Pick 5: Denver Nuggets Moneyline (-175 DraftKings)

The series is tied 2-2, and the Denver Nuggets head back home to Ball Arena for a pivotal Game 5 against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Here's why the momentum might be shifting in favor of the Nuggets:

Home Court Advantage: Denver has been dominant at home this season, boasting a 33-12 record. The altitude and passionate crowd can be a significant advantage, especially in a close playoff battle.

Nuggets' Supporting Cast Stepping Up: Jamal Murray and Aaron Gordon haven't reached their regular-season scoring averages yet, but their contributions were crucial in Game 4.  Their continued improvement could be a game-changer.

Defense on Edwards: The Nuggets will likely adjust their strategy to contain Anthony Edwards, who has been a scoring machine for the Timberwolves. Limiting his production will be vital for Denver's success.

The Timberwolves shouldn't be underestimated, but the Nuggets returning home with a hungry MVP and a potentially resurgent supporting cast makes them a dangerous matchup.  If they can exploit Gobert's leaks and limit Edwards' impact, the series should see it's first home win with the Nuggets taking a 3-2 lead.
