The Charlotte Hornets look to put an end to their three game losing streak when they head to Denver to take on the Nuggets. This will be the final stop of a six-game road trip for the Hornets, who will return home to host the Rockets on December 27th.
The Nuggets look to rebound after losing a 108-94 decision to the lowly Thunder on Wednesday night. At 15-15 on the season, the Nuggets are barely clinging on to the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference. With the Mavericks and Timberwolves right on their tail, Denver will be seeking a much-needed win tonight.

Hornets vs. Nuggets Prediction and Pick
Everything in this game points towards the OVER, so despite it being at a high mark of 230, I'm going to ride the trends. The OVER is 10-3 in the Hornets last 13 games, and 13-2 in the Nuggets last 15 games.
Those trends make sense when you look at each team's stats. The Nuggets and Hornets rank fifth and sixth respectively when it comes to effective field goal percentage, and 25th and 30th in opponent effective field goal percentage.
An average of 232 points are being scored in Hornets games this season, which is the highest mark in the NBA.
Let's sit back, and root for points tonight.
