A new appointment with the NBA brings us the game that the Denver Nuggets and Toronto Raptors are playing today to close this unusual regular season. The Raptors enter the game having secured second place in the Eastern Conference, while the Nuggets enter the game in third place in the West.
Denver Nuggets raises this meeting with the sole intention that none of its key players end up injured after having achieved third place in the Western Conference. The Nuggets have two consecutive losses and have lost three of the last four games they have played, the last of them against the LA Clippers last Wednesday, a game in which Paul George scored a total of 27 points and Kawhi Leonard added 26 points for the Clippers to clinch second place in the West with a score of 124-111. The truth is that the rest given to many of the players by coach Mike Malone was noticed.
Nikola Jokic, the best player on the entire Denver squad, scored 17 points and gave 13 assists against the Clippers, while Jerami Gran was the leading scorer with 25 points and six rebounds in 28 minutes coming off the bench. The Nuggets are almost certainly going to reserve their key players for today’s game, since the game is of little consequence and the group is already more focused on the first round of the Playoffs that will take them to Utah. .
Toronto Raptors enters the final game of this regular season having added six wins from seven meetings in Orlando. The truth is that the Raptors are in the same situation as Denver, with the second place in the East assured, so this meeting is a formality. The team, being second classified, will face the Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the next Playoffs. Toronto appears for the appointment after beating Philadelphia last Wednesday.
In this meeting Kyle Lowry and Chris Boucher scored 19 points each to add a final result of 125-121. For his part, Norman Powell added 17 points and Pascal Siakam added 15. As the game progressed, the Raptors reserved their important players, but they still had their role until well into the game.
Today two teams are measured in theory relaxed for the classification and it is difficult to foresee what will happen, so motivation will be a great factor when contesting the appointment. The coaches want to avoid unnecessary injuries to face the Playoffs with guarantees. Despite this, we see the Toronto Raptors closer to victory because of the attitude of the entire team against the 76ers, both the starters and the reserves when it comes to winning.
