Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Denver Nuggets Prop Pick: Can Christian Braun Step Up for Nuggets in Game 7?

The Nuggets and T-Wolves will square off in Sunday night's Game 7 to see who punches their ticket to the Western Conference Finals against the Mavs. Let's focus on Christian Braun's prop line as he tries to boost the Nuggets to a home victory.

TIMBERWOLVES VS. NUGGETS GAME 7 DATE, TIME, AND WHERE TO WATCH

  • Date: May 19, 2024
  • Start Time: 8:00 p.m. ET
  • Where to Watch: TNT

MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES VS. DENVER NUGGETS Prediction

Christian Braun has been great so far in this series except for Game 6, where he shot 1-for-6 from the field and finished with just five PRs. He has seen great minutes and I think he should be good for another game with close to 20 minutes with potential for more.

Braun played just 18 minutes in the Game 6 blowout, but prior to that, he played 28 and 25 minutes and has recorded 15 and 14 points + rebounds. He has covered this line in four of five games with 18+ minutes this series, and Coach Malone really trusts him. He’s been cutting into Michael Porter Jr.’s minutes as he's closed a few games this series, likely due to his defense and rebounding, so he should get plenty of opportunity here.

He has guarded Anthony Edwards as well as anyone on the Nuggets this series, and I’d expect we see around 20-28 minutes from him in Game 7. When Braun plays 18+ minutes, he has 8+ points + rebounds in 85% of games this season.
