The Denver Nuggets remain at home one day after defeating the Los Angeles Lakers, 99-90. This will mark the end of the Nuggets' back-to-back-to-back stretch of games to start the season. At 3-2, the Nuggets have won all three games at the Pepsi Center and will look to make it four on Monday night.
Standing in the way of that will be the Milwaukee Bucks. After an Opening Night loss to the Charlotte Bobcats, the Bucks have won its last two games, including a 102-81 blowout of the Washington Wizards. The Nuggets will need to contain Brandon Jennings, who is averaging 22.7 points and 5.3 assists per game in this young season. Andrew Bogut is pulling down a double-double so far this season with 15 points and 11 rebounds.
The Bucks are also expected to have Luc Mbah a Moute make his season debut in this game. The Nuggets had signed Mbah a Moute to an offer sheet during free agency but the Bucks decided they wanted to keep him.
