Date: on the 08th of May, 2019 (Wednesday)
Match start: 03:30 (GMT+1)
Tournament: NBA. Play-off. ¼ final.
In the same way that on East in one of the semifinal pairs of the play-off stages there is uncertainty after 4 matches, the same situation can be observed on West.
Denver and Portland, having exchanged single wins on home court and in away matches are returning home to Nuggets with the score 2:2.
The fothcoming 5th match will become the most important one as one of the rivals will gain crucial advantage.
Bearing in mind the fact that both teams are not able to use the factor of home court we don’t advise you to rely on hosts’ success. More than that, Portland has already proved that it is able to play not only from the rival but also from themselves.
The team has won 2nd match with the score only 97:90. We are surprised by the fact that the teams didn’t shot a hundred of points that is a real rarity in the games with the participation of Trail Blazers.
If to make now the prediction, the most probable is the replay of the scenario with low scoring game. Let us look: the first meeting (121:113 in favor of Denver) became ideal opener.
Next Nuggets were trying to be more modest in order to gain comfortable advantage before away match but they failed.
In the 4th game Blazers were playing in their favorite manner and Nuggets were taking risks and won.
The 5th game because of its importance can’t become the game during which the teams will be running without paying attention on their own rims. The total in 214 won’t be passed.
