NBA Pick Phoenix at Denver 1-11-10

Phoenix Suns at Denver Nuggets

Tuesday January 11, 2011 9:00 PM EST

Line: Denver -5

Phoenix has not won back to back games since early December. They bring in a 2 game road losing streak and look to snap that vs a Nuggets team that could be playing with a lot on their minds. Nuggets SF Carmelo Anthony asked for a trade at the beginning of the season, and now more rumors have emerged. Everyone on the Nuggets roster looks like a trade asset, even PG Chauncey Billups and PF Al Harrington. The Nuggets are currently on a 3 game winning streak.

Stats to consider:

Phoenix Suns:

  • Phoenix is 15-20 with a 6-11 road record.
  • Points per game: 105.9 (2nd)
  • Points allowed per game: 108.3 (30th)
  • Rebounds per game: 38.8 (28th)
  • Assists per game: 23.1 (7th)

Denver Nuggets:

  • Denver is 20-16 with a 15-4 home record.
  • Points per game: 105.6 (3rd)
  • Points allowed per game: 104.3 (24th)
  • Rebounds per game: 41.1 (20th)
  • Assists per game: 20.5 (20th)

What to watch for:

  • Suns new leading scorer is SG Vince Carter who came over from Orlando. He leads the team with 17.5 PPG. Another piece that came over in that deal is C Marcin Gortat who leads the team with 6 RPG and 1.3 BPG. The one consistency on the Suns is PG Steve Nash who has 16.9 PPG and leads the team with 10.7 APG.
  • The focus of trade rumors has been Nuggets SF Carmelo Anthony. He is having one of his best seasons as he leads the team with 23.8 PPG and 8.2 RPG. Another name recently put up in these rumors has been PG Chauncey Billups who has 16.8 PPG and leads the team with 4.9 APG and 1.2 SPG.

This basketball pick is tough due to the fact that these two teams are dealing with trade issues. The Suns recently traded away their leading scorer in Jason Richardson and received Vince Carter to replace him. The Nuggets are going through a tough stretch as it looks like a Carmelo Anthony trade is going to happen soon. It appears that nobody is safe on the Nuggets roster and this could affect their play. The Suns won their last game and haven’t put up back to back wins since early December.
