A legendary performance. The series against Utah and Denver is the one that has given the most excitement so far in the NBA playoffs and it is simply right that it finds its conclusion in Game-7, with the Denver Nuggets who have managed to equalize the scores (starting from 1-3 in the series) in a match where they took control of operations in the second quarter and never looked back.
The credit is almost exclusively to Jamal Murray, simply legendary. After having already achieved them in the defeat in Game-4, the Canadian ended Game-6 with another 50-point game, the result of a crazy 17/24 from the field and above all 9/12 from long distance. The number 27 of the Nuggets closed his game by scoring the last seven attempts, including five from three points, in an exhilarating crescendo that left him speechless with emotion in the interview at the end of the match.
If Murray took the limelight, Donovan Mitchell certainly didn’t stand by. The leader of the Jazz, who in this series has also signed two 50-point games (only Chamberlain, West, Jordan and Iverson like them), finished with 44 points, 14/25 shooting and 9/13 three-point, supported by Mike Conley’s 21 and Rudy Gobert’s 11 + 11. With other opponents maybe it would have been enough, but not in front of this Jamal Murray: race-7 scheduled for the night between Tuesday and Wednesday promises to be unmissable.
