Denver is 20-6 at home in the Pepsi Center, cashing 16 of those straight up wins, so we'll take the Nuggets plus the bucket tonight against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Our Monday night NBA selection is on the Denver Nuggets at home in the Mile High City over the Boston Celtics.

The Celts went into Phoenix and won big on Sunday with a 128-108 triumph, while Denver lost their game at Milwaukee, 120-117.  But the Nuggets have played much better at home in the Pepsi Center than on the road, as they're 20-6 SU at home and 16-10 ATS.

Denver's road game in Milwaukee was the final game of an eight-game road trek, so the Nuggets will surely be excited to play in front of their home fans for the first time in 20 days.  Look for a big effort tonight by George Karl's crew.  Take Denver.

Free Pick: Nuggets +2 (-110)
