The Denver Nuggets took on the Orlando Magic last night at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.  Although many were shocked by the narrow victory the Nuggets accomplished over the Magic, most of the talk last night was about the rumored trade of Anthony Carmelo to the New Jersey Nets. Both general manager Masai Ujiri and Melo himself put an end to the gossip, and focused more the impressive win that allowed the team to improve to a 15-9 record. The magic in Orlando’s game was nowhere to be found on Tuesday night, as their defense was sluggish and practically non-existent. With that, Denver seized its chance to take the game 111-94 after regulation time. Basketball odds.

This game marked the tenth consecutive home win for the Nuggets, as well as a step closer to the playoffs. Although they only stand in third place of their division, this team has showed a great amount of promise in recent weeks. However, this win had everything to do with stunning forward Anthony Carmelo. Even when fighting a sore knee and flu, this amazing player came through with a season-high 35 points, 11 rebounds and 2 assists for a double-double. Luckily, this player doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. He clearly stated to the press, “I’ve been listening to reports all summer. Basketball spreads.

I ain’t thinking about that [leaving]. I’m here. You’ll see me suited up Thursday night.” Even without Chauncey Billups, they still did well on offense with replacement Ty Lawson giving 16 points and 3 rebounds and 6 assist.  All in all, Denver both outrebounded and outscored the Magic to take the win and solidify their lead. Basketball lines.

With the remarkable roster of players that Orlando put together this season, most people would have guessed they’d be doing a bit better by now. Though they occupy in second place of the Southeast Division with a sturdy 16-9 record, their defense can’t seem to stop the other team from getting to rim. Nevertheless, the Magic delivered a good game. Dwight Howards had 21 points and 14 rebounds, while J.J. Redick managed a career-high 29 points and 5 assists. Perhaps Orlando will turn it around in their next game against the Philadelphia 76ers on December 18th. For the best sports betting information, be sure to visit
