The NBA is back in action as the Denver Nuggets will clash with the Utah Jazz.
We have reached a win or go home situation in the Western Conference playoffs down in the Sunshine State. Denver Nuggets are heading into this game hoping to force a winner take all Game 7.
Denver Nuggets Form
The Nuggets need to win this game in order to stay in this series. They are heading into this game after a solid win in their last game. Denver led by one after the opening quarter, trailed by nine at the half and by 12 late in the third quarter. However, the crucial moments came later on as the Nuggets outscored the Jazz 35-21 in the fourth to earn the victory and stay alive. They had the in-form Jamal Murray as their talisman led the team with 42 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in the victory. He scored 33 points in the second half.
On the offensive side of the game, the Nuggets score an average of 114.2 points per game. And that is the 6th offensive record in the league. Also, they have an average of 41 boards per game combined with 22.4 assists per night.
Utah Jazz Form
The Jazz have a great opportunity to progress with a win in this game. Moreover, they have been playing well but they fell short as they lost the last game against Denver. They were the better team in the first half. However, they were outscored 35-21 in the 4th period and therefore lost the game. Donovan Mitchell led the Jazz with 30 points plus five assists in the loss.
On the offensive side of the game, the Jazz score an average of 121.8 points per contest. Therefore, that is 2nd best offensive record in the NBA. Also, they have an average of 42 boards per contest and are seventh by dishing out 22.8 assists per game.
The Nuggets fought back in game 5 and earned a well-deserved victory. However, the reality is that Murray pretty much carried the team on his back in Game 5 in the second half. Also, they will be without Will Barton III leave and Gary Harris is still questionable for this one. Therefore, Utah has a chance to win this one.
