What to Know

The Denver Nuggets haven’t won a matchup against the Phoenix Suns since January 23rd, but they’ll be looking to end the drought on Wednesday. They will face off at 10 p.m. ET October 20th at Footprint Center to kick off their 2021 seasons. Denver is coming off of a 47-25 season with hopes of advancing further than the second round of the playoffs, where they were eliminated by Phoenix in a four-game sweep. Likewise, the Suns enjoyed a 51-21 record last season and almost won it all, losing 105-98 to the Milwaukee Bucks in game six of the NBA Finals.

Two offensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Denver was fourth best in field goal percentage, finishing the 2020-2021 season at 48.50%. But Phoenix was even better: they ranked second in the league in field goal percentage, closing the year with 49% overall. This one is shaping up to be an exciting offensive shootout.

Since the experts predict a loss, Denver will need to dig deep. We’ll soon see whether they can make the experts look bad.
