The NBA Western Conference semifinals have commenced, and the Denver Nuggets have taken a lead in the series by winning Game 1 against the Phoenix Suns.

Nuggets guard Jamal Murray delivered a noteworthy performance in the first game and Nikola Jokic dominated with a double-double, helping Denver to establish an early lead.

The two teams split the series during the regular season, and now they battle it out for a spot in the Western Conference Finals. As Denver aims to take a 2-0 lead, let's create an NBA same game parlay for the upcoming game.

Suns vs Nuggets Injury Report

Currently, the injury report only includes one name for both franchises, which is Denver rookie Collin Gillespie. He has been sidelined since early April due to a lower body injury and has yet to feature for the Nuggets. Therefore, both teams will be at full strength for tonight's match.

Suns vs Nuggets Prediction

The Denver Nuggets were in control for the majority of Game 1 with a double-digit lead heading into halftime. They never relinquished their advantage throughout the second half.

Denver's transition offense found Nikola Jokic early, and the Suns struggled to contain him as he drove to the basket. The Nuggets' dominance continued from beyond the arc as they hit an array of threes, with Jamal Murray's six threes on the night and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hitting back-to-back clutch shots in the second quarter.

Despite their best efforts, Phoenix was unable to keep up with Denver's high-octane shooting performance. If the Nuggets can maintain this level of play throughout the series, they will be a tough team to beat. This was evident after watching the Suns struggle in their previous series.

Denver recognized Phoenix's defensive rotation weaknesses, which leaves shooters open at the perimeter. This was evident in the Suns' previous series against the Clippers, where players like Russell Westbrook and Eric Gordon were able to take advantage and hit threes.

Moreover, Denver's defense is superior to the Clippers. And the team is at full strength unlike the injury-riddled Clippers. Therefore, I anticipate the Nuggets will continue their dominance and claim Game 2 before heading to Phoenix for the next game.

Best NBA Same Game Parlay Picks Today for Suns vs Nuggets - NBA Playoffs Game 2: 4-Leg Parlay Picks (+750)

Jamal Murray Total Points

In the opening game of the series, Jamal Murray's performance was nothing short of electric. After suffering an ACL tear that caused him to miss the previous series against the Suns in 2020-21, he's playing with a point to prove.

In that series, the Suns swept the Nuggets. But Murray is determined to prevent the same outcome this time around. He was unstoppable on the court, shooting 13-24 with 6-10 from beyond the arc, leaving the Suns with no answer to his impressive play. His 34 points in the opener were well-deserved, and he'll aim to maintain that level of performance in tonight's game, giving Denver a significant advantage before heading on the road.

At -110, the 25+ points line is a no-brainer for tonight's NBA same game parlay predictions. If you’re looking to boost the odds for your SGP, changing the line to 30+ points at +250 offers great value.

Leg-1 SGP Pick: Jamal Murray 25+ Points (-125)

Kevin Durant Total Points In the playoffs so far, Kevin Durant has been an efficient player for the Suns, but he’s not going to be able to reach 40+ points. Devin Booker is their volume shooter while Durant has a different role to play.

Durant's highest score in the playoffs thus far is 31, which he achieved twice in Games 4 and 5 against a Clippers team that was suffering from numerous injuries. In those games, he made a total of seven threes. But it's improbable that he'll be able to replicate that against a Nuggets team that is better at defending the perimeter than the Clippers.

In Game 1, the Suns as a whole were only able to make seven three-pointers throughout the game. Although Durant is typically a high-scoring player, I'm feeling unexpectedly confident in selecting the under 30.5 for tonight's NBA picks and parlays.

Leg-2 SGP Pick: Kevin Durant Under 30.5 Points (-150)

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Three PointersThroughout the playoffs, it's become clear that the Suns tend to leave shooters open from the three-point line. Several players on the Clippers roster were able to take advantage of this, and KCP seems like he could be the beneficiary early in the second round series.

In Game 1, Caldwell-Pope played for 28 minutes and made three three-pointers. This brought his his total to three games with three three-pointers in this year's playoffs. He attempted eight three-pointers in the game.

In the opening round, he didn't attempt more than six three-pointers in any game. With his success against the Suns, I'm comfortable predicting that Caldwell-Pope will make at least two three-pointers.

Leg-3 SGP Pick: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope 2+ Three Pointers (-115)

Point Spread

In light of what I saw in Game 1, I’m leaning heavily towards the Nuggets winning this series in five games. Despite Nikola Jokic having an off-night shooting-wise, Denver still managed to dominate the Suns with a variety of offensive strategies that picked apart their defense.

With an arsenal of great perimeter shooters, adept ball handlers, and clever passers who can create open shots, the Nuggets have the potential to exhaust the Suns' defensive rotation and capitalize on any weaknesses. While Phoenix struggled with this to an extent against the Clippers, the Nuggets possess the firepower to take full advantage, especially considering that Deandre Ayton is currently unable to contain Jokic.

To wrap up my NBA same game parlay picks for today, I am betting on the Nuggets to secure a decisive victory in Game 2 before they travel to Phoenix.

Leg-4 SGP Pick: Denver Nuggets -4.5 (+100)
