This is what NBA fans live for — Game 7 with everything on the line. Thanks to Jamal Murray and another 50 point performance that’s what fans will be entertained with as either the Denver Nuggets or Utah Jazz will move on to face the LA Clippers in the Western Conference semi-finals.
Momentum is a crazy tangible quality in sports. The Jazz had a stranglehold on the first-round series up 3-1 and arguably could’ve swept the Nuggets considering they lost the opening game of the series in overtime.
Yet, the team holding the momentum now is the Nuggets who’ve won two in a row as their stars are shining bright and seem to have figured out the right tweaks to gain that advantage.
In Game 6, with a second opportunity to clinch the series the Jazz jumped out to an early 10-point lead but the Nuggets battled back to take the lead before the half and never looked back.
Donovan Mitchell continues to showcase the step he’s taken as he posted 44 points in the losing effort. Rudy Gobert delivered a double-double of 11 points and 11 rebounds.
Mike Conley (21), Jordon Clarkson (11), and George Niang (10) were the other double-figure scorers.
Prior to this series, most analysts considered Donovan Mitchell an elite level star but Jamal Murray still was being questioned. Two 50-point efforts with a 42-point effort sandwiched in the middle have shifted the questions to certainties — Murray is a star!
Nikola Jokic perfectly complemented Murray with 22 points and nine assists. Jerami Grant (18) and Monte Morris (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Gary Harris made his series debut and got the unenviable task of helping guard Mitchell. Still, his presence with the reserve unit offers the Nuggets a great, athletic, change of pace crew.
That group doesn’t score a ton, but they force the Jazz to adapt enough that it gives Denver an advantage.
NBA Betting Trends:

Free Utah Jazz vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
It’s been an intriguing series with the opposing stars each producing two 50-point games once in a loss and once in a win. Both can claim records in this final game.
The first-round scoring record requires 10 points from Mitchell and 37 from Murray so will likely go to the former while either can overtake Stephen Curry with two more 3-pointers for the single series record which is currently 32.
As for the teams, a Nuggets win would equate to the 12th team to come back from 1-3 in a series while the Jazz would end their record of never losing when up 3-1 in a series.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nuggets -1
Either star could light it up but ultimately it feels like the winner of the Jokic vs. Gobert battle and which bench performs best will win the game.
Given the depth of Denver and their momentum – I’m going with the Nuggets.
