Phoenix Suns vs Denver Nuggets. The NBA pick for this game is the Denver Nuggets. Phoenix defeated Denver twice since the Suns acquired Kevin Durant but Denver did not play any of its key players in either of the two games. Denver’s Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr played very well in the quarterfinals, taking pressure off the shoulders of Nikola Jokic, and will be a force against the Suns’ defense. Denver, who has a much deeper bench than Phoenix, will be able to rotate in fresh players during the entire game. Denver has covered the number in four of its last five and will do so on Saturday in Game 1. Final Score Prediction, Denver Nuggets win and cover ATS 116-112.
