Denver Nuggets Offense vs. Phoenix Suns Defense
The Denver Nuggets have the third-best offensive rating in the league, scoring 115.5 points per game, while the Phoenix Suns have the 11th-best defensive rating, allowing 108.5 points per game. The Nuggets' offense is led by center Nikola Jokic, who averaged 24.5 points, 11.8 rebounds, and 9.8 assists during the regular season. Jokic is the favorite to win the league's MVP award this season and has been the driving force behind the Nuggets' playoff success.
The Phoenix Suns' defense is anchored by center Deandre Ayton, who has averaged 10.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game in the playoffs. The Suns' defense has been solid all season, but it has struggled against Jokic and the Nuggets in this series. The Nuggets have scored over 115 points in four of the five games so far, including a 118-102 win in Game 5.
Phoenix Suns Offense vs. Denver Nuggets Defense
The Phoenix Suns have the ninth-best offensive rating in the league, scoring 112.5 points per game, while the Denver Nuggets have the 16th-best defensive rating, allowing 109.9 points per game. The Suns' offense is led by Devin Booer, who averaged 27.3 points and 5.5 assists per game during the regular season. Chris Paul has been dealing with a shoulder injury but is expected to play in Game 6.
The Denver Nuggets' defense is led by forward Aaron Gordon, who has averaged 1.2 steals and 0.8 blocks per game in the playoffs. The Nuggets' defense has been inconsistent in this series, allowing the Suns to score over 120 points in two of the five games. However, they did hold the Suns to 87 points in Game 4 and 102 points in Game 5.
The Denver Nuggets have no injured players, while the Phoenix Suns' Chris Paul is listed as probable with a shoulder injury.
The over/under for this game is set at 226.5 points, and we're predicting the best bet is the over. Both teams have high-powered offenses that can score in bunches, and the Nuggets have scored over 115 points in four of the five games in this series. The Suns' defense has struggled to contain Jokic and the Nuggets, and they will need to score more points to keep up in this game.
Pick: Over 226
