3-2 for Denver and New York

Reigning champion, Denver picked up a third success in a row against Minnesota in the Western Conference semi-finals. The Nuggets won at home 112-97 to lead 3-2 in the series.

With his 40 points and 13 assists, triple MVP Nikola Jokic lived up to his rank to lead the Nuggets to an almost uneventful victory. Denver led 50-44 at the break before widening a gap of 14 points (88-74) at the call of the last quarter. For the Timberwolves, the memory of the two successes picked up in Denver during the first two matches of this semi-final seemed very distant.

Carried by the verve of Jalen Brunson, author of 44 points, the Knicks, for their part, found their way to victory in their Eastern Conference semi-final against Indiana. After two away defeats, New York won 121-91 in its Madison Square Garden lair to also lead 3-2 in the series.

Jalen Bruson has passed the 40-point threshold for the fifth time already in these play-offs. He asserts himself as the key asset of a team galvanized like never before by the extraordinary support of his public.
