The Denver Nuggets will be looking to get back into the series after dropping both games to the Phoenix Suns. Chris Paul continues to defy his age as a leader of the Suns and young guns Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton keep producing. League MVP Nikola Jokic will need to step up if Denver wants to take Game 3 at home.
Pick ATS: Nuggets -1.5
Despite getting beat by significant margins in the first two games, the Nuggets are favored to win Game 3 at home. Denver is 2-1 in home games this postseason and should be the pick here. Expect Jokic to have a massive performance.
Player Prop: Nikola Jokic over 47.5 points, rebounds and assists
The Nuggets will operate through their MVP center and Jokic knows he needs to deliver in this game. In three playoff home games, Jokic scored 34, 38 and 38 points. Another performance like that already puts him within striking distance of this line and you know he’s going to pull down rebounds. Denver needs Jokic to get back in the series and this is the game for him to shine.
