Sonly there are two 3-0 in the first round of the NBA Playoffs. That of the Philadelphia 76ers against the Brooklyn Nets, which is as resounding as it is not very validating of the qualities. Because its stars appear in flashes. But the one of the The Denver Nuggets to the Minnesota Timberwolves is a radical turnaround. The best hit. The defense hits. Y Nikola Jokic, Because he’s everything besides a league megastar, he reigns in a series that cheers up the parish of the Colorado state.
The Nuggets know how to read their strengths. It’s something that the best team in the West throughout the regular season should do without a doubt, but since they existed … It must be vindicated. They opened a gap for the Wolves with volume of three -in the first half they chained two from Caldwell-Pope and one from Braun- and a Nikola Jokic who distributes, watches and decides.
Don’t miss a thing with NBA League Pass!
Always. Because when Anthony Edwards turned on the ‘superstar mode’ (36 + 7) -which it is-, he answered in command of the Nuggets. ANDFinding Braun in the corner with a tight 94-91 run in the last period, ‘dancing’ Gobert in the paint, an ‘alley-oop’ to Aaron Gordon, ‘pick and roll’ with Murray and another assist, for the clasp , to Porter Jr. in the corner. Dominant.
“We are not satisfied. I tell guys to be ‘selfish bastards’. We knew there was going to be a crazy atmosphere and we had to understand how to compete in this game,” said Michael Malone, Denver technician. A great speaker among coaches… who explains success in another way.
They must be selfish bastards
But what is happening. It is a tight series, as Anthony Edwards decides games and is capable of winning playoff games. But Denver has the recipe for success. Always compete. Knowing how to understand party contexts. And to a shining star. Jokic, with 20 points, 11 rebounds, 12 assists and an astonishing 9/13 shooting card, commanded again. He is not afraid of heights.
