Timberwolves Analysis: On a 2-game losing streak

After losing Game 4 to the Nuggets 115-10 on Sunday, the Minnesota Timberwolves will now be under pressure as their series lead vanishes. The squad was led by Anthony Edwards, who scored a game-high 44 points on 16 of 25 shots. However, Mike Conley and Karl-Anthony Towns both contributed 15 points and nine assists, and Edwards was not given enough support. The Timberwolves as a team shot 11 of 28 from 3-point range and 47% from the field, but they struggled mightily on defense, giving up too much room after giving up 64 points in the 1st half to trail by as many as 18 points.

 

Nuggets Analysis: Jokic just scored 35 points

On Sunday night, the Nuggets triumphed 115-107 to win their 2nd straight game in this series. The Nuggets shot 44.8% from three and 57% from the field, demonstrating their sustained offensive efficiency. In spite of being outrebounded by 11 and turning the ball over 12 times, the Nuggets led by as many as 18 points at one point in the game. Leading the Nuggets with 35 points, 7 rebounds, and seven assists was three-time MVP Nikola Jokic. Aaron Gordon shot 11–12 from the field to finish with 27 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists in what was perhaps his greatest performance of the series. Jamal Murray scored 19 points and dished out eight assists on what was otherwise a quiet night. In this game, Justin Holiday scored ten points and Christian Braun scored eleven, bringing the Nuggets bench to life.
