Denver Nuggets vs Memphis Grizzlies.
Ball Arena (Pepsi Center), Denver, USA.
Denver can't exhale yet, Minnesota have yet to catch up with Jokic's team, but the game against a bright and feisty team from Memphis might knock the team down a notch.Get Your Welcome Bonus!
On the question of whether one man can carry a team
Yes, he can. Nikola Jokic is a direct confirmation of that: 27 points, 13.7 rebounds and 7.9 points for the whole season.
Denver need to win their remaining two games to stay in sixth place in the Western Conference and move directly into the playoffs. The team has lost twice in the three games they played in April, which made their position more precarious. Tonight's game against a very tough opponent could make or break the position for Mike Malone's team, so the game will be as interesting as possible.
Utah snapped a seven-game winning streak for Memphis
Memphis won't drop their second straight game and it's not entirely clear what to expect from the team, but Taylor Jenkins' men should be able to play to their potential.
Ja Morant and Dillon Brooks were absent from the last game, but that was enough to push the game to overtime. So, even without their leaders, Memphis can make any opponent take a beating.
