Only one more quarter stands between the Denver Nuggets and the win they were favored to collect going into this night. Three quarters in and their offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating the Sacramento Kings 96-85.
Center Nikola Jokic has led the way so far for the Nuggets, as he has 28 points and six assists in addition to seven boards and two blocks. A double-double would be Jokic’s seventh in a row.
Sacramento has been relying on center Alex Len, who has 18 points along with six rebounds, and point guard De’Aaron Fox, who has 24 points and four assists in addition to five boards.
Sacramento has lost 88% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this year, so this one seems just about wrapped up
Sacramento @ Denver
Current Records: Sacramento 16-24; Denver 18-18
The Denver Nuggets haven’t won a matchup against the Sacramento Kings since Dec. 29 of 2019, but they’ll be looking to end the drought on Friday. The Nuggets will play host again and welcome Sacramento to Ball Arena, where tip-off is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET. Denver is out to stop a four-game streak of losses at home.
Denver was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Wednesday as they fell 115-109 to the Utah Jazz. A silver lining for Denver was the play of center Nikola Jokic, who dropped a triple-double on 26 points, 21 boards, and 11 assists.
Meanwhile, Sacramento was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap on Wednesday as they fell 108-102 to the Atlanta Hawks. One thing holding the Kings back was the mediocre play of power forward Harrison Barnes, who did not have his best game: he finished with only eight points on 3-for-10 shooting in his 29 minutes on the court.
The Nuggets are the favorite in this one, with an expected 8-point margin of victory. Now might not be the best time to take Denver against the spread since they’ve let down bettors for the past two consecutive games.
The losses put Denver at 18-18 and Sacramento at 16-24. Denver is 8-9 after losses this season, Sacramento 9-14.

The Nuggets are a big 8-point favorite against the Kings, according to the latest NBA odds.
The oddsmakers had a good feel for the line for this one, as the game opened with the Nuggets as a 7.5-point favorite.
Over/Under: -110
