Don’t sleep on the Nuggets impressive offensive improvement since the All Star Break! The numbers don’t lie. Denver ranks #2 in the NBA in points per possession on offense since the All Star Break –behind only Houston.
And the Nuggets rank among the top five teams in the NBA in net offensive/defensive efficiency since the break as well, right there with the likes of Golden State, Houston, Miami and San Antonio.
The Nuggets have hung 124 or more on their opponents in regulation five times in their last six ballgames. Wilson Chandler is back in the lineup, as is Danilo Gallinari, giving head coach Mike Malone his full nine man rotation moving forward. It’s surely worth noting that the Nuggets didn’t even shoot particularly well to hang 125 on Indiana in their last game, hitting 47% from the floor while missing 20 of their 27 three point shots. But their aggressiveness led to 43 free throw attempts, aggressiveness that’s primed to give New Orleans fits tonight!

But the Pelicans own offensive efficiency has improved by leaps and bounds in the weeks since DeMarcus Cousins arrived in the Big Easy. New Orleans remains a defensive mess, particularly on the perimeter where Alvin Gentry’s rotations have been in flux since the Cousins trade.
With two versatile big men and with Jrue Holiday showing some comfort level at the point guard position, feeding his bigs, the Pelicans are scoring points in bunches too, hanging 107+ four times in their last five games. Look for a ‘track meet’ type game in the Mile High altitude on Sunday, flying Over the total with room to spare. Take the Over.
