Final Six Game Predictions
(FortCollins-CO) With six remaining games to the regular season schedule, I am ready to give my final win/loss predictions. Keep in mind that the Nuggets need only two wins or Utah loses to secure the division title. All the win/loss records for opposing teams are current as of the date of this post.
Golden State @ Pepsi Center: (30-44) How the Nuggets could lose this game after a thriller against the Lakers is beyond me. I predict the Warriors to get run out of the gym. They are a team that has struggled all year after coming out of the gates hot.
@Portland: (21-53) Another team that is not capable of playing with the Nuggets in any capacity. This game should be a lock in the W column.
@Utah: (35-39) A dangerous game. If the Nuggets win against the Warriors and the Trailblazers the division would be secure. The Jazz could be potentially fighting for a playoff birth. I predict a loss for the Nuggets. Utah will be desperate and a desperate team is a dangerous team.
Sacramento @ Pepsi Center: (39-37) The Nuggets will have their hands full. After returning to the Mile High City after potentially losing to the Jazz. The Nuggets will be willing and ready to dispose of the Kings. Expect Carmelo to have 30-35 points. Nuggets win a tough game.
Houston @ Pepsi Center: (32-43) Houston is a team that will not have much to play for. Nuggets win, despite possibly sitting some starters.
@Seattle: (31-43) The Nuggets have beaten the Sonics this year with some convincing showings. Seattle still has some pros on the team and I expect the Nuggets to sit starters. Nuggets lose a game that doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things.
I am predicting the Nuggets to finish 4-2 in the last six. The Nuggets need to come out washed and waxed for the playoffs. Denver will finish the year 46-36 for the regular season (Or hopefully better!!). Denver is going to be buzzin come playoff time!!
