The Denver Nuggets come into this game with a loaded squad, unlike the Phoenix Suns, who are shorthanded coming into this game. Suns are currently injury-depleted, which is why it is not surprising that they lost to their recent games. As for the Nuggets, they are the complete opposite of their opponents, as they have a complete squad in this game. This will be the second time these two teams meet during the regular season of this season. The Nuggets and the Suns will meet on January 12, 2023, at 11:00 AM (GMT+8), when the Nuggets host this game.

The hosts are currently in a good shape, which is evident with their current record, as they are at the top of the Western Conference. From their 40 games, they managed to win 27, losing to 13. With a complete squad coming into this game, they must hold into their momentum to win this match. They are doing well at home, winning 17 of their 20 home games. As for the visitors, they are currently at the eighth spot of the Western Conference. Considering that they are shorthanded recently, they are still lucky that they still belong at the top 10 of the Western Conference.

The Nuggets come into this game with eyes set to win for the fourth consecutive time, as they are currently on a three-game winning streak. Currently at the first spot of the Western Conference, the Nuggets are more than capable to do so. The two-time MVP, Nikola Jokic remains to be as dominant for the Nuggets. During their last game against the Lakers, they were able to lead them for as much as 20 points. However, on that game, they only shot 15 for 42 in the three-point line. But, despite not having a good record beyond the arc, they did well in the free-throw line, shooting 15 of 17. Despite their good offensive record, defense is what they need to improve. Their offense is the fifth in the league, having 116.8 points per game, and 16th in defense surrendering 113.7 points.

Nikola Jokic is the one leading the Nuggets with 25 points, and 10.8 rebounds per game. In fact, during their game against the Lakers, he listed his 11th triple-double this season. Jamal Murray is also contributing for the Nuggets, having 18.5 points per game.

The recent stories for the Suns is the, suffering injury after injury. It is indeed very unfortunate for the Suns since those who are getting injured are their key players. Despite of that, they are still lucky that they won against the Warriors on their last game. On their game against the Cavaliers, they had their chances on that game as well, but their awful fourth quarter is what failed them. When it comes to the three-point line, they are doing quite well, averaging 38.4% beyond the arc. They also took care of their free-throw attempts, shooting 79.9%, taking advantage of the charity stripe. In offense, they are the 17th spot with 113.0 points per game, and 6th in defense giving up 111.0 points per game.

Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton are the two players leading the Suns with 27.1 and 17.5 points per game. However, It is unfortunate that these two players are two of the injured players for the Suns. Along with them are Cameron Johnson, Cameron Payne, Chris Paul, Landry Shamet, and Torrey Craig.
