Re: May 3: Mavericks at Nuggets, Game 1
This is a series with some interesting matchups.
I think the key for Denver is as said earlier transition D, and taking good shots as well as rebounding well. Also they need to make their open shots, because if Dallas doubles Melo...hitting open shots like they did in 4 of the 5 games vs NO will make things very easy. I don't believe that Dallas will light Denver up in the halfcourt as they rely a lot on jumpshootin and I think that's easy to defend, even though there can be games where jumpshooting teams just catch fire.
I could actually see Dallas stealing game 1 for some reason (hate that early start), but I still see Denver in 5-6.
