Nuggets looking for better results in rematch vs. Memphis

Denver was unable to overcome a slow start on the road in Memphis on Monday, falling short 106-97 against the Grizzlies. Nikola Jokic finished with 23 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists for the Nuggets, who shot just 9-for-38 from 3-point range in the loss. Aaron Gordon finished with 15 points and 10 rebounds while Michael Porter Jr. had just 10 points and eight boards on the night.A preseason breakout candidate, Porter Jr. has been off to a slow start this year. The 23-year-old is averaging just 10.7 points and 6.3 rebounds per game while shooting a dismal 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and only 23.3 percent from 3-point range. With his scoring average of nearly nine points per game, the Nuggets will have to find a way to get Porter Jr. going if they want to survive starting point guard Jamal Murray’s absence.

According to dunksandthrees.com, the Nuggets rank 12th in the NBA with an adjusted net rating of +1.5. While Denver has struggled offensively (25th in the NBA), the Nuggets have been among the stingiest defensive teams in the league, holding opponents to a slim 101.2 adjusted rating on that end of the floor.

Morant carries Grizzlies to win over Denver

Memphis got back on the winning track with a 106-97 victory at home against the Denver Nuggets on Monday night. Ja Morant continued his early-season MVP pace, finishing with 26 points, eight assists, and seven rebounds on the night.The Grizzlies have managed to stay afloat in large part to Morant’s massive third-year leap. The 22-year-old point guard comes into the week third in the NBA in scoring at 28.3 points per game and seventh in the NBA at 7.7 assists per contest. Morant has also made strides from beyond the arc, where he’s shot a career-best 38.5 percent on 5.6 3-point attempts game, also a career-high.

According to dunksandthrees.com, the Grizzlies have been the NBA’s third-most elite offensive teams. Led by Morant, Memphis comes in scoring at a healthy 112.0 adjusted rating through seven games. However, the Grizzlies have struggled to get stops, posting an unsightly 113 adjusted defensive rating, good for the worst mark in the NBA. That led to Memphis posting a -1.0 adjusted net rating, 19th in the NBA.

The Nuggets come into this game as 1.5-point underdogs but I’m not ready to write off Denver just yet. Morant has carried Memphis in the early part of the season, but he will need some help against the NBA’s reigning MVP. Jokic hasn’t been initiating the offense has much this season and Michael Porter Jr. has also been struggling on the offensive end. Look for those two things to change as the Nuggets try to turn the corner in Memphis here. Take the Nuggets to cover the spread on the road in this matchup in Memphis on Wednesday evening.
