Denver plays by the margin
You can expect a lot from Denver as it is a winner of the Western Conference and deservedly took first place. In the opening game of the playoffs, the Nuggets didn’t even have to play at full capacity, the farmers got a lot of minutes, because the difference in the score was impressive. The most productive player of the meeting was Jamal Murray, with 24 points, Porter and Jokic scored a double-double. Before this meeting, the club has one personnel loss.
Minnesota needs to show its basketball
The Timberwolves made it to the playoffs via play-in, though they made it on their second try. The opponent got serious in the first round, no one will blame going away from Denver, but you can’t lose like you did in the first game. Minnesota didn’t have enough attacking aggression, Towns and Edwards couldn’t handle their opponent’s defense, scoring 29 points from two-pointers. Two basketball players will not be able to enter the court due to injuries.
The bookies favor the home side and Minnesota are a good team in game two, but the Timberwolves didn’t look like themselves in the first game. In the playoffs, experience and game plan are very important, we agree that Denver has a better chance of success. The Nuggets will play in the same spirit, so don’t expect high scoring basketball. We bet on the sum below 226.5 points.
