Denver Nuggets vs Phoenix Suns – 18h00 03/24/2022 [PT]: Show of strength.
Denver and the Clippers contributed to a very professional game of the day, winning the final thanks to their bravery in the key moments. The Miners will have a visit to the Phoenix Suns in the next match, it will certainly not be an easy match when the opponent is the hegemon on the West Coast. The performance of the Suns is gradually returning to its inherent stability, although the case of Chris Paul is still unanswered, they will of course be more appreciated than the home team in the upcoming encounter.
The Denver Nuggets are currently in 6th place in the Western standings with 43 wins in 73 games. The difference is only 1 match against the Timberwolves behind, so the pressure for every match of Joker and his teammates is still great, when just one mistake can make them drift down to the Playin area at any time. The Phoenix Suns are on a streak of 5 consecutive victories since White Valentine’s Day, winning 8 of the last 10 matches. Despite the lack of CP3 in the roster, their reserves still have quality elements that can make up for it and probably won’t have problems until the end of the season.

The Denver Nuggets have always been evaluated as an underdog against the Phoenix Suns in recent years, at last season’s Playoff series, the Gorillas beat the opponent with an absolute score of 4-0. Things are somewhat better this season with Denver, when each team has had a win since the beginning of the season. The recent period has not been smooth for Jokic and his teammates, when they only won 3 of the last 7 matches and often lost to opponents in the top 6 in both regions. Their strength is coming from the uniformity in the squad, as the match against the Clippers in the last round saw up to 7 players scoring over 10 points the whole match. Of course, Jokic’s form will still greatly affect Denver’s overall performance, he has just had 30 points and completed his 59th Double Double this season in the last match. On the side of the Phoenix Suns, CP3 and Cam Johnson’s injuries caused them to lose two important players in the defensive position. But the performance of Payne or Shamet still brings positive signals before the upcoming visit to Denver. Suns will be the team to win the last in the 3rd clash against the opponent this season.
The Denver Nuggets have improved their scoring ability in the last 10 matches with an average of 118 points per game, in return, their defense is no longer as stable as before. Meanwhile, the Phoenix Suns still possess the best offensive ability in the entire NBA in the final period of the season, scoring an average of 121.8 points. The upcoming important confrontation can bring the match to the Over, when the home team’s attack will cause many difficulties for the Gorillas.
