The Thunder are currently 1-0 after beating the Utah Jazz on Saturday while the Denver Nuggets are 0-1, falling to the Miami Heat. Thankfully, it was only the first of the eight games, so there’s no need to panic just yet.

By all accounts statistically, these two teams are on incredibly even playing fields, with little to separate the sides. What makes this encounter enticing is this is now the third game for Jerami Grant revisiting his old team, having won one and lost one. He should need no motivation to show the Thunder what they’re missing out on and put on a performance and help put mark a win for the Nuggets.
The big key for the Nuggets will be managing minutes with injuries and having bench players step up both offensively and defensively for a full 60 minutes.
