Charles Barkley had a direct message for the Nuggets after the ugly Game 2 loss to the T-Wolves

The Timberwolves beat the Nuggets, 106-80, in Game 2 Monday night to take a 2-0 lead in the West semifinals as the series moves to Minnesota for Game 3 Friday night.

The defending champion Nuggets were dominated from the opening whistle and are now on the ropes after losing the first two games at home. After the loss, head coach Michael Malone lambasted his team for an embarrassing effort. He’ll need Nikola Jokic and Co. to step up quickly or their season could come to an abrupt end against Anthony Edwards and the red-hot Timberwolves.

Charles Barkley thinks this series is already over, as he said on the TNT post-game show:

Barkley’s predictions rarely go his way, so Nuggets fans can have some hope after Game 2, but it certainly doesn’t look good for Denver right now.
