In-Game 3 of the first round of the NBA playoffs, the Utah Jazz conquered Denver Nuggets. Mike Conley scored a team-high 27 points for his team Utah Jazz and made his return in style, making a huge statement. There’s no denying that it was an embarrassing, and big loss for the Denver Nuggets as the opponent took an impressive 2-1 lead in the total 7 series. 

Let’s discuss their match performance one by one! 

Utah Jazz Preview

The Utah Jazz told us why they are called the best. Three games till now, and they won the tie comfortably with a whopping 27 points difference. Quin Snyder, the head coach of Utah, now has the chance to send his star players to the rest in the fourth match. 

Mike Conley, the star point guard, made his comeback to the NBA bubble in a style that stunned everyone out there. He made seven out of his eight 3's in the game and played some superb defense. The team, Utah Jazz, is looking forward to winning the fourth game and standing a place in the second round of the NBA playoffs.

The Game Changer 

When it comes to the game changer, nothing could outperform ‘Donovan Mitchell’. In the playoffs’ series, he has been the best player for the Utah Jazz against the Denver Nuggets. After showcasing his skills and talent in the game, Donovan successfully played the role of a facilitator for his team in games two and three. His exceptional decision-making skills led the whole team to the victory. 

Utah Jazz Predicted Lineup for Game Four

The team’s predicted lineup includes Mike Conley, Donovan Mitchell, Joe Ingles, Royce O'Neale, and Rudy Gobert. 

Denver Nuggets Preview

After facing many losses and falling behind in the lead, Mike Malone, the head coach, now has to revisit and make the right adjustments to triumph in the fourth game. Since they already were outplayed by the Utah Jazz in two and three games, they don’t want to lose another one. 

If they want to win the series and advance to the second round of the NBA playoffs, the Denver Nuggets have to channelize their strategy in the right direction. Star players Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray might be feeling under pressure as they have to perform in the absence of starters Gary Harris and Will Barton. 

Key Player 

Nikola Jokic wasn’t able to do something big against Utah Jazz in game three as he was struggling to make shots during the entire match. And the worst thing is that his defensive match-up Rudy Gobert messed up his game and Jokic failed to do something for his team, Denver Nuggets. 

There’s no arguing with the fact that Nikola Jokic is an All-Star and an All-NBA caliber player but if they want to win the next match, they need to fire all cylinders in game four against Utah Jazz.

Denver Nuggets Predicted Lineup

The team’s predicted lineup includes Michael Porter Jr., Jamal Murray, Torrey Craig, Nikola Jokic, and Paul Millsap. 

Utah Jazz vs. Denver Nuggets- Match Prediction

It could be said that the Utah Jazz, after two consecutive victories, will be riding high on confidence and looking to get a hat-trick of wins against the Denver Nuggets side in the fourth game. 

It’s now become incredibly important for the Denver Nuggets to win the upcoming game. If they, however, lose the next two games, then they would be eliminated from the NBA playoffs. Talk about the fans’ perspective, they are seeing Utah Jazz to win this game.
