Denver Nuggets Betting

The Denver Nuggets were jumped early by the Jazz during Game 3 and they were outplayed in all the four quarters. Nikola Jokic led the team with 28 points, 11 rebounds and six assists while Michael Porter Jr. also contributed with 28 points along with six boards and six three-pointers. Jamaal Murray logged in 30 minutes but had a subpar night with 14 points, four assists and three rebounds. Monte Morris had a notable night with 10 points off the bench but there is much more expected from Jerami Grant who only tallied 8 points. Paul Millsap and Torrey Craig also need to produce better if they want to have a good chance of keeping it close with Utah.
