Why the Nuggets can cover 

The Nuggets have so many players who can step up and have a big game. Forward Michael Porter Jr. is someone who can play off-ball but has the ability to create his own shot. The Missouri product has a nice jumper and length to shoot right over defenders with ease. In nine games this postseason, Porter Jr. is averaging 18.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, and shooting 46% from beyond the arc. On May 10, he finished with 21 points, four rebounds, and made four 3-pointers.

Forward Aaron Gordon is an athletic, two-way force. Gordon is constantly hovering around the rim with the power and bounce to absorb contact in the lane. He's also a high-effort defender that can guard any defender in the frontcourt. The Arizona product is logging 15.3 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 4.7 assists in the playoffs.
