Obviously a lot has happened since the last time these teams took the floor. What hasn’t changed is that the Nuggets have their back against the wall, facing elimination. Denver extended its season with a 10 point win in game five but was that enough to get the momentum back?
Utah needs to show some resilience here. After back to back to back wins they suffered a loss, but if you throw in the overtime loss in game one you could make an argument that they were close to sweeping the series. This will be a test for sure.
They played a good game in game five but were. for obvious reasons not quite as desperate as their opponents. Rudy Gobert played over 40 minutes, something he never did in a non-overtime game all season long so some extra rest will be very helpful.
Donovan Mitchell continues to have a great series. He has scored 30 or more in four of the five wins and the only one he didn’t was their blowout win in game three.
Mike Conley is back and productive. He did not make a splash like he did in his playoff debut but he is playing well.
Denver beat back elimination with a 10 point win in game five. It was basically a two-man show with Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray combining for 73 points. Similar to Gobert above they both played heavy minutes and will benefit from a little extra rest.
Michael Porter Jr. came off the bench and was the third leading scorer for Denver with 15 points. As a result he was +18 for the game and was a part of their best unit. Finding his best role has been critical for Denver.
Gary Harris is still questionable and at this point it is debatable how much of a lift he can give the team. Especially since Murray is taking so many shots, though he would help guard Mitchell.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
The Nuggets are facing elimination again. There is no homecourt to rally the team but they have to have more confidence than they did going into game five. I liked the way they leaned on their stars, that is what you do in the playoffs. I think they can do it again and force a game seven.
