(NBA) Denver vs. Phoenix, 06/09/2021 9:30 PM, Score: 98 - 123
Total: 222.50 | -105.00 Under
Result: Win
T.M. Selection: Suns/Nuggets UNDER (10* TOTAL TRADE-MARK).

Denver looked really good over the first two quarters of Game 1, but then the Suns dialled up the pressure in the second half, and the Nuggets lost their focus an intensity. I expect Game 2 to be a much more competitive affair. Denver will be leaning heavily on league MVP Nikola Jokic here, so expect a lot of "half court sets" while Denver is on offense. The Nuggets are a good perimeter defending team and I think they'll make the necessary adjustments to combat Devin Booker and Chris Paul. Denver has also seen the total go under in ten of its last 14 in trying to revenge a road loss of 15 or more points to an opponent; this number is definitely high, the play is the under!

T.M. Prediction: COMING SHORTLY.
