Nuggets Analysis: Coming off a 26-point loss

Although the Denver Nuggets will not be eliminated if they lose this game, no team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit to win a series. Just awarded MVP, Nikola Jokic will need to perform like the MVP in order to overcome these ferocious Timberwolves. The T-Wolves scored 52 points in the paint compared to the Nuggets’ meager 34, meaning the Nuggets were outscored inside. Surprisingly, Jamal Murray did not receive a suspension from the league after throwing a heat pack into the ground during live play. With 27.0 PPG, 15.0 RPG, and 9.4 APG throughout the playoffs, Jokic leads the squad. In the second game, he did not look like himself, scoring just 16 points, but he did manage to grab 16 rebounds.

 

Timberwolves Analysis: They haven’t lost in the playoffs

The majority of the NBA Playoffs’ lower seeds merely aim to secure home court advantage by winning one of the series’ opening two games. More than that was accomplished by the Timberwolves, who won both games and dominated Game two by a score of 26 points. Nearly every aspect of the game was controlled by Minnesota, who shot 50.0% from the field in the end while holding Denver to 34.9% shooting. The only players to score in double figures were Towns and Edwards, but Naz Reid and Nickeil Alexander-Walker both scored 14 points when they came off the bench. At just 22 years old, Anthony Edwards has emerged as a league sensation.
