The Phoenix Suns won the second game of their NBA Western Conference semi-final against Denver on Wednesday (123-98) and now lead the series 2 wins to 0.
Barely designated MVP (best player), the pivot of the Nuggets Nikola Jokic delivered a good performance (24 points, 13 rebounds and 6 assists). But that wasn’t enough in the face of the collective might of the Arizona franchise, six of whose players have scored ten or more points.
Game 3 of the series is scheduled for Friday in Colorado. The first team to clinch four wins will advance to the Western Conference Finals, against the Los Angeles Clippers or the Utah Jazz.
