    Incredible pass by Jokic and it probably should have been a flagrant foul on Beverley.

    I love this Denver team.

    how do you not root for Jokic and Murray.

    epic collapse by the Clippers. Bad performance by Kawhi but no one was there to pick up the slack Playoff P was a joke.

    If someone said Murray and Jokic were 2 of the 10 best players in the NBA would they be wrong?

    I wouldn’t argue.

    Yeah. I think if the game wasn't over the refs would have gone to video and called that a flagrant. No effort to go for the ball, fouled him around the head and also came down on the back of Murray's legs... while Beverly also tried to flop at the same time.

    I certainly wouldn't argue the point. Nuggets need to figure out a way to slow down Lebron.

    Hope this board is pulling for the Nuggets like me. Rondo vs Murray?

    Oh, I will cheer for the Nuggets against the Lakers but with the realization that Denver is a rising power. It's a team the Suns may have to beat someday if they ever hope to win the Western Conference Finals.

    I was just about to explain to my wife what Beverly might do here, just then that foul happened. He even tried to grab him after the foul but thankfully Murray popped him back.

    Rivers might be the biggest choke job of them all. =Denver ran the same play over and over, pNr, Jokic to the free throw line, colapse on jokic, pass out, boom.

    Adebayo went Amare last night. I'm rooting for the Heat. I love a player like Butler, i'm glad he's advancing his team in the east. When he left from the Bulls i wanted him to become a sun.

    Jokic' passing (13 assists) was one of the keys in allowing Denver to get great shots.

    That block by Adebayo on Tatum was incredible last night.

    Maybe the Clippers are hearing footsteps as well as the Bucks.

    Wes Unseld may get a boost for Bulls job with the design of Denver defense.
