Denver +1.5 (2u) W

The Bulls travel to Denver for their 5th road game in 8 days to face the Nuggets. Although Wade was rested last game and should be fresh for tonight, the rest of the team may show some signs of fatigue in high altitude against a physical Denver team ranked in the top 3 in points in the paint and rebound rate. Barton should be good to go for his normal minutes after his ankle injury and 7th overall pick Murray has stepped up to hit 11/20 threes in the last four games to provide some spacing for the Nuggets. Chicago has only had two consecutive days off once this season compared to three times for the Nuggets, and they could have a sluggish game as they reach the end of their 6 game road trip.
