Too late for that. I'd *hate* to give the Celtics that satisfaction of coming back from a 3-1 deficit. If we have to go out, let us go out swinging against an All-Time Great. Don't let Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown be the reasons why we leave The Bubble.

I hope the Nugs do the rest of us, Boston or Miami whichever of us makes it through, a favor and blasts the officiating on their way out. Can't keep letting the Lakers be so overaggressive on defense, but calling touch fouls on their opponents and keeping teams demoralized and their stars in foul trouble.

Honestly noting but respect for how to close out an elimination game. 38/10/15 in a close out game.

What’s the off season plan for the nuggets ?

They gotta get a little more fire power

I have nothing but respect for the Nuggets. They came into The Bubble and did their thing. They were one Plumlee mistake from this being a 6-game series.

They missed Will Burton badly (15pts/5/4 all round player off bench). They could use upgrade over Plumlee and Milsap maybe.

Milsap is UFA. He might be brought back for cheap, but he can't be a starting PF for a contender anymore imo

Freaking Rob Pelinka got a nice haircut in the bubble. Why can't Iggy get one? SMDH

Thats true. But while I do hate Marcus Smart, I actually like Jaylen Brown and in general don't mind this current batch of Celtics players. They are a well rounded team like the Heat. Wouldn't find it hard to root for them against the Lakers if they came back.

But I don't think we'll choke anyway. I expect us to close it out tomorrow. But even if we were somehow to do that, it would probably have a lot to do with Bam being hobbled. He was clearly not himself yesterday.

Financially, I'm pretty sure they're screwed; I'd trade Jokic if a top-15 wing came into the fold, but otherwise pray for serendipity(option bol bol)

Want to see Spo go small and bet on our shooters if we get there; we start a 6'9 center, we'd never match their size(and who'd do that? Meyers leonard lol)

Have Herro sub for Bam and move Crowder down to the 5. And save Olynyk for non-AD mins

yeah we have no choice but to make them match us.

When they go small, they have to use some iffy players like Kuz, Craso, and Morris. Rox couldn't exploit it due to Russ malfunction and House shenanigans but we're deeper and more versatile though not as powerful as Rox could be offensively.

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 :clap:
Championship teams experience adversities. We in that process. Started gm1. Remember this time. Remember this pain. Our time is coming...

Built the right way. Play the right way. Win the right way. Virtue, Ethics & Honor.
