Analyzing Nuggets’ Potential Playoff Seeding on The Final Night of The Regular Season
Denver All-Star Nikola Jokic posted the fourth triple-double in Nuggets playoff history, with 10 points, 14 assists and 14 rebounds.
Reserve guard Austin Rivers raised some eyebrows after a March 28 rout of the Denver Nuggets when he declared that the Rockets would win a championship if they continued to play elite defense. "He's so good offensively it makes me laugh". "I don't care how many minutes you play or whatever". This isn't the matchup any Jazz fan was hoping for or wanted, but it apparently was the one the basketball gods wished for as the final two days of the NBA regular season were nothing but pure chaos to produce this result.
The Houston Rockets can take a comfortable 2-0 series lead with a victory here.
"The third quarter we got some stops and we didn't get shots on the other end and that's tough to overcome", Jazz coach Quin Snyder said.
DeRozan powered the Spurs with 18 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists. "If you get five turnovers, you have to look at yourself in the mirror and figure out how to adjust". He had 43 points and 12 rebounds in a 125-98 win at Utah on February 2 the last time the clubs met.
Utah is the 5 seed in the West and the Jazz have won eight of their last 10 to close the regular season while going 4-1 against the spread over their last five games.
Despite his absence - and losing by 20 at home against Toronto on Tuesday night - the Timberwolves led 95-84 when Reynolds hit his fifth 3-pointer with 4:02 left in the game.
Utah finished just 7-for-27 on 3-pointers and committed 19 turnovers. Their last lead came with four minutes left in the first quarter but they trimmed a 12-point deficit to one in the closing minutes.
For the Nuggets, who finished with the second best record in the Western Conference; yesterday was their chance to show the doubters that they are for real and can compete with the Golden State Warriors, but the Spurs showed them the importance of having an experienced team come playoff time. The Nuggets held San Antonio to 13 points in the third quarter but managed just 17 themselves. He also correctly read what the Jazz was planning to do and just dished to the open shooters to put up the same amount of points they were trying to prevent in the first place. Jae Crowder was the only player to contribute more than five points while three players went scoreless.
