Will Nuggets pull off upset vs. Pelicans? NBA Predictions 12/6/17

Will Nuggets pull off upset vs. Pelicans? NBA Predictions 12/6/17

Production came from everywhere.

There was one stark difference, however, between that game, a 134-131 Nuggets victory back on April 4 last season, and this one: The Nuggets won that game.

Gary Harris had a team-high 24 points for the Nuggets, but only six points came after intermission.

At this point, the Pelicans find themselves just good enough to not be in the NBA's proverbial cellar, but not good enough to be considered as any kind of serious title contender.

Cousins continued to attack the basket in the third quarter, scoring 13 points as the Pelicans widened their lead to 97-91. Trading him could prove wildly unpopular with the fan base and may plunge the team into the aforementioned cellar of the league, but it may be what is needed so that the franchise can start building a more solid foundation around a different player. New Orleans improved to just 6-6 in the Smoothie King Center but beat a contemporary in a crowded race in the heart of the Western Conference standings.

The Denver Nuggets could only keep DeMarcus Cousins at bay for so long.

It's no surprise to Nuggets' coach Mike Malone, who said he spent time with Nelson in New Orleans on Tuesday and considers him a friend, even though he released the guard in October.

Meanwhile, the Pelicans took advantage of Denver's obvious current weakness in the paint without their two stars, Paul Millsap and Nikola Jokic.

DeMarcus Cousins bounced back from the November 17 matchup, where the Nuggets held him to 14 points on 6-of-16 shooting.

Cousins has now had at least 40 points and 20 rebounds in a game twice this season, the first time coming in a victory at Sacramento on October 26. Jrue Holiday had 27 points.

New Orleans extended the lead to as many as 20 points midway through the quarter, as the Nuggets cleared the end of their bench in the final three minutes, allowing them to chip away against the lead. With nine minutes remaining, Cousins had helped draw five fouls each on Nuggets big men Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee, ensuring neither could slow him down on drives to the rim. Emmanuel Mudiay had 17 points, Jamal Murray finished with 15 points, Will Barton added 15 points and Trey Lyles had 10.

The loss was Denver's second in a row to start a six-game road trip and dropped the Nuggets to 3-9 away from Pepsi Center. They shot just 29 from the field in the second half (16-of-55), and did not have any fast break points in the second half.
