Last 10 match record, injured players
When shooting 50.1 percent from the field, the Nuggets are leading 4-6, averaging 118.3 points, 44.1 rebounds, 28.4 assists, 7.2 steals, and 3.5 blocks a game. Their opponents score 121.9 points per game on average. The Warriors are 8-2 and shoot 49.9 percent from the field, averaging 114.1 points, 41.9 rebounds, 28.7 assists, 7.1 steals, and 5.5 blocks per game. Their opponent has a 106.6 points average.
Michael Porter Jr. was out with a back injury, and Jamal Murray had to deal with a knee injury. Meanwhile, James Wiseman was forced to miss the rest of the Warriors’ season due to a knee injury.
The Nuggets were eliminated in the first two games and then lost in the third. In the second half of a game against the Utah Jazz in 1994, the Nuggets were defeated 3-0. Despite this, the Nuggets came back to play in Game 7 and lost 91-81.
They made history two years ago when they became the first NBA franchise to come back from a 3-1 deficit in consecutive postseason series. Murray and Porter were on the Nuggets’ roster at the time, and they were assisting Jokic with his comeback.
Nuggets head into Game 4 against Warriors
Jokic, the game’s MVP and a finalist for the season’s second prize has done everything he can to help the Nuggets win the game. He recorded 27.1 points, 13.8 rebounds, and 7.9 assists in second place. However, his efforts and accomplishments were insufficient to put the Nuggets ahead of their opponents. With the Nuggets’ current record, the team still needs to win four games in a row to make up the points deficit.
The Nuggets were without Murray and Porter against the Warriors this time. Additionally, their presence is frequently questioned prior to the match.
On the other hand, Stephen Curry returned to the court after missing the last month of the regular season due to a left foot ailment and rapidly regained his rhythm. Curry averaged 25.5 points and 6.3 assists in three victories, with some help from teammates.
Poole and Klay Thompson have 28.7 and 22.0 point averages, respectively, while Draymond Green aided Jokic for the majority of the series. Thompson has put on a remarkable performance after missing more than two years due to torn ACL and Achilles ailments.
