Friday night at TD Garden two of the best teams in the league will meet up for the first time this season. As the defending NBA champions travel across the country to play the Boston Celtics here in this game on Friday night as both of these teams look for a statement victory midway through the regular season. This could be a potential early preview of an NBA finals matchup as both of these teams are sitting towards the top of their conferences and on track to make another deep playoff run. They should provide us with one of the best games of the evening in an absolutely loaded NBA Slade here on Friday night to wrap up the third week of January.
The defending NBA champions are not experiencing any type of championship hangover as they have put together a quality start to the regular season. They will look to keep the momentum rolling here on Friday night on the road at TD Garden against the Boston Celtics as two of the top teams in the league will face off for the first time this season. Boston has been incredible at home this season which means Nikola Jokić and his supporting cast will have to put up solid numbers throughout this game if they want to beat the Boston Celtics on the road and pick up yet another early season statement victory.
Denver comes into this game with 28 victories through their first 42 games of the regular season and they will look to pick up their 29th victory of the year here on Friday night in Boston. Their solid start to the season has put them in third place of the Western Conference, and they will look to move further up the standings with another quality performance on the road against the Boston Celtics. Former two-time most valuable player award winner. Nikola Jokić has been incredible once again this season, and if he continues to play the way he has he should likely win his third third MVP award in the last four seasons. As he has carried this Denver Nuggets team to their solid start to the regular season, and he will look to lead them to another massive victory here in this one as well.

This is likely going to be the best game of a loaded NBA slate here on Friday night, but in the end I look for the Boston Celtics to defend their home winning streak.
