These are two of the top 10 offenses in the NBA so you can expect fireworks tonight in Denver. The Twolves have struggled lately losing 4 of their last 5 games but those came against top teams like Suns, Mavericks and Celtics. On the other hand the Nuggets last wins were against weak teams like the Pacers and Thunder. Denver hasn't been profitable at home covering the spread only the 37% of the time. This should be a close game so I'm gonna take the Twolves with the points.
PICK: Timberwolves +3 (-110)
