Prop Pick

The Nuggets have a 3-2 lead against the Timberwolves, with two of their wins happening at Target Center in Minneapolis. That’s the venue where Game 6 will take place this evening, which is what’s giving the Nuggets a lot of hope they can get the job done and qualify for the Western Conference Final.

Another reason why the reigning champions should feel optimistic about today’s game is that their key men are in top shape right now. This goes especially for the three-time NBA MVP Nikola Jokic who scored 40 points in the previous game.

It was his highest-scoring performance since scoring 41 against the Timberwolves in the regular season. It seems that the Serbian center knows how to deal with these guys, but we mustn’t forget that Minnesota is the NBA’s best defense.

The Wolves need to show it if they want to stay in the series. They need to stop Jokic from going crazy with scoring. We think they might pull it off, which is why our Nuggets at Timberwolves prop pick is Jokic under 29.55 points.
