Rockets vs Nuggets. This game is screaming with points as two of the worst defensive teams in the NBA square off in Denver. The over/under is a staggering 238 and the game is projected to stay close. This is the game that you target, and the game that you target heavily. It all starts with James Harden coming off a monster performance last night, he plays a Nuggets defense that is the number one worst team in the NBA defending guards. He is maybe a bit fatigued due to the back to back, but this matchup is too good to pass up on. On the other side of things, every Nugget players on the team can potentially be rostered tonight with the exception of Jameer Nelson. Jamal Murray, Gary Harris, Will Barton, Jauanacho Hernangomez, Nikola Jokic, The Mannimal Faried, and Mason Plumlee, all qualify to be rostered tonight.

The Rockets allow a ton of points, and the Nuggets come in as a top three scoring team in the NBA behind the Rockets. This game is going to be insane, so take as many Nuggets players as you can. Lock in James Harden. Overall, this is the game to stack on the entire slate. Make sure you have at least two, if not three, players in this game. Especially with the over/under on two games are projected to be under 200 points.
