Denver Nuggets         

The Denver Nuggets will welcome the New Orleans Pelicans to Ball Arena for an NBA game on Tuesday. The Nuggets lost 126-119 in their last game over the 76ers. Joel Embiid won the battle of MVP candidates with 47 points and 18 rebounds as the Philadelphia 76ers extended their winning streak to seven games with a 126-119 win over Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets on Saturday.

Jokic and Embiid have finished first and second in voting for the NBA’s Most Valuable Player award over the last two seasons. Both are among the top candidates for MVP as this season hits the halfway mark, although Embiid was not named among the All-Star starters from the Eastern Conference. “I’m used to it and it’s not the first time,” Embiid said. “I think it’s more of a motivation to go out there and try to win the whole thing. That’s the only way that I’ll get that respect.”

Jokic gave Embiid a nod for his play. “He’s really talented,” Jokic told the Denver Post of Embiid. “Really shifty.” James Harden had 17 points and 13 assists, and Tobias Harris scored all 14 of his points in the second half after being shut down by Denver’s defense in the first half. “We were able to figure some things out and get some stops,” Harris said. “Guys stepping up and making shots was huge for us to cut the deficit in the fourth quarter to try and make something happen.”

New Orleans Pelicans

The Pelicans on the other hand lost 135-110 against the Bucks in their last game. New Orleans never led and lost its eighth straight. The Pelicans were playing for the second consecutive night — they lost 113-103 at home to the Wizards on Saturday — and were missing their top three scorers. 

Zion Williamson hasn’t played since Jan. 2 due to a strained right hamstring. Brandon Ingram (toe injury on left foot) and CJ McCollum (sprained right thumb) also were out Sunday. Jose Alvarado stepped up to lead the Pelicans with 18 points, while Trey Murphy III and Jonas Valanciunas had 16 each.

“I thought our effort was there,” Pelicans coach Willie Green. “I thought we fought. It just wasn’t enough tonight.” Even at full strength, the Pelicans would have struggled to slow down Antetokounmpo on a night when he seemingly couldn’t miss.

Denver Nuggets: Aaron Gordon, Michael Porter Jr., Nikola Jokić, Jamal Murray, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
