NBA Betting Preview
Denver Nuggets (1-2) at Golden State Warriors (1-3)
Wednesday, 10:35 pm Eastern – ESPN
SBG Global Opening Line: Warriors – 3.5 , Total 205.5
The Denver Nuggets will have a new look on Wednesday as Chauncey Billups is expected to be in the starting lineup after being acquired in a trade from Detroit for guard Allen Iverson. The Nuggets came to the conclusion that it was time to deal Iverson and bringing Billups back to his hometown was a natural. In his 11 NBA seasons, Billups has averaged 14.8 ppg, 5.5 apg, 2.9 rpg. He led the Pistons to the 2004 NBA title. Losing Iverson hurts the offense but a change was needed in Denver and it was obvious to many that Iverson was the player to move.

Golden State provides a perfect opportunity for the Nuggets to get a win. The Warriors have struggled this season and other than center Andris Biedrins, most of the team has underachieved. Through four games, Biedrins has averaged 17.5 points and 14.5 rebounds per game.
