Phoenix Suns vs Denver Nuggets Betting Preview and Prediction | NBA Playoffs
NBA Western Conference Semifinals NBA Playoffs Game 3 (PHO leads 2-0)
Phoenix Suns (51-21, 24-12 Away) vs. Denver Nuggets (47-25, 26-16 Home)
Date: Friday, June 11, 2021
Start Time: 9 p.m. EST
Venue: Ball Arena — Denver, CO
Nikola Jokic’s MVP party in Game 2 was ruined by a masterful performance by Chris Paul. Jokic still managed 24 points, 13 rebounds and six assists. However, Chris Paul turned in 17 points and 15 assists. What is more impressive is that Paul had ZERO turnovers in the game.
The Suns seem to have even more of an edge after bouncing the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Nuggets seem as though they simply do not have the firepower to keep up. The Nuggets desperately need to get back to Ball Arena, where the high altitude and home crowd should help boost them in Game 3. Ultimately, the momentum is with the Suns though.
