Prediction: Denver Nuggets
Bookmaker: 1xbet

 

The Suns beat the Nuggets in Game 4, tying the series to two. It wasn’t an easy win, as Nuggets star Nikola Jokic (53 points, four rebounds, and 11 assists) pulled out all the stops to secure Denver’s Victory.

Still, a solid two-and-one punch from Devin Booker (36 points, six rebounds, 12 assists) and Kevin Durant (36 points, 11 rebounds, six assists) kept the Nuggets in the Victory in the fourth game.

While the Suns had other players contributing, notably Landry Shamet (19 points), it was a Two man show. Durant and Booker combined for 72 of the Suns’ 129 points. The situation on the other side was similar, with Jokic scoring more than 50 points as the center of gravity of the offense. Jamal Murray also had a solid performance in the loss, with 28 points, five rebounds, and seven assists.

For Game 5, their game plan is the same. The Nuggets will primarily pass Jokic, with Murray as a secondary option, while the Suns will look for Durant and Booker throughout the game.

While this Game 5 is a hang-up, the Nuggets and their home-court advantage will bounce back to take a 3-2 series lead.
