The Warriors took care of business in the opening game of their series with the Nuggets, and they return to the Chase Center on Monday to see if they can go to Colorado with a 2-0 series lead.
Presumptive NBA MVP Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets will have to work hard to secure a Game 2 upset, which will be a very difficult task. If they can’t pick up a win, the task of winning the series will be even harder than the individual game itself.
In the history of the NBA, only 12 teams have recovered from a 2-0 deficit in the first round of the playoffs and gone on to win the series. That’s 6% of all teams.
There are no new injuries ahead of Game 2, but the same players that missed Game 1 — James Wiseman, Michael Porter Jr. and Jamal Murray — will remain out for this game and the series.
Here’s where sharp bettors are looking for value ahead of the crucial game.
