DENVER- The Denver Nuggets officially punch their ticket to the Western Conference Finals with their 104-89 victory in Game 7 last night against title favorite, the Los Angeles Clippers.
Led by Jamal Murray (40 points) and Nikola Jokic (16 points), the Nuggets reach the Western Conference Finals for the first time since 2009. The Nuggets will battle against the Los Angeles Lakers and their superstar duo featuring LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
The Nuggets have had their backs against the wall the entire postseason. They have been down 3-1 in back-to-back series, and they are the only team in NBA history to win consecutive series when being down 3-1 in one postseason.
The Western Conference Finals kick off this Friday at 9PM EST on TNT as the Nuggets and Lakers will fight for a spot in the NBA Finals.
