the NBA was able to get it done.

The Warriors will have a tough time slowing the Nuggets down, especially in the high altitude where online sportsbook opponents had the toughest time slowing down the Denver offense. Golden State ranked third on the boards with an average of 45 rebounds per game and should be able to deal with the Nuggets’ size, but the Warriors ranked just 19th in the NBA because of their inconsistencies at the defensive end of the floor. Stephen Curry led the NBA’s seventh-ranked offense with 22.9 points per game and will be called upon to make the difference in this series, but it will be difficult going back and forth between the two environments and Curry will need his teammates to step up in order to prevent Denver from keying in on him.

Golden State is a good enough team to secure at least one or two wins in this series, but winning at Denver is a much different story. The Nuggets lost only three times at home all year, and if they fail to get the job done on the road, they should at the very least be able to win all four games at home. Curry will need to emerge as a superstar and the Warriors are going to need to play defense at a much higher level than they did during the regular season, but even then it would be a surprise if this series went past six games.
