PLAYOFF-2020 (Game#7, R2): [3]Denver Nuggets vs [2]LA Clippers (3-3), TUE 22:00ET

In the series against Utah, this Denver team becomes the first-ever in franchise history to survive after 1-3, but if the Nuggets beat the Clippers in game#7, they will become the first-ever NBA team to win two series in the same playoff where the opponent lead 1-3!

So Nuggets not only playing for franchise history books and third WCF appearance but for NBA history too!

For me, the Clippers are not at all favorites in this game, because Jokic, Murray, and Kawhi proved themself constantly in the elimination games, but the Paul George (which playing this series like true TOP15 player) case was much different. And after all, Clippers famous NBA best-ever bench duo Lou-Harrell simply doesn't work against the Nuggets.

I just checked betting odds of worlds biggest bookmakers and realizes that world still not take this Nuggets team seriously! Odds to win this game are close to 4:1, Clippers are bold favorites, and the odds of Denver winning ring is over 15, similar to before playoff started, despite only five teams left (for example odds on Miami and Boston are around 5:1). This eventual win will finally force everyone to take look seriously on this Nuggets generation.

Let's go Nuggets!

We are arguably a better team now than in 2019 for playoff purposes, with Murray breakthrough this summer and the addition of Porter and Grant. But problem is that the Clippers-2020 are also a much better team than Portland-2019.

Really feels like we are gonna have to go after the Clippers this game, new strategy might really throw them off their game. Doc is out policing the refs, putting them on notice after a 16 foul 4th qtr, afraid of getting outcoached again on Nat'l TV

Hey guys, Raptors fan here.

Just wanna say good luck! I'll be cheering for the Nuggets tonight for a variety of reasons, but mostly I just really like your team. It's really entertaining basketball to watch. I thought you guys were down and it against the Jazz. What a series! I haven't heard much talk on TV about Barton and how much you guys had to deal with missing a player of his importance. Getting Harris back has been large for you guys! Hopefully it's not an L.A. battle in the WCF.

Cheers

Can't say this is original, but it is noteworthy....Has anyone else noticed the building chemistry between Jokic and MPJ ? Saw it in the early days of the bubble but it has been clearly increasing, similar to Jokic/Murray last year.

I don't like to see when Jokic and Murray clearly outplaying opponents stars duo but Denver not leading. But -2 on halftime is acceptable after -12 just a few minutes before.

Harrell finally played like a league-best bench player, Nuggets have 4 TO more than LAC, and despite the Clippers are 6-18 bad in 3pts Nuggets are 5-20 worse.

Nuggets played awesome 2nd halves in the past two games, but also played very bad 2nd halves in the last two game-7 (vs Utah and Portland), so everything is possible in 2nd half.

Murray was 11-17 great in 1st half, but Jokic attempted only 4 shots and Porter only ones.

Glad to see Grant and GHarris getting double-figures so far, no MPJ yet. In fashion, come from behind in the 3rd yet again. Murray going off !

Jokic+Murray 56-26-18 (20/39fg), Kawhi+George 24-10-8 (10/38fg)! But Harris and Grant should be mention too, they are DPOY in defense but also have two-way performance.

Historic, epic victory.

we owe them for 85 as well, we blew them out in game 2 and were way up in game 3 despite English having a broken finger, and Fat got hurt. It is hard to be too mad about 2009 because Carter and those crappy inbounds passes were our own fault. Injuries cost that team from being remembered, and that team deserved to be remembered.

I remember having a discussion on this board when the Clippers got George and Kawhi, and I said that I was not scared of them. Despite the hype I knew we would win a series against them, and oddly we still have not played a complete game against them. Now the question becomes if we are as good as those last 4 games indicated or were the Clippers worse than anticipated?
