The Rockets have been explosive, efficient, and exciting to watch, unfortunately, they’re still not the Denver Nuggets. Having won three of their last four games, all of which were on the road, this feels like Denver’s game to lose regardless of who plays and who doesn’t. Not having the elite perimeter and mid-range shooting provided by Michael Porter Jr., and Bones Hyland is going to be difficult to manage.
They held the Thunder to 39% shooting. Jalen Green led the Rockets with 28 points and 9 assists while Alperen Sengun did it all with 21 points 19 rebounds, 7 assists, 3 steals and 2 blocked shots. Jabari Smith added 15 points and 13 rebounds. The Rockets average 110. 2 points per game, which ranks 22nd. They give up 115. 7 points per game, which ranks 24th in the NBA. Gordon leads NuggetsThe Denver Nuggets lead the NBA's Northwest Division with a record of 12-7.
They lead the Blazers by a game. The Nuggets sit second in the Western Conference, one game behind the Phoenix Suns. The Nuggets are playing good basketball right now as they have won two straight and 3 of their last 4, with all three wins coming on the road. They went to overtime last Wednesday to beat the Thunder 131-126 and then headed to LA to top the Clippers 114-104. Denver takes care of business behind Aaron Gordon's 29 PTS 💪🏼⚒ pic. twitter. com/wWldK756ua— NBA TV (@NBATV) November 26, 2022 The Nuggets didn't shoot well in this game, but they took 20 more shots than the Clippers due to a big edge in rebounding and offensive rebounding. They also had a ton of steals and turnovers, which contributed to the huge edge in shots.
Nuggets Injury ReportMichael Porter Jr. (heel contusion) is being listed as doubtful to play along with Bones Hyland (non-COVID illness), who missed the team shootaround this morning. Jeff Green is officially out with a knee injury. Nuggets officially list Michael Porter Jr. as doubtful Monday vs. Rockets. I’d be surprised if he played — it would be the third-straight game that he’s missed.
However, they’ve thrown together some impressive performances as of late that should have any title contender at least slightly concerned, including a narrow 128-122 victory over the 11-9 Atlanta Hawks just a few nights ago. Michael Malone’s squad has managed one of the better records through the first 19 games of the regular season, a few of which were without key players in the rotation. Although, they could be underestimating a red-hot Rockets team that appears to travel well, having just knocked off Dallas on the road last Wednesday. Will the Nuggets’ supporting cast help to keep the game out of reach? Or will the lethal offensive trio of Jalen Green, Kevin Porter, and Alperen Sengun be too much for Denver to handle? Denver Nuggets vs. Houston Rockets Odds, Spread, Over/UnderThe latest odds from FanDuel Sportsbook have Denver as -11.
This is their first meeting this year. Can the Rockets end their losing streak versus the Nuggets? Houston has a good weekendThe young Houston Rockets come into this game riding a two-game winning streak. They beat the Hawks on Friday night 128-122 and then followed that up with a 118-105 win over the Thunder on Saturday. The Rockets are now 5-14. They trail the Pelicans by 6 games in their division and are ranked last in the Western Conference, 8 games behind first-place Phoenix. — Hoop Central (@TheHoopCentral) November 27, 2022 They were impressive in their 118-105 win over the Thunder Saturday night. The Rockets shot 52% from the floor and were 18 of 36 from three-point range.
However, players like Vlatko Cancar and Bruce Brown have stepped up lately in admirable fashion, and we should expect much of the same tonight. Denver would be foolish to underestimate Houston, but fans should feel confident hammering the Nuggets to win at home on Monday night.

He was questionable heading into Denver’s last two games. Bones Hyland is questionable for tomorrow. Jeff Green is out. — Harrison Wind (@HarrisonWind) November 27, 2022Denver Nuggets vs. Houston Rockets PredictionThe Houston Rockets struggled through the first quarter of the regular season but have now won back-to-back games thanks to balanced scoring contributions from all five of their starters. In their last win over the Thunder, all starters finished with 15 or more points, and then against the Hawks, four players eclipsed 20 points, including a 30-point performance from Jalen Green.
