The Nuggets are coming off a 98-105 loss to Memphis on Sunday. Danilo Gallinari scored 24 points, Gary Harris 19, and Jameer Nelson 12, while Wilson Chandler added 14 points and six assists, and Nikola Jokic had 10 points and 11 rebounds. Will Barton added 11 points off the bench. As a matter of fact all five starters scored in double digits but the Nugs couldn’t help but lose a fourth consecutive home game to the Grizzlies and drop to 0-12 when scoring fewer than 100 points this regular season. Denver was outscored 21-13 on second-chance points and outrebounded 49-39. Collectively the Nuggets haven’t won two games in a row since late January (then again they haven’t lost two straight either), but individually Gary Harris is putting together his best season in three years in the league, with career-best points per game (14.2), rebounds (3.0), assists (2.5), field goal shooting (4.1%), and three-point shooting (43%). In NBA online betting odds trends for fans betting on NBA games, Denver is 5-0 ATS in the last five games when playing the Bulls, 8-3 SU in the last 11 games against the Bulls, and 3-5-1 ATS in the last nine games on the road against Chicago.
The Bulls are coming off a 117-99 win over the LeBron James-less Cavs on Saturday. Dwayne Wade was one rebound short of a triple-double with 20 points and 10 assists. Jimmy Butler did him one better with 18 points – 13 in the third quarter –, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists. Robin Lopez added 10 points and Nikola Mirotic had 14 points and 10 rebounds off the bench. Three other Chicago reserves scored in double figures. The game was tied nine times and the lead changed hands 10 times. The Bulls are 3-0 vs. the Cavs this season and have won their last four straight games. In other news, Chicago acquired Cameron Payne, Joffre Lauvergne, and Anthony Morrow from the Thunder on Thursday in exchange for Taj Gibson, Doug McDermott, and a 2018 second-round draft pick. The three practiced with the Bulls for the first time yesterday. Head coach Fred Hoiberg said Payne would have an increased role. The point guard is a crowded niche at this point, but Chicago has talked about waiving one of their five point guards. On the other hand, Michael Carter-Williams will miss his second straight game tonight, and his patellar tendinitis could change the Bulls’ plans to waive a guard. In NBA online betting odds trends for fans betting on NBA games, Chicago is 0-5 ATS in the last five games when playing the Nugs, 3-8 SU in the last 11 games against Denver, and 2-3-1 ATS in the last six games when playing at home versus the Nuggets.
