This is awesome because essentially this is a winner take all battle for the playoffs. Minnesota gets the advantage of being at home but the momentum might be on the other side. Denver has been in desperation mode for the last couple of weeks and it is has brought out the best in them.
Minnesota was never supposed to be in this position and you have to wonder how they are going to respond. Both teams are relying on players that do not have a lot of experience in these kinds of situations.
I like this Denver team. They play an exciting style and I like that even though they are a pace and space team their best player is their biggest player. Nikola Jokic is fantastic and we should look forward to battles between him and Karl-Anthony Towns for the next decade. The question is whether this group is really ready to win.
There is no tomorrow so the Nuggets got Gary Harris back into the lineup for their Monday win over Portland. He was moving pretty good scoring 12 points in 18 minutes. He is their second leading scorer and thus important.
I think I might have been too quick on Jokic. He is literally a monster leading the team in scoring, assists, rebounding, blocks and steals. He has had back to back triple doubles and was one rebound away from three in row. Plus he is not even super athletic.
Paul Milsap return has been up and down. Some nights you can easily see why they invested in him and on others he looks a little slow. Still he is a threat to score every time he in on the floor and provides more space for Jokic and others as a result.
I am really excited for this contest and just hope we get a good overall effort from the Nuggets. They have been playing too well to just flame out.
If Minnesota doesn’t make the playoffs they are going to be in big trouble. I know they had some injuries this season but if Towns and Wiggins are stars that should be enough to get the team in. Heck New Orleans lost their numbers two and they are still going to make it in. The fear is that maybe those two can’t be the foundation. Is that too harsh?
I do like the secondary pieces on this team though. Taj Gibson can play on any team and he fits in beautifully. They might not have him for this critical matchup though. Style wise they might not miss him a ton but he is definitely the type you want if you are going into battle.
This one could come down to coaching and Tom Thibodeau just hasn’t been able to maximize with these guys. Also, I didn’t notice but Minnesota has picked up old Thibs favourite Derrick Rose. I am not sure he can really help them but I guess we will see. Jimmy Butler is there too of course but his impact has not been felt the way many thought it would.

Free Denver Nuggets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
I think Minnesota will be the favourite here at home. They have to be or else too much money will pile in on them.
They still might be the more public side given their star power and the preseason narrative.
