PLAYOFF-2020 (Game#6, R2): [3]Denver Nuggets vs [2]LA Clippers (2-3), SUN 13:00ET

Denver is 4-0 so far in DO OR DIE games this playoff, while no other of 15 teams in the 2020 playoff won more than 1 such game!

Denver won game#2 by a fantastic start (44-25 in 1st quarter) and won game#5 by fantastic finish (43-25 in the last 13 minutes), and in overtime loss vs Dallas Clippers lost 3rd quarter 35-19, so seems that the Clippers game tends to temporary collapse when opponents offense is out of blue.

I'm still with my formula based on playing time 40+ Jokic/Murray, 35+ Grant/Harris/Porter, but in the last game, Millsap and Morris used theirs playing time in a very proper way.

No team in NBA history won the series twice in the same playoff after 1-3, but if the Nuggets win tomorrow, chances for that historic achievement will rose to 50%!

If you thought the Nuggets had trouble winning game 5; game 6 is going to be tougher. Think about our scoring and our defense both.

It'll take at least 100 pts to win and that only works if we hold the Clippers below 100.

    Clippers playoff averages:
    50 - Leonard, George
    46 - Williams, Morris, Harrell, Zubac
    That's 96 from their top-6.

    Nuggets playoff averages:
    51.9 - Murray, Jokic
    39.5 - Porter, Grant, Millsap, Morris
    That's 91.4 from our top-6.

Jokic has done his job and Murray needs to help a little more. But our bench needs to score at least 40 points.

BRILLIANT !!

Looks like we're keeping this in striking distance but I'm sure the Clips will be ready to make adjustments in this game.

I guess it is over now, it is hard to believe that team like the Clippers will lose twice in the row double-digit lead in a playoff game.

The biggest two mistakes this season is the loss of Beasley and the wasted opportunity to establish Porter already as the team's #3 player and option.

So we have 3 starters (Millsap, Harris, Grant) scored just 6 points together in 1st half and two scoreless bench players, so the opponent has a big lead despite Jokic and Murray have good numbers. With Beasley in, and with Porter playing starter minutes we would really challenge even NBA TOP2 Team Clippers.

OK, we won game#2 thanks to the fantastic 1st quarter, we won game#5 by fantastic 4th quarter, and today we have a fantastic 30-16 3rd quarter (including a 17-0 run!), the quarter which we playing worst in this playoff.

Is it time for another spectacular win?

In game#5 we won 2nd half 67-49 in a spectacular way, but what to say about today's 64-35 2nd half?

NO WORDS!

It looked like the Clippers were stunned by mid 4th quarter.

It was comical the way the announcers basically gave up on the Nuggets half way through the 2nd quarter and were stunned when we were suddenly down by 5, it is like they have not watched the Nuggets the entire playoffs this year.

What a game. What else can you say?

While most Faker fans are still in denial, some other posters are starting to give us a few props. One more win will have us a few more band-waggoners but it's those Faker fans I want to take it to the most. I would LOVE to put another candle on LBJ's B-Day cake to have him wishing for a return to the Finals again !

While we still have to get past the Clippers, I am laughing at how everybody is acting like the Nuggets have no shot against the Lakers. Maybe it will occur to them that the same was said about the Clippers and Jazz series soon, but until then I am going to enjoy all the stupidity. We could win a title this year and everybody will talk about how they are not as good as the Rockets, Lakers, Clippers, or whatever other team they pull out their ass. Fact is the Clippers have had their asses handed ot them this series, we threw a **** game and even still the Clippers are only plus 9 in total points for the series. If we would have had more than MIPJ actually shoot worth a crap in game 4 this series would have already been over.
