The Golden State Warriors have a 2-0 lead in their first-round series against the Denver Nuggets. Golden State won the games by an average of 18 points.

The Warriors and Suns are both 7/2 to win the title at the Las Vegas SuperBook. The Bucks are 4/1.

Booker, 25, averaged 26.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.8 assists in the regular season. The Suns were 8-6 without him in the lineup.

The Miami Heat are +650 and the Boston Celtics +800 at FanDuel.
