When you look at the statics for Denver/La series prior to today, in 4 games the numbers are almost identical. In fact Denver had exact same amount of points as La. This proves, absolutely, Denver can compete against the Lakers. I think we can all agree the officiating has favored Lebron & the Lakers for the majority of the WCF. Take away Foster in gm1, where Denver were up by 2-4pts to end the 1Q & game's such as this where Nuggets were getting smothered in PF's taking key players out the game like Jokic & not only wld Nuggets had won more than 1 game but they may have even been up during the series.
Who knows what the results wld be if it were officiated differently. That's Lebron for ya though. Lakers even complained to the league, prior to gm4, he wasn't getting to the line enough. Gm4 he scored almost half his points on the line.
I give Murray, Jokic & crew major well deserved props for their fight to the WCF! Nod of respect from many i'm sure
