IF we can push this to a Game 7, really feels we'll be pushing this team to Super-Team status especially with the youth of our Big 3 (Jokic, Murray & MPJ)

Scary isn't it? Another year of development for those 3, Harris being healthy, and a good PF, with a solid-good bench and this team should easily be a contender.

Super-Team status? :lol: Now you are scaring me - and I wish I didn't agree with you. How about we change your "pushing this team to Super-Team status" to "pushing this team closer to Super-Team status"? :nod:

But then again, haven't most of us been saying that potential was there for a couple of years now?

If it wasnt for Malone being so full of himself, we would be 3 2 right now with win in game 3..

What do we think of the jokic plumlee lineup ? I was listening on the radio at the time but it sounded like it was causing the clips some problems.

I don't think it works very well, if used very long, but for a short stretch ... it can work (my opinion).

IT threw off the Clippers defense for a short time, and kind of threw off their offense for a couple of possessions but the Clippers adjusted pretty quickly.

It certainly makes some sense: you’re playing a team with one legit big. Put Jokic, Plumlee, and MPJ in and it should cause some problems.

On offense that worked, the issue was on defense. It left MPJ or Plumlee on Kawhi, which while they all hustled and made some defensive plays, we were losing traction in a hurry.

It was the Nuggets defense that made them choke, they could not do a damn thing without being swarmed in that 3rd quarter.

Can someone tell the team that the series do not have to go to 7 games, if they win it in 4 they can get some time off.

Jokic is playing the best I have ever seen him play.
Canned in Denver.

Interesting has anyone else noticed that BOTH Murray and Jokic excel in the playoffs ? Seems both elevate their games to new levels, hoping MPJ and Bol learn that skill too !!

I always figured Murray would be better in the playoffs, when you would watch him get emotional and take over games even as a rookie than you knew that he would do better in the playoffs. The one that surprised me has been Jokic, especially last year. He always looks so tired by the end of games that you just thought he was leaving everything out there already, than last year's playoffs happened.


MPJ took over game 5 at the end, even though he made a couple of rookie errors he cemented that game for us, so I would say he has it in him.

I think Michael Porter Jr. is right on track..He definitely doesn’t shrink up in the biggest moments

Great respect for Jokic. I haven't really watched much Nuggets this year so I didn't know what to expect when finally checking out the game yesterday. You guys were down and it seemed hopeless. Then Jokic just decided that he was going to keep taking it to the basket. He got fouled and got shots. Kept coming back and then the rest of the team started really locking everything down on D. Great Game! Great player. He decided that he wasn't going to lose. Simple as that.

Return to Denver Nuggets
