The Denver Nuggets and Golden State Warriors meet Monday in Game 2 of the NBA Playoffs at the Chase Center. The Denver Nuggets look for a win to even up the series at 1-1. The Golden State Warriors have a chance to take a quick 2-0 series lead here.
The Denver Nuggets are averaging 107 points on 46.2 percent shooting and allowing 123 points on 52.4 percent shooting. Nikola Jokic is averaging 25 points and 10 rebounds, while Will Barton is averaging 24 points and 6 rebounds. Monte Morris is the third double-digit scorer and Bones Hyland is grabbing 2 rebounds. The Denver Nuggets are shooting 31.4 percent from beyond the arc and 76.9 percent from the free throw line.

The Golden State Warriors are averaging 123 points on 52.4 percent shooting and allowing 107 points on 46.2 percent shooting. Jordan Poole is averaging 30 points and 3 assists, while Klay Thompson is averaging 19 points and 3 rebounds. Stephen Curry is the third double-digit scorer and Andrew Wiggins is grabbing 9 rebounds. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 45.7 percent from beyond the arc and 72.4 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 31.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41 rebounds per game.
The Nuggets are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Warriors are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 10-4 in Nuggets last 14 overall. The under is 5-2 in Warriors last 7 overall. The Nuggets are 2-6-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Golden State and 3-10 ATS in the last 13 meetings.
You never want to put too much stock into one game, and Nikola Jokic is capable of playing better, especially when it comes to getting to the line and slowing the game down. However, the Golden State Warriors won the first contest pretty easily, and they didn't even get top production from their best players. Also, the Nuggets struggles defensively particularly in the playoffs is starting to become a trend. If the Nuggets are going to allow the Warriors to get comfortable from deep, this is another game that's going to get ugly. I have to lay the chalk here.
