Summary:

This series largely has become the Donovan Mitchell vs. Jamal Murray show. Mitchell had had two 50-point games and is averaging 39.5 points to propel Utah to a 3-1 lead, while Murray had a 50-point game himself in Sunday's 129-127 loss. The winning team has scored at least 124 points in each game.

Details:

Can you smell it? There is blood in the water as Utah is swarming looking to advance to the conference semifinals. But not so fast.

It is do or die time for the Denver Nuggets, as they are on the brink of elimination. Game 5 could be their last of the 2019-20 season if they are not able to defeat the Utah Jazz. After dropping the first contest of this series, the Jazz have taken command. They won a hard-fought battle in Game 4, 129-127, despite 50 points from Nuggets guard Jamal Murray, who connected on 18 of 31 shots.Instead, it would Donovan Mitchell who would win the battle of 50-point scorers, as the Utah guard scored 51 hitting on 15 of 27 shots, including 17 of 18 from the free-throw line.

The total is set at 220.5. The teams have gone over that mark in all but one of the contests in the series and have gone over that number in five of the last six games between them. Utah has gone over in eight of their last 10 games while Denver has gone over in 21 of their last 29.
In most playoff series, defense is what helps a team advance. However, that is not the foundation of how these teams play. They score and they use their superior offensive schemes to beat down their opponents. I do not expect this to be a high-scoring game. I expected to be an extraordinarily high-scoring game.134-126?

Prediction: Over 218.5
