Nuggets vs Warriors

Odds  and  Predictions

denver nuggets

Strengths

With Denver's injuries they've relied on an MVP-level Jokic, who's main stats are; accuracy, assists, and rebounds. He is carrying this team. 

1. FG Accuracy 2. Assists 3. Rebounds

Nikola Jokic- (C) 27.1 PTS, 7.9 AST, 65% 2p. The offense runs through Jokic, who is having an MVP level year. 

DENVER NUGGETS

Weaknesses

Denver struggles to defend in the paint, lacks pace, and can't create turnovers. When the center leads in steals, that's not a good sign. 

1. Turnover Creation 2. Offensive Output 3. Paint Defense

Golden State Warriors

Strengths

Steph Curry is a beast but the story this year is all about the defense. The Warriors are stout in every category and get tons of steals. 

1. Defense 2. Steals 3. FG %

Steph Curry- (G) 25.5 PTS, 6.3 AST,1.3 STL, 38% 3P. Curry reset his shooting form mid-season and is hot coming into the playoffs.

weaknesses

The Warriors are a turnover machine, they foul too much, and they can go cold on offense. Their defense wins them tight games. 

1. Ball Security 2. Personal Fouls 3. Offensive output

Golden State Warriors

INJURIES

Curry is expected to play game 1 

Steph curry - foot

Andrew Wiggins - Back

Wiggins' back injury is day to day and he is questionable for game 1

Nikola Jokick - Wrist

Jokic is dealing with a recurring wrist injury and is day to day. 

ODDS

The Nuggets have exceeded expectations by making it this far, but Jokic's wrist injury may prove too much, at least for game 1. Expect GSW to take this first game handily. 

GSW -6.5

Prediction

Nuggets 110 - Warriors 120
