Teams from either conference take each other on as Denver Nuggets host Miami Heat in the regular season of the NBA on Monday. The Nuggets are in the second spot in the Western Conference and for the longest time led the league with the best record. Currently, the team is on a three-game losing streak, and they will be looking to make things better in this fixture. They still do have some good players such as Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray in the lineup, and they are going to get a higher seed in the playoff, which will see them get an easier route to the finals of the conference.
Meanwhile, Miami Heat are former champions and it is clear they are nowhere near the team that once dominated basketball. They don’t even have a superstar who can lead the franchise and after trading the lottery pick to Philadelphia 76ers last season, the chances of them acquiring anyone good are minimal. The current roster is only good enough to win enough games to make the playoffs in the Eastern Conference, and the management will be looking to break this mould in order to once again become an elite side in the NBA.
