Nuggets vs Clippers Game 7 – Semi-Finals

Nuggets V Clippers

Well, what can we say about this one, The Los Angeles Clippers curse is real! From 3-1 up to 4-3 down. Clippers fans must be sorely disappointed with the Clippers efforts.

First half was pretty tight with just 2 points separating the teams as half time was called. Both teams looking pretty efficient and passing the ball well.

In the third, the Nuggets switched on their 3pt shooters and well they delivered and with style. Jamal MurrayMonte Morris and Paul Millsap making some nice threes. soon enough Nuggets had the lead.

Much more of this in the 4th and soon enough Nuggets were 20 points clear.

The very poor performance of the offensive end from Kawhi Leonard with just over 27% of his shots dropping yet taking 22 total shots and not drawing a single foul which gave Denver Nuggets at least 10 extra chances on possession. The Clippers were quite simply outplayed and couldn’t keep up with the efficiency of the nuggets in the 2nd half. A superb performance from Nikola Jokic all round and completing the Triple-double.
