Why the Nuggets can cover

Center Nikola Jokic is a consistent and dominant difference-maker on the floor. Jokic has soft touch when he’s around the rim or knocking down jumpers on the outside. The three-time NBA MVP owns superb vision and will be active on the glass. In the 2024 NBA playoffs, Jokic leads the team in points (28.2), rebounds (12.9) and assists (8.8). In Game 5, he stuffed the stat sheet with 40 points, seven boards, and 13 assists.

Forward Aaron Gordon provides Denver with an athletic, two-way playmaker. Gordon is always hovering around the rim for dunks and layups. He also has the instincts and strength to be irritating throughout the contest on the defensive end of the floor. In the playoffs, the Gonzaga product is averaging 15.3 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per contest. In Game 5, Gordon had 18 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists. See which team to pick here

Why the Timberwolves can cover 

Guard Anthony Edwards has taken his game to another level. Edwards is a crafty finisher in the lane with a quick first step to blow past defenders. The 22-year-old also has the ability to knock down perimeter jump shots. Edwards puts up 30.2 points, six rebounds, and 5.8 assists per game in the 2024 NBA playoffs. He supplied 27 points, four assists, and three steals in the Game 6 win.

Center Karl-Anthony Towns is another capable weapon on the floor. Towns has a smooth jumper for a 7-foot player while being able to score in the post consistently. The 2015 first-overall pick does a sound job fighting to grab boards. He averages 18.4 points and nine rebounds per game in the postseason. In Game 5, Towns totaled 23 points, six rebounds, and made two 3-pointers. See which team to pick here.
