Nuggets stay stable
Denver showed great consistency throughout that season, the team was first in the West and then passed two playoff opponents. If they didn’t expect a sensation from Minnesota, there was a 4-1 victory, then Phoenix was a serious contender, here the Nuggets won 4-2. The Nuggets used the floor in the first meeting with the Lakers, Nikola Jokic played well as usual, scored another triple-double, above all, impressive 21 rebounds. One player will miss the upcoming game due to injury.
The Lakers need to show their maximum
Getting to the conference finals is already a worthy result, even if the Lakers are eliminated at this stage. Remember the regular season, at one point it seemed like the club was incapable of making the playoffs. The team confidently defeated Memphis and Golden State with the same score 4:2. Against Denver, they started with a loss, although they didn’t play too badly, Davis had a double-double with 40 points and 10 rebounds, LeBron was just one assist short of a triple-double. The Lakers also have one personnel loss before Game Two.
As in the first game, Denver is mentioned as the favourite, although here the visitors will be more charged, who will try to equalize the score in the series. The rivals showed spectacular basketball in the first meeting, we are waiting for something similar this time. We offer a total bet over 225.5 points.
