No one gave the Denver Nuggets a chance to beat the Los Angeles Clippers going into the series, and no one gave them a shot to come back from a 3-1 series deficit, but they did both and now they’re off to the Western Conference Finals!
Thanks to Jamal Murray’s hot hand and Nikola Jokic’s all-around impressive game, the Nuggets live to see another day and will now go up against the Los Angeles Lakers for a spot in the NBA Finals.
The Clippers were a favourite to win it all the moment they landed Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, and now they find themselves going home after the second round, just like the Toronto Raptors.
The Denver Nuggets are Western Conference Finals bound!!
