“Super Splash Brothers” put nuggets in a box!

Nuggets reply. They were able to count on Nikola Jokic’s concert, on the producing bench, on the aggressive Aaron Gordon last, and on 42% of the 3-point speech. They also dominated the offensive rebound but their defense once again took hold of the water against the Warriors who distributed 29 passes and scored 55% of their shots for a decisive advantage in the series.

Despite Mike Malone’s defensive adjustment that started with Aaron Gordon on the Jordan Bowl, the Warriors, like Klay Thompson, started with great fanfare. Golden State races to the top but 12 points from Nikola Jokic and a good return to Austin River – de Marcos Cousins ​​allowed the Nuggets to hold on (34-32).

His cousins ​​assure his good passing but the warriors are rude in rhetoric. 3/3 behind on 3 points Gary Payton II, passes 14-4 to their opponent (61-49). Three losing balls from Stephen Curry allowed Denver to strike back 10-2 but the double MVP redeemed himself with a winning shot and a 2+1 to put his side at +10 (69-59).

Back at the wall, the Nuggets start the third quarter with a 21-6 lead behind titled Will Barton and Monty Morris, the impact of Nikola Jokic, and a defense that finally slows the Warriors (80-75). Without panicking, the “Splash Brothers” responded with 7-0 but the Californians’ numerous ball losses allow Bones Hyland to keep the Nuggets ahead (89-87).

A 2+1 from Poole followed by two new award-winning pieces from Klay Thompson immediately put Golden State back on top with six minutes to play (103-99). Then the Jokic party takes responsibility and reverses direction. Denver is two points ahead but the Warriors defense raises the tone. Behind the ubiquitous Draymond Green holding the Nuggets for over three minutes as Andrew Wiggins, Jordan Poole and Stephen Curry adapted the Forever Ball Arena!

What to remember

Mike Malone’s defensive modifications. If the Nuggets’ first adjustment came from the first second of the match with Aaron Gordon on Jordan Paul and Monty Morris on Klay Thompson, it was above all the use of Nikola Jokic, very low in the pick and roll in the first two matches, that had the biggest impact. The Serbian hub was aggressive on screen tonight to prevent Paul, Carey and Thompson from getting their shots. We’ve also seen Jokic on Gary Payton II to be able to help, but it’s their aggressiveness on the carrier and in the pick-ups that made the warriors’ lives more difficult.

– Second Denver knives respond present. The saying goes that in play-offs, substitutes always play better at home. This rule was confirmed last night for Nuggets. Mike Malone was able to count on 31 points from his bench as Aaron Gordon finally entered his series by being aggressive towards the circuit and using Golden State’s disrespect for his outside shot to take a cue from Draymond Green and screens to release his teammates.

– The Curry – Poole – Thompson’s trio once again and always so strong! Despite Denver’s good game, their defense still struggled against the Super Splash Brothers. As in the first two matches, Stephen Curry, Jordan Paul and Klay Thompson drove the opponent’s defense crazy. Thompson in particular found the target whenever Denver seemed ready to make the break. Before the start of the series, we learned that the Nuggets have no miraculous solution against the Warriors’ back base and that the latter never stops exposing their opponent’s limits.

tops/swings

✅ Stephen Curry. Once again in the role of the deluxe sixth man, the double MVP continued his momentum in Game 2 by scoring 27 points with over 50% success in 30 minutes. He lost 4 balls but made 6 assists.

✅ Jordan Paul. Like his leader, Jordan Paul also added 27 points on 9 of 13 in shots. He was decisive in the last quarter of the time and easily played in Aaron Gordon’s defense.

✅ Klay Thompson. Another “Splash Brother” was fantastic, scoring 26 points on 6 of 13 from distance. He also finished with over 50% payout success.

✅ Draymond Green. Always present on both sides of the field again, he finished it off with 10 assists and plenty of crucial defensive stops on Nikola Jokic in the final three minutes.

✅ Nikola Jokic. Serbia tried everything. He scored 37 points in 14 of 22 shots, was aggressive, hit 18 rebounds, and provided 5 assists, but that was not enough to provide victory for his team.

Monte Morris Will Barton. The Nuggets back base finished 9 for 24 in shots and lacked the effect to balance the Golden State trio.

Andrew Wiggins. After two good games, Andrew Wiggins came back tonight again but scored an award winning decisive shot to put the Warriors ahead in the final minutes.
