Denver Nuggets Form

Denver head back to Minnesota knowing they will advance to the conference semi-finals if they win in the ‘Twin Cities’ for the third time in this series.

The Nuggets, who went 57-25 in the regular season to finish second in the Western Conference, eased through the first round as they won four of their five meetings with the Los Angeles Lakers.

They dug themselves into an early hole in this series though, as they lost back-to-back home games against Minnesota, 106-99 and 106-80.

Denver stopped the rot on the road though, beating the Timberwolves 117-90 before knotting up the series at 2-2 with a 115-107 victory.

The Nuggets then returned home to take the lead in the series for the first time, riding an epic performance from Nikola Jokic to a 112-97 victory.

Minnesota Timberwolves Form

Minnesota return home on the brink of elimination following three consecutive defeats to Denver.

The Timberwolves, who went 56-26 in the regular season, sent a message to their rivals in the opening round of the playoffs as they swept Phoenix in four games.

They then kept that red-hot run going in the early stages of this series with defending champions Denver.

Minnesota went out on the road for the first two games and beat the Nuggets twice, winning 106-99 and 106-80 to take command of the series.

However, the Timberwolves surrendered the series lead at home, losing 117-90 and 115-107, and then went back to Denver to lose 112-97, leaving them one game away from going out.

Verdict

Denver have turned around this series and now lead thanks to Nikola Jokic’s monster Game 5.

Momentum is firmly with them and they already have three wins in Minnesota this season, so give us the Nuggets and the free bucket.
