In the NBA playoffs, we will see San Antonio Spurs at Denver Nuggets.
Denver had a phenomenal season- such season that no one expected. Nikola Jokic became a force in the NBA with his passing abilities for a big man. He is leading the team with 20 points, 10.8 rebounds and 7.3 assists per game. Jamal Murray, on the other side, is helping the team with 18.2 points and 4.8 assists per game. The team, as a whole, is playing very well at home but they are not as good on the road.
The San Antonio Spurs did not have a good season, according to their standards but they did well to get to the postseason without Parker, Ginobili, and Duncan. A big reason for this is the acquisition of DeMar DeRozan who replaced Kawhi Leonard during the summer. LaMarcus Aldridge continues to the vocal point of the offense as he is the leading scorer with 21.3 points per game and 9.2 rebounds.
The Nuggets are clearly the more talented team and they have a very dynamic offense. San Antonio, on the side, has the experience at their disposal. We have often seen such games which can be decided by the experience and I expect game 1 to be much closer than most people think. San Antonio may even pull off an upset in game 1.
