After trouncing the defending world champion Dallas Mavericks in Game 1 of the 2011-12 campaign, the Nuggets will look to capitalize on a young Utah team coming off a late-night loss against the Lakers on Tuesday. Though both teams have an above average amount of depth that will be on clear display throughout the evening, the Nuggets simply have more talent intertwined within its roster than the Jazz. Being that tonight is the home opener for the Nuggets, look for the boys in blue and yella to come out firing on all cylinders. Also, be sure and keep an eye on the front-court battle between Nene, Mozgov and Birdman versus Favors, Kanter, Jefferson and Milsap. Last night against the Lakers all four of the Jazz’s big men received ample playing time with the rookie and No. 3 overall pick, Enes Kanter, logging over 20 minutes of action. Should the young, 6-11 Turk receive roughly that same amount of playing time tonight, it would be wise for our bigs to exploit this opportunity and take advantage of Kanter’s inexperience. Please post your in-game comments, thoughts, observations and whatever else is on your mind here.
