Why the Nuggets can cover

Guard Murray (questionable) is a crisp ball handler and shot creator. Murray can cook in the mid-range or from beyond the arc, and the Kentucky product will also get into the lane to score or find the open man. In the 2024 NBA playoffs, Murray is averaging 20.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 5.9 assists. On May 12, he totaled 19 points, five rebounds, and eight assists.

Forward Aaron Gordon is an athletic, two-way threat who has the leaping ability to finish above the rim with ease and plays pesky defense. The 28-year-old uses his strength and athleticism to be a fierce defender. This postseason, Gordon is putting up 15.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 1.1 steals. In the Game 5 win, he notched 18 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists. See which team to pick here.

Why the Timberwolves can cover 

Guard Anthony Edwards will need to elevate his game to a different level to get his team back on track. Edwards continues to be one of the most athletic playmakers, scoring at will and soaring to the basket. The 22-year-old averages a team-high 30.6 points with 6.2 rebounds and six assists per game in the postseason. In Game 4, Edwards racked up 44 points and five assists.

Forward Karl-Anthony Towns is a skilled player in the frontcourt. Towns has a reliable jumper and will put the ball on the deck to score around the rim. The Kentucky product also provides the Timberwolves with an effective rebounder. He logs 19.3 points, 8.6 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per contest in the playoffs. In his last game, Towns had 23 points, six boards, and four assists. See which team to pick here.
