Denver Nuggets: 3 Reasons They’ll Win the Championship

Spurs upset Jokic, No. 2 Nuggets

"Do what it takes to help the team win". He scored 10 points, collecting 14 rebounds and had 14 assists. Fortunately, the Rockets immediately went on a 10-0 run and the game was quickly back in hand, but those slow stretches have haunted the Rockets this season and could have cost them on Sunday.

"He was spectacular", Popovich said.

"I was dissappointed I turned it over, but just tried to move to the next play", White said. Houston scored just 99 points per 100 possessions against the Jazz, its lowest output against a Western Conference opponent. "I don't care what you do".

Previous year in the Rockets conference semifinal triumph over the Jazz, Paul was second on the team in scoring (24.6 points per game), he was second on the team in rebounding (7.0 rebounds per game) and second on the team in assists (6.2 assists per game.) His ability to knock down shots from the midrange and find those shots as Jazz closed out on the shooters was invaluable in the Rockets making quick work of Utah. Donovan Mitchell has been leading the team with 23.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game. Both clubs come into the NBA Playoffs 2019 with momentum, as Houston won 11 of its last 14, while Utah finished with a 13-3 mark in its final 16 regular-season contests. Bryn Forbes has developed into a reliable shooting guard and LaMarcus Aldridge is still a force on the post. "If you get five turnovers, you have to look at yourself in the mirror and figure out how to adjust". "That's huge", he said.

Rubio missed the final three games of the regular season as he nursed a quad injury, and there are thoughts he could miss extended time in this series. They'll also face the Houston Rockets in a seven-game series, albeit a round earlier than last year's five-game series. Even more questionable was Harden's three attempts, for the guy who led the league in that category.

Shooting 50.5 percent from the field and 36.6 percent from beyond the arc on 15 makes, the Rockets registered their second-biggest postseason win (32) in franchise history. The over is 3-1-1 in Rockets last 5 overall.

Carano is Kara Dune, "an ex-rebel shock trooper", who fought in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars . The show looked like a high-caliber production that shouldn't be ignored just because it's hidden on a streaming app.

Derrick Favors has been one of the top post defenders in the National Basketball Association this season, but his health could be an issue in this series. Malone said he would take that same shot from Murray to win the game again. Hall of Famer and former Rocket Hakeem Olajuwon watched the game from a courtside seat. However, Denver missed open 3-pointers on four subsequent possessions with a chance to tie it.

Capela played despite dealing with an upper respiratory infection that kept him out of practice two days this week. I know I'll have another opportunity in Game 2.

"It was hard", he said.

"Yeah, I mean, I probably started the game off a little too excited".

"I was just pushing it and nobody stopped ball so [I was] attacking and try to make a play at the rim", said White, who wanted to focus on the playoff game and thus limited his friends and family members to a total of 10 tickets for his homecoming.
