The Nuggets came away as the victors after Game 6 of their first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers, but their road to the NBA Finals has gotten a lot more challenging. Denver fell to Phoneix 122-105 in Game 1 of the second round, and it struggled on both ends in the first installment of the matchup. Nikola Jokic struggled to impact the offense because of the spectacular defense from Deandre Ayton. The impending NBA MVP’s teammates had no success at stopping Suns starters from scoring efficiently, and they combined for 99 points on 59% shooting. A bounce-back game from Jokic will be key to the Nuggets making a comeback, but getting stops will be just as important.
Phoenix isn’t showing sign of slowing down after knocking off the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round, and Chris Paul’s banged-up shoulder appears to be coming along nicely. The Suns floor general put together his best performance of the playoffs by scoring 21 points to go along with 11 assists and 6 rebounds. Three of his fellow starters scored at least 20 points in game 2, and Mikal Bridges unexpectedly led all players with 23 points. It’ll be hard to take down Phoenix when its firing on all cylinders.
