Denver Nuggets vs Phoenix Suns Prediction
In the first round of the West Conference, they won 4-2 in series against Portland Trail Blazers. On the other side, Phoenix Suns defeated Los Angles Lakers, 2019-20 season champs, with 4-2.
Phoenix Suns recorded two wins at home against Denver Nuggets in the first two games of the West Conference semifinal. First, they won 122-105, while they recorded another win (123-98). The Suns played with a much bigger pace in both matches, with an almost perfect ball movement. In the second game, everything was decided already in the third quarter, when the home side had more than 20 points. Devin Booker was the best for the winning side with 18 points and ten rebounds, while Chris Paul had 17 points and 15 assists. On the other side, Nikola Jokic was the only Nugget worth mentioning (24 points, 13 boards, six dimes).
Phoenix Suns showed two times that they are much better than Denver Nuggets, so I expect them to win in the third game.
In the second game, Denver Nuggets have a lot of problems making outside shots. Phoenix Suns limited them to only 14 from 43 from the three points line. Also, the Nuggets' young star, Michael Porter Jr., made only three of 13 shots. He has to improve in the next game if Denver wants to have some chances to beat the Suns.
