Nuggets -3 vs Suns – 1.5 unit
The Nuggets are starting to roll and get healthy – 7-1 their last 8 at home and Michael Porter Jr came back the other night after missing 13 games and they just beat the Grizzlies 105-91 and the Blazers 120-107. The Suns are 5-9 on the road this season and have been up and down at points and Booker hasn’t been 100% healthy the last week. With Porter Jr back and in the lineup with Jokic and Aaron Gordon the Nuggets can outrebound the Suns and get some good shots at the rim. This is a playoff rematch from 2021 when Jamal Murray was hurt and the Nuggets had to start Austin Rivers and Facu Campazzo and the Suns swept the Nuggets. The Nuggets are much better than that roster and better defensively and Christmas day at home on national TV is a good spot for the Nuggets to get one back at the Suns.
