After dismantling LeBron James and the defending champions in six games, the Suns now have a 3-0 stranglehold on reigning MVP Nikola Jokic and Denver Nuggets, after another comfortable 116-102 win in Game 3 of their 2nd round … This Nuggets team certainly doesn’t look like it could make history, which means Phoenix is ​​likely to do that Western Conference Finals are bound to be where they “We are one step closer to winning the first title in the franchise.

Why are Suns’ odds so much higher than Jazz’s?

As Amberley wrote above, the Suns’ chances are still much higher than the Jazz’s for the 2021 NBA title.

Should they be?

Phoenix lost just one game less than Utah in the regular season and won all three regular season matchups against the Jazz.

If they met in the Western Conference finals, the Jazz would have number 1 seeded home advantages, so the odds makers might really take that into account.

Of course, the Suns have to deal with the Nuggets first in their first round streak, and the Jazz, who beat the Clippers 2-0 on Saturday in Game 3 of their series, have to get past Los Angeles.

Then the question of whether the Jazz or the second-placed Suns are the better team may be at stake on the pitch with a berth in the 2021 NBA final.
