Strap in, as we’ve in for one of the best games of the NBA season, as a clash of heavyweights between Jokic and Giannis is going down tonight in Denver. The Nuggets are coming off an impressive road trip East, as well as a win at home against the 76ers. The Bucks, on the other hand, fired their coach Adrian Griffin, culpable of not improving their poor defensive record. They hired in his stead experienced coach Doc Rivers, who won a championship in 2008 with the Celtics. Rivers has been relatively poor since then, failing to take both the Clippers and 76ers to a conference finals during his tenure.

Expect this to be a hotly contested physical affair. Both teams have size in all departrments: Jokic, Gordon and Porter Jr will face off with Giannis, Lopez and Portis more times than not. On the toher hand, the matchup between Murray and Lillard is also an interesting one to keep your eye on. Either guard cna light up a game and win it singlehandedly. But the main even will be the Jokic-Giannis matchup. While Giannis’s scoring has been phenomenal, Jokic’s shredness could prove victorious in the end. The Bucks really need to pick up the pace if they want to catch up to Boston in first place in the East. Denver are more relaxed, as they are basically just on egame away from a hotly-contested Western conference this year.

The bookmakers give the Nuggets the edge, and while Denver doesn’t lose many at home, be careful of what a new cpach might get out of these Bucks players. Playing Giannis to score the most points (1.95) is amazing value for money, as is Jokic to have over 11.5 rebounds at 1.70. This is a close one, and a Bucks win at 2.40 is certainly not a trrible option while I do agree with Denver being the ever-so-slight favourite here. Who will take home the win in this clash of heavyweights? Tune in to see!
