Denver Nuggets Team News

Denver entered the match very badly and allowed the Timberwolves to make a double-digit difference from the start of the game. That bad start to the match was a problem for the Nuggets in the series with the Lakers, where they were constantly in deficit and came back into the match during the second half. However, the Wolves are a much wider and defensively better team than the Lakers, even though the Nuggets came back and led during the second quarter, they failed to find a solution for the aggressive defense, and the great Anthony Edwards.

Jokic again played a great match and scored 32 points and added 8 rebounds and 9 assists, but he did not have the support of his teammates. In particular, Jamal Murray, who was stopped in the first match and could not easily receive the ball and not score, should bring much more to the attack. In the end, he scored only 17 points, which is quite bad by his standards, and the biggest problem is that he did not contribute to the creation, and Denver’s attack was quite static and too dependent on Jokic.

Nevertheless, the Nuggets are a champion team that knows how to “get out” of difficult situations, and we believe that in this match we will see the real “playoff” Nuggets, who are up to the task from the first minute of the meeting.

Minnesota Timberwolves Team News            

Already in the first match of the series, the Timberwolves showed that they have the quality for the biggest results  this season. They came to Denver for a break and already in the first game they reached it very easily. Can they reach a second break that would further open the door to the final? If Anthony Edwards is at the same level as in the first match, anything is possible. Edwards plays as if in a trance and is unstoppable for opposing defenses. Where he left off against the Suns, he continued against the Nuggets, where he scored 43 points on 17/29 shooting. The biggest problem for Edwards during the season was exactly continuity, but in the playoffs, he was maximally focused and provided fantastic games, and in the last three matches he scored over 35+ points.

However, one of the greatest qualities of Wolves is the defense and width they possess, which is an especially important factor in the playoffs. Naz Reid is one of the best  sixth players in the league who contributes a lot of points off the bench and is a great substitute and complement to KAT. Nevertheless, one of the key players in this series is Jaden McDaniels, who stopped Murray perfectly in match number one. Although he did not score a single point, McDaniels was the x-factor, and in the series against the Suns, we had an opportunity to see that the forward can always deliver much-needed points.

Denver Nuggets vs Minnesota Timberwolves Prediction

In this match, Denver has to be maximally aggressive and focused from the very start, because Minnesota has shown that they have much more width than the Lakers and that they will punish every “idle move” of the Denver team. We believe that Denver will win this match and will not allow the Timberwolves to go to Minneapolis with a two-break lead. In particular, we expect much greater offensive production from Murray.
