Game Overview

The Denver Nuggets are hosting the Minnesota Timberwolves for Game 2 of their Western Conference Semifinals series at Ball Arena. With the Timberwolves leading the series 1-0, the Nuggets are under pressure to bounce back and protect their home court.

 

Team Statistics

Denver Nuggets

The Nuggets rely heavily on the MVP-caliber play of Nikola Jokic, who has been dominant all season. With his ability to score, rebound, and facilitate, he will be a key factor in determining the outcome of this game.

Minnesota Timberwolves

The Timberwolves have been led by the scoring prowess of Anthony Edwards, who has been unstoppable on offense. They will look to carry their momentum from Game 1 into this matchup and continue to put pressure on the Nuggets.

 

Injuries and Player Matchups

Jamal Murray is listed as day-to-day for the Nuggets, and his availability could be a game-changer for Denver. The Timberwolves are relatively healthy heading into this game, which gives them an advantage in terms of lineup stability.

 

Recent Performances

Denver Nuggets

The Nuggets are coming off a disappointing loss in Game 1 and will be looking to bounce back with a strong performance at home. With their season on the line, expect them to come out with a sense of urgency and intensity.

Minnesota Timberwolves

The Timberwolves are riding high after stealing Game 1 on the road, but they know that the series is far from over. They will need to continue executing at a high level to maintain their advantage over the Nuggets.

 

Prediction

The Denver Nuggets cannot afford to lose both games at home to start this series. With the pressure on, expect Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets to come out firing on all cylinders.

Given their desperation to avoid falling into a 0-2 hole, the Nuggets are the clear pick to win Game 2 and even the series.

Pick: Denver Nuggets -5.5
