Nuggets literally stole game one after a clutch three from Jamal Murray to tie the game within the last twenty seconds to send it into overtime. Once it reached overtime the Nuggets couldn’t be stopped as Murray and Nikola Jokic ran the pick and roll game for the entire 5-minute overtime period, no other nugget scored.
Donovan Mitchell had a franchise-record 57 points in a playoff game on Monday for the Jazz. He will need to repeat that production and then some if they are going to outscore the Nuggets. Jazz are now 0-4 on the season series with Nuggets and will try to bounce back in their fifth meeting.
The Jazz shot 47.4 percent from the field, including 16 of 47 from three-point range in game one , but turned the ball over 15 times. One turnover was very costly as Donovan Mitchell was called for an eight-second violation and the Nuggets came back the other way and tied it with a three with less than thirty seconds to go.
Utah is averaging 111.48 points per game, ranking them third overall in points scored per game. They concede an average of 109.19 points, ranking them 10th in the NBA at points allowed.
Mike Conley should return for game three of this series as he currently quarantining after the birth of his child.
Jamal Murray was the hero in game one as he scored 18 of his 36 points in either the fourth quarter or overtime. He caught fire and couldn’t be stopped for the last 17 minutes of the game. Jokic had a nice performance too pouring on 29 points and grabbed himself 10 rebounds.
The Nuggets are averaging 111.61 points this season, which is good for 18th in the NBA. They allow an average of 109.39 points per game, ranking them 11th overall.
Gary Harris is out for Wednesday’s game and should return by next week.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
Donovan Mitchell was upset he wasn’t able to push his team to victory on Monday. I like the Jazz here to make a real push at Denver and tie the series. I think the Jazz could easily upset the Nuggets in this series. but tomorrow game 2 will be pivotal for the Jazz.
