Thursday night takes us to San Francisco where two of the top teams in the Western Conference over the last several seasons will face off. As the previous two NBA champions will lock horns here in this game on Thursday night as the Denver Nuggets travel to Golden State to play the Warriors. This should be one of the best games of this reduced two game slate here on Thursday night as both of these teams are looking for a crucial victory to get momentum rolling in the right direction early on in 2024. Both of these teams have aspirations of making the postseason. For Denver they will look to defend their NBA title and as far as Golden State is concerned, they will look to add yet another title to their dynasty.
The Denver Nuggets are having an incredible season, and they have not experienced any type of championship hangover throughout the early part of the year. They will look to keep the momentum rolling with a quality performance here in this game on Thursday night on the road in San Francisco against the Golden State Warriors. As they look to pick up a victory over another potential playoff team within the conference, and a victory, in one of the toughest venues in the entire NBA as well. It’ll certainly not be an easy task for the Denver Nuggets to get the job done here in this one, but they are more than capable of stepping up to the plate and delivering throughout this game on Thursday night against Golden State.
They will need to play one of their most consistent games of basketball this season and Nikola Jokić will have to put up his usual numbers if the Denver Nuggets want to be successful in this game on Thursday against Golden State. Denver comes into this game with one of the best records in the NBA throughout the first half of the regular season as they have picked up 24 victories in their first 34 games of the year. They will look to win their second consecutive game and the fourth out of their last five with another quality performance here in this one on Thursday night. They’ve already played the Golden State Warriors twice this season in both times Denver came away with the victory, and they will look to make it three for three with another solid performance here in this game.

It has been a bit of a roller coaster year for gold of the state, and they will look for a massive momentum boost with a victory in this game on Thursday night at home against Denver. This is a much-needed victory for the Warriors as they look to keep the narrative alive that they are a tough team to beat at home with a victory here in this one. They had a relatively solid start to the year before Steph Curry had to go to the injured list with a knee injury, and ever since then it has hampered their performance, even with Curry back in the lineup.
They will look to get things going throughout the early part of 2024 with a quality performance here in this game on Thursday night, as they look to take down the defending NBA champions here in this one. They come into this game slightly but below the .500 mark and they will look to get things back on track with a victory over Nikola Jokić and the Denver Nuggets. They will also look to pick up their first victory of the season against Denver after two previous opportunities went the way of the Nuggets. This game here on Thursday night will be their first home game of the season series.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Denver is 9-6 as a road favorite
- Golden State is 1-2 as a home underdog
- Denver is 16-7 after a win
I expect this to be a close back-and-forth game between these two quality teams, but in the end I do look for the Denver Nuggets to go on the road to San Francisco and pull out the upset victory. As I look for Denver to use that momentum, they currently have to parlay it into another victory early on in the regular season for their third consecutive win of the year against Golden State. I look for Nikola Jokić to be the focal point of this game and for him to lead the Denver Nuggets to a much-needed victory here in this game on Thursday night in San Francisco.As always, get our VIP Pick Free Tonight by Clicking Here!
