Denver Nuggets vs Miami Heat Prediction & Match Preview – November 29th, 2021 | NBA Season 2021-22
The Denver Nuggets will begin a seven-game road trip, the highest of the season, beginning with a visit to the FTX Arena for a highly anticipated rematch with the Miami Heat. This will be the first meeting between the two teams since the Nikola Jokic-Markieff Morris altercation that rocked the league.
Coach Mike Malone’s ability to float above water took a severe blow when Nikola Jokic sprained his wrist. They have lost four straight games, including six overall, in a terrible streak without the reigning NBA MVP. The Denver Nuggets have been beaten by an average of 16.5 points per game since Jokic was sidelined with injury.
Meanwhile, the Miami Heat have been alternating wins and losses in their last five games, mainly due to injuries as well. Jimmy Butler, Bam Adebayo, Kyle Lowry and Tyler Herro have been in and out of the lineup in their last few games, which is a big reason for the uneven performance.
Herro and Butler have been declared questionable by the Miami Heat for the game against the Denver Nuggets. Given the history of what happened the last time they met, they will likely push to play as long as they have medical clearance.
The Denver Nuggets completely outscored the Miami Heat the last time they found themselves behind Jokic’s spectacular triple-double. The rematch is a must-see on television, particularly after a war of words broke out on social media between the Morris twins and the Jokic brothers.
