Don't Count Out The Denver Nuggets

2019 NBA Playoffs Rockets First Round Schedule Released        #4 Rockets to Host #5 Utah

GOOD COMPANY: DeRozan eclipsed the 1,000-point mark in a Spurs jersey in his 47th game.

What's a whistle?: When Kawhi Leonard was last in a Spurs uniform for the playoffs, he was injured by Zaza Pachulia who stepped in his landing space after he came down from shooting. "So, I think Nikola has a high IQ". "He got a lot of shots for a lot of players, rebounding and also scored a little bit". This should be a hell of a matchup; as we discussed in our preview of the series price, the Jazz should have some betting value here, given their defensive prowess. Popovich was ejected twice in the last few weeks of the regular season for officials neglecting calls that raised tension for onlookers.

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 have played under the total in their last six home games against teams with losing road records and in seven of their last eight home games.

Jazz big man Derrick Favors said it wasn't a matter of the Rockets surprising them with anything unusual, but rather Utah's players not responding well to what they knew was coming. "We had the lead. I've got a wedding ring", Malone joked.

Apparently, so did the Nuggets.

"To be honest, nothing", Jokic said. I know I'll have another opportunity in Game 2.

The comeback gave the Nuggets a measure of momentum heading into their first playoff series since 2012-13. Gary Harris led the way for the Nuggets with 20 followed by Jamal Murray with 17 and Will Barton with 15. Jokic stripped Wiggins and then sank two free throws for a three-point cushion. Dario Saric missed on the other end and Paul Millsap hit another 3-pointer with 1:30 left to pull Denver within two. The Utah Jazz are shooting 25.9 percent from beyond the arc and 85.2 percent from the free throw line.

The Timberwolves quickly stretched it to 11 on a 3-pointer by C.J. Williams and a layup by Wiggins.

Trump calls Muslim lawmaker Ilhan Omar 'out of control' in latest attack
Ilhan Omar-an attack he followed up Monday morning-looked like a call to violence against her-and it's accomplished that mission. Democrats who criticized the president over the tweet defended Omar, with some noting their past disagreements with her.


"He was spectacular", Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said.

"You could tell it was the 82nd game of the year", Torrey Craig said. However, we do have 3 more games to win in order to get to the next round.

The more experienced Paul Millsap will be asked to be the gutty veteran leader that Denver has coveted for so long and may have to set the tone on both ends of the court. "We're going to be prepared for that". The teams meet Tuesday for the sixth time this season. The Timberwolves won that one in overtime in the first final-day play-in game in the National Basketball Association in 21 years, ending a 14-year playoff absence and extending Denver's drought to six seasons. DeRozan shut down any doubt that his game isn't adequate on a playoff level. "Love to find ways to get him more field goal attempts and have him impact with his scoring, but he is going to make the right read".

The Spurs and Nuggets split the regular-season series 2-2, with both teams winning at home.
