The conference quarter finals of the 2022 NBA Playoffs are now in full swing. Several teams have stepped to the plate in their respective opening series. Perhaps , none more so than the Golden State Warriors (2-0), who’ve taken 2-0 lead over the higher seeded Denver Nuggets(0-2) . Denver has the reigning NBA League MVP on their roster , Nicola Jokic.
Jokic’s play during the regular seaon has been nothing short of spectacular. There’s also a very good chance that he’ll repeat as League MVP , joining a select group of players to have won the award in back to back seasons .
Denver’s play in this series against Golden State has been disappointing and with a pivotal game three on the horizon , this is a must-win contest for the Nuggets. A third consecutive game loss and the series could come to an abrupt with the Denver Nuggets being swept in four games (0-4). It remains to be seen if the Nuggets can right the ship and win game three.
