The Knicks, on the other hand, have been putting up a good fight this season, with their younger players stepping up to the challenge and making a name for themselves in the league. Star Julius Randle is averaging a double-double with 25.3 pts/10.3 rebs per game. They will be looking to upset the Nuggets and prove their worth as a team to be reckoned by continuing a new winning streak of their own.

Fans can expect an intense and thrilling game from both teams, with plenty of scoring opportunities and defensive plays. This will be a must-watch game for basketball fans everywhere. This could have huge implications across the playoff spectrum.

When you are a Nuggets squad that boasts MVP Nikola Jokic averaging a triple-double with a 24.7 pts/10 ast/11.9 rebs slash. Teammate Jamal Murray coming off his second double-double of the season versus the Detroit Pistons on Thursday was a boon. That should have the Nuggets primed to be at full-go in Madison Square Garden.

The key will be how quickly and consistently the Nuggets’ defense shows up. They have the best clutch defense in the league. But you can’t rely on flipping the switch late against good teams the way they did against Detroit. So Saturday will go a long way in showing just how far the Nuggets have bounced back.
