Who said that the Nuggets are history? Game 5 is on the menu tonight, and the team from Denver has a huge morale edge ahead of it, along with the home-court edge. We’ll see whether the Minnesota Timberwolves have an answer for this. 

Before Betting on the Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Denver Nuggets Game 5

Anthony Edwards gave his best in Game 4, but that wasn’t enough for the T-Wolves to stop Jokic and the boys. A 115-107 loss was a massive kick in the teeth for this team because everyone believed that the series was over. It seems that the Wolves had a fear of victory, or they simply underestimated the rivals, who are, by the way, the reigning NBA champions. 

They did controll the glass, having 42 boards compared to only 31 of the Nuggets. Also, Minnesota had six double-digit point players but only one with more than 15 points, which was Edwards, with 44 buckets. KAT had a double-double with 13 points and 12 boards, shooting 5-for-18. 

As for the Nuggets, Jokic was the man, but the one who was an X-factor was Aaron Gordon. He had 27 points, seven boards and six assists, with two blocks, while shooting 11-for-12 from the field. Unreal. That’s why everybody talked about his performance, not Joker’s 35 points. 

Jokic also had seven assists and boards, each with three steals. Jamal Murray fired up the team with a half-court halftime buzzer-beater. He was pretty poor at the start but caught the rhythm later, ending with 19 points and eight assists. Players off the bench had especially notable roles: Justin Holiday, 10 points, and Christian Braun, 11.
