UTA Vs DEN Dream 11 Prediction: Denver Nuggets comes roaring back into the series to take it all the way to the decider.
Looking to be out of the playoffs after slipping to a 3-1 deficit in the series, Denver Nuggets finally decided to pull their socks up. With another defeat seeing them being shunted out of NBA 2019-20, the side got its house in order to make amends for their horrid performances against Utah Jazz.
Registering wins in their last couple of scrimmages in the series, Denver Nuggets find themselves level in the playoffs as things stand. The 119-107 in game 6 saw them draw parity at 3-3 and take the series into the deciding game 7 come today.
With their entire seasons boiling down to today’s upcoming scrimmage, this fixture promises to be an edge of a seat thriller. The finest of margins will determine the winner from the affair with this set to be poised tantalisingly across the four quarters, a tipsy turvy affair which persistently switches hands before nestling in one side’s way.
Given the low scoring affairs, this series have been riddled with, the more efficient and clutch attack is going to walk away with the series today. With Denver massively relying on Jamal to take them past rough waters and come up with game-winning displays, it’s only a matter of time before their over-dependence on a player lead to their demise.
And we envisage them being downed today. Utah’s attack is clearly the more well rounded and efficient one, a unit which should function as a complete unit to win this game.

Dream 11 Picks
There’s just no stopping Jamal Murray at the moment. He came up with a gargantuan game-winning 50 points showing in game 6 with his spin and slams and windmills leaving Utah Jazz in a quandary to see him blow their defence apart.
Where Denver have Jamal, Utah Jazz have Donovan Mitchell as a reply to him, The shooting guard waged a lone battle the last time around for the side with his behemoth 42 points performance clobbering Denver and taking his side to within 8 points of a win.
Denver Nuggets elsewhere see a duo line up from the side for this one. We begin with Gary Harris whose lengthy absence owing to injury finally came to an end as he returned for game 6 with a healthy 20 minutes in his kitty.
Partnering up with him is Torrey Craig. At just 6 credits, he might just offer the most pristine value to our Dream 11 setup with him delivering 8 points and 6 rebounds in game 6 for his side.
Joe Ingles was off the boil the last time around but the Utah Jazz’s small forward will still be inducted into our setup. While inconstantly has stricken him in the playoffs, his explosive nature inside the paint makes him a must-have pick with the player always capable of going on a rampage.
Giving him company for this one will be Georges Niang. His jump shots saw him pile on 10 points in the same game and given the fine margins which will determine the impending scrimmage, these numbers could make all the difference at the end of the day.
Denver’s return in the competition has been largely due to Nikola Jovic. The centre has waged a lone battle for the club all across the series and his side has finally started rewarding him for those displays but giving him adequate company.
He came up with 21 points and 9 rebounds in the bygone affair to see him be indicted in our setup. We have the tenacious Mason Plumlee make an advent into our side as well, someone who can pile on a bevvy of boards for the side.
His scrumptious 50 point showing in game 6 sees Murray be our star player while Donovan is the pro player.
