How will Austin Rivers perform in Game 1 against Phoenix?

TNT will host Monday’s second round NBA playoff matchup between the Denver Nuggets and Phoenix Suns with tip set for 10:00 p.m. ET. The game will take place at the Phoenix Suns Arena.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this NBA playoff matchup, you can stream the game on Watch TNT or via their mobile app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access TNT for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.

The Nuggets squeaked by the Portland Trail Blazers in a seven-game first-round series and Nikola Jokic was outright ridiculous shooting the basketball. He averaged 33 points and 10.5 rebounds on 52.8% shooting. Jokic didn’t do it all alone, though. Michael Porter Jr. averaged 18.8 points per game on 53.5% shooting while Austin Rivers, Facundo Campazzo, and Monte Morris shared point guard duties against one of the NBA’s best scoring backcourts. Points won’t be as easy to come by against Phoenix though. Beating the team that knocked out the Western Conference favorites is bound to be challenging.

Misfortune struck the Suns early when Chris Paul suffered a shoulder injury, but he was able to bounce back and impact the series despite being limited as a scorer. DeAndre Ayton rattled off four straight double-doubles to begin the series and Devin Booker looked like the best player on the court in a couple of games that included LeBron James and Anthony Davis. That’s no small feat, and Suns role-players like Cam Payne and Jae Crowder make Phoenix the full package.
