2 units on Denver -1.5 (-108) (risk 2 to return 3.85) RESULT: LOSS
Denver won its third in a row, 139-137 in double overtime over the Grizzlies on Monday as Nikola Jokic, who never seems to have an off-night, exploded for 47 points with 15 rebounds and eight assists and he hit a go-ahead 3-pointer late in the second overtime. Portland has lost five of its past seven games after a 113-112 heartbreaking defeat against the Clippers last night. Paul George made two free throws with 4.8 seconds left to seal the victory for Los Angeles. Damian Lillard didn't play for the Trail Blazers and he is probable tonight with a hamstring injury. The Nuggets are 8-2 ATS playing with one day of rest and they have covered eight of their past 11 road games and they are 6-1 ATS their past seven meetings at Portland. Take the Nuggets - Max Play.
