Nuggets: Entering the playoffs, the Nuggets were expected to be one of the top contenders in the Western Conference. However, Denver fell behind 3-1 in the series, but managed to extend its season with an impressive victory in Game 5. The Nuggets are going to need the combination of Nikola Jokic and Murray to shoulder the offensive load once again if they want to force a Game 7.
Jazz: Over the course of the series, Mitchell has averaged 37.6 points per contest, which included a 57-point performance in Game 1 and a 51-point outburst in Game 4. If the Jazz want to close out this series, they're going to need Mitchell to continue to pour it in on the offensive end.
The Nuggets face a must-win scenario for the second consecutive game. Considering that they played so well with their backs against the wall, it's certainly not crazy to think that it could happen again. Look for Murray to be aggressive out of the gate once again and the Nuggets force a Game 7. Pick: Nuggets +2
