Denver (44-31), which is sixth in the Western Conference, suffered a 115-107 home loss against Charlotte in December after having won the previous five meetings between the teams. The Hornets (39-36) pulled even with Brooklyn for eighth in the East after posting their seventh win in eight games on Sunday, a 119-110 road triumph over the Nets.

Tipoff at the Spectrum Center is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET. Denver is a 3.5-point favorite in the latest Nuggets vs. Hornets odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over-under for total points scored is 233.5 (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our NBA odds page).

The 27-year-old Serbian center also is second in rebounding (13.5) and eighth in assists (7.9). Jokic posted his league-leading 60th double-double of the season and nearly had his 19th triple-double when he registered 35 points, 12 boards and eight assists in the Nuggets' 113-107 home victory against Oklahoma City on Saturday.

The model also knows LaMelo Ball matched Brooklyn's entire output from beyond the arc on Sunday, making seven 3-pointers en route to a 33-point performance for Charlotte.
