Who's Playing

Denver (home) vs. Phoenix (away)

Current Records: Denver 11-3; Phoenix 8-7

What to Know

The Phoenix Suns are 4-12 against the Denver Nuggets since November of 2015, but they'll have a chance to close the gap on Sunday. Phoenix's road trip will continue as they head to Denver's court at 8 p.m. ET at Pepsi Center. The two teams each escaped (but just barely!) with wins against their previous opponents.

Phoenix escaped with a win on Saturday against the Minnesota Timberwolves by the margin of a single basket on Saturday, 100-98.

Meanwhile, it was a close one, but last week Denver sidestepped the Boston Celtics for a 96-92 win. Among those leading the charge for the Nuggets was PF Nikola Jokic, who dropped a triple-double on 18 points, 16 boards, and ten dimes. Jokic now has three triple-doubles this season.

The Suns aren't expected to pull this one out, but if it comes down to a funny bounce or two, they might get lucky. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 5-2 against the spread when expected to lose.

Their wins bumped Phoenix to 8-7 and Denver to 11-3. We'll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when Phoenix and Denver clash.
