The Nuggets are struggling without their All Star Nikola Jokic but managed to beat the Mavericks in the second game played in Dallas vs Mavericks. They'll now have an easier game against the short handed Pistons who are currently the worst team in the league and have lost 7 games in a row. Without Cunningham, Saddiq Bey and Stewart it's hard to believe the Pistons can keep this game close. Take the Nuggets to take care of business at home.
