Three at 3: Hornets Can Sting Nuggets With Perimeter Shooting


Having posted a winning evening on four of its last five nights in action, Three at 3 is back for Friday with its best bets against the spread.


Despite the fact that Denver has the league’s fifth-best defensive efficiency rating, the Nuggets are vulnerable at defending two things: long mid-range jumpers and corner threes.


Walker is a lot quicker than the Nuggets’ guards, and Nikola Jokic—who has improved drastically as a defender this season—is still too slow-footed to stick with him when switching in pick-and-roll situations.


One last thing that needs to be mentioned is the fact that Denver is 7-17 against the spread when coming off a game in which it scored 120 or more points since the start of last season.


Also, while now-fired Fred Hoiberg was far from the problem in Chicago over the last few years, players tend to play hard when competing for a new coach.


While he and LeBron James have struggled to form a connection on the court, it’s never a good thing to lose a talent like Ingram.
