Trier was held out of the previous two games due to a strained left calf, leaving his status for Sunday's tilt against the Clippers clouded.
Ton of value here with the OVER, as I think this thing is going to end up a lot closer to 230 than 220. This is one of those games where it should be so easy for the Nuggets to score that they just don't have to worry about playing defense. The Knicks just gave up 129 points to the Jazz last time out and have allowed at least 109 points in their 16 games. They are giving up 117.3 ppg on the road this season.
Denver's defense has been solid overall, but it's been struggling of late. The Nuggets just allowed 118 to the Suns in their last game and are giving up 115.6 ppg over their last 5. A stretch in which their opponents have shot 50% from the field.
OVER is 7-2 in the Knick's last 9 against a team from the Western Conference, 11-4 in their last 15 road games and a perfect 5-0 in their last 5 vs a team with a winning record. OVER is also 7-1 in the Nuggets last 8 at home vs a team that's won fewer than 40% of their road games. Take the OVER!
