The Nuggets looked sluggish in Game 2 and they need a spark in order to win Game 3. That spark could come as J.R. Smith. Smith hasn't had a great series so far but he can turn it on at any time.
The Nuggets really need to focus on the defensive end of the game, they have been giving up 106.5 points per game. There is not way the Nuggets can beat the Thunder if they are giving up that many points per game. Durant and Westbrook alone have combined to average 58 points per game.
Also, the Nuggets need more production from Wilson Chandler. So far, Chandler has scored a total of 13 points in the series. Chandler averaged 15.3 points in the regular season and hasn't even scored 15 total points in the series.
