Utah - Denver: Will the Jazzmen Increase Their Advantage?
24/08/2020, 01:00 GTM
Undoubtedly, the strengths of teams are equal in this confrontation. This is both in composition and in the game. In terms of scoring, Utah and Denver are rather unstable and it is difficult to say what they will show from match to match.
“Utah” lost to the “nuggets” only the first fight of the series. But the "jazzmen" did it in overtime (125-135). In other fights, Quincy Snyder's wards looked much better and deservedly beat Denver. This was the last match in which the Salt Lake City team left no chances to the opponent (124-87).
Despite the absence of Boyan Bogdanovich and Ed Davis, the “musicians” demonstrate an excellent game. Mike Conley, Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell are worth highlighting. In the last match, the trio destroyed the Nuggets' defensive redoubts with 71 points for three and 18 rebounds.

After the restart, Denver is plagued by setbacks. Important players are injured in this team all the time. For example, Will Barton is not playing now. Also questionable is the appearance on the floor of Gary Harris. It seemed that the absence of two players is a small loss, but the rest are not doing their best either. Jamal Murray and Paul Millsap are playing below their capabilities and it is difficult for Nicola Jokic alone to carry the whole team.
It looks like Denver is in a big crisis right now. Mike Malone's players have lost 6 of their last 8 matches and won their two victories with great difficulty in overtime.
Denver has again roster problems. Even if Murray wakes up, it is unlikely that he and Jokic will be able to oppose the "jazzmen" on equal terms. "Musicians" look now like a single whole and easily pass the protective redoubts of "nuggets". Their game is more interesting, so Utah players should be preferred.
Our prediction is the victory of Utah, taking into account the overtime for the coefficient of 1.85 in BC 1xBet
