Denver Nuggets vs Phoenix Suns
Two teams at opposite ends of the Western Conference spectrum play Saturday night when the Denver Nuggets visit the Phoenix Suns. The recent history of the series has been as lopsided as the current standings indicate.
The Nuggets (28-12) will be looking for a third straight win this season over the Suns (10-33) and an 11th victory in 12 meetings. Another issue for the Suns: Point guard Devin Booker (24.8 points, 6.9 assists per game) did not practice Friday and was considered doubtful to play Saturday.
Denver will be led on the road by Nikola Jokic, who in his last six games has recorded three triple-doubles and three double-doubles, averaging 25.8 points, 12.8 rebounds and 8.5 assists.Read More...
