DEN vs CHI Dream11: Two teams with lofty goals this season will clash against each other In this game, the Eastern Conference team Chicago Bulls meet the West’s Denver Nuggets. The Bulls are on a tough road stretch and have lost two in a row while the Nuggets have lost the last two games and have cooled down after a hot start.
Bulls has an amzing guard trio of Ball, LaVine, and DeRozan. While Ball and LaVine pour in threes, DeRozan is a superb scorer from mid-range and beyond. Injuries to Vucevic and Williams has hurt the overall scheme but the team remains a hungry outfit. The Bulls will love to have some home games after a tough road trip.
Denver Nuggets pose a nightly threat considering they have the league’s reigning MVP in Nikola Jokic. Jokic leads the Nuggets effort on most nights while Barton has been huge in absence of Murray and DENter. The team takes a lot of pride on the defensive end and despite running thin with two stars out, the Nuggets’ have done an admirable job.

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis
Nuggets: Thin lineup has been challenged lately
Nikola Jokic leads the team in points, rebounds, and assists, and clearly play a crucial role in winning games. In the last two games, the team has been beaten by a short-handed Mavericks and by a Phily team that was on a five game losing streak. Surely, this is concerning and in both games, the extensive offensive struggles came to the forefront without DENter and Murray. How long can Nuggets hold their own just on the basis of defense?
Bulls: They look imposing
Bulls has the tools to succeed on both ends of the floor. Their last few losses have been against tough teams and because of a long trip away from home. The Bulls can score 105-115 points regularly while restricting opponents on the defensive end. The absence of Vucevic and Williams is certainly hurting the rebounding and defense but the team has still kept the engine going.
