Wolves vs. Nuggets is set. Here's what we know about Round 2.

The Timberwolves made quick work of the Phoenix Suns in their NBA Western Conference quarterfinal series, giving them a week or so off before starting Round 2.

Late Monday night, the Wolves found out who their next opponent will be. The Denver Nuggets, defending NBA champions and No. 2 seed in the West, defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 108-106 on Jamal Murray's 14-foot jumper with four seconds remaining. That victory gave the Nuggets a 4-1 series win, so the Wolves will travel to Denver for Game 1 Saturday and Game 2 Monday.

Game 1: Saturday, May 4 at Denver

Game 2: Monday, May 6 at Denver
