It stinks that Murray was hurt. You hate to see anyone injured.

If he busted his ACL, Denver is not as good, of course.

If we play them in the Playoffs, who will win?

I hope the injury is not as bad as it looks. Denver loses in the first round without him imo, assuming the opponent's stars are healthy.

If Washington can beat us, Denver without Murray can beat us as well......

Feel terrible for Murray, he had really turned the corner this season after the all-star break and was looking like he would break out. I think this pretty much sinks Denver's chances of advancing past the second round (I can still see them advancing past the 1st round if they have a high seed).

Denver is done as far as contending goes, I don’t think they can pick anyone up either, Austin Rivers would be a good pick up.

We lost to Washington before, and Clarkson played in that one...... And Denver, even without Murray is much better than Wizards at full strength.......

No, Denver can't beat the Jazz in a series without Murray playing at an All Star level, let alone not playing at all. Jokic and MPJ are great, but they're not enough to win a series by themselves.

Denver would more likely be a 2nd-rd matchup, and now I'm not sure they get there.
