NBA playoffs: 3 storylines and a prediction for Utah Jazz vs. Denver Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz stole headlines inside the NBA’s restart for two very different reasons. The Nuggets were the talk of the restart bubble because of the emergence of Bol Bol and Michael Porter Jr., who looked impressive during different spurts.

It remains to be seen how each of those players could impact the series, but it’s never terrible to have two talented options on hand. At the very least, it appears that Porter will play at least some type of role for the Nuggets (more on that later). Bol could find his way to a role, depending on how matchups begin to unfold.

The Jazz made waves during the restart for being one of the worst offenses in the restart. In the restart games, the Jazz had the 15th ranked offense and defense. They finished their eight seeding games with net rating minus-3.7. Will they be able to flip that narrative when the playoffs restart?

There is plenty at stake between these two teams; we explore three storylines and a prediction for the Utah Jazz vs. Denver Nuggets.
