Jalen Brunson will play for the Knicks but this is basically fading a struggling Nuggets team playing a morning game on their body clocks and in the front end of a back-to-back. While the Knicks haven't been dominant at home, the Nuggets are a .500 road team. Denver is 8-13 ATS as a road favorite and has covered the spread just once in its last six games overall.
Jamal Murray has recently been struggling from an efficiency standpoint and appeared to have tweaked his surgically repaired left knee sometime over the last week. The former Wildcat has been shooting below 40% during the month of March however I believe he turned a corner in his last appearance against the Pistons. Murray looked healthy, logged nearly 40 minutes, and chipped in a solid all around game. He will take on the Knicks this afternoon and is not on the injury report for the first time this week. New York has been giving up a ton of production to opposing lead guards ever since Jalen Brunson departed the lineup due to injury. I like Murray to get back on track versus the Knicks.
