The Western Conference in the NBA is arguably superior to the Eastern Conference, but things are shaping up a little differently in the early part of the season. There seems to be a real parity in the west, with a number of teams hovering right around .500. Two of those teams, the Denver Nuggets and Phoenix Suns, will hook up for the second time this season on Friday night when the Suns head into Denver for a Western Conference tilt.
Suns @ Nuggets NBA Odds Game Information and Opening LinesDate/Time: Friday, November 20, 2015 9:00 PM ET Venue: Pepsi Center Opening Lines: Phoenix -2 (-110), Denver +2.5 (-110)(Live Stream Option)I’m sure that I am not the only one surprised by the 6-6 start that the Denver Nuggets have delivered to start the season. This was a team pegged by many to be on the outside looking in at the playoff picture, and while that may still end up being the case, this start is certainly a big step forward for this franchise. Particularly pleasing has to be the play of Emmanuel Mudiay. The young man was expected to have more than his fair share of mistakes during his rookie season, but other than a couple of wobbly starts, he has looked as though he belongs in the NBA. Denver has made a habit of getting involved in tight encounters this season, as can be seen by their points for and against average, which is currently 3.4 points in the red. They are doing a good job of getting some wins in those tight games, though, and will need to keep that trend going if they want to continue to surprise.
