Another collapse in the second half of the Clippers who go to the interval above two points but suffer a partial of 50-33 in the second half of the game, when they shoot under 29% from the field and only 3/17 from three points. The second half of the Nuggets, on the other hand, is almost perfect, with 47% of three shots (8/17), 13 assists on 17 baskets and also dominating rebounds (29-18). Denver becomes the first team ever to win two series in the same playoffs by coming back from under 1-3.
Nikola Jokic is the engine from which the whole attack of the Nuggets starts and develops: this is demonstrated once again by Game-7, with the Serbian playing an amazing 360-degree game ended in triple double (already sent to books after three quarters ) with 16 points, 22 rebounds and 13 assists, and only 13 attempts. He also adds 3 blocks and 2 steals and closes with an eloquent +22 plus / minus: a legendary performance.
Jamal Murray is no exception, after a relatively quiet first quarter (only 5 points) explodes in the second, scoring 20. He goes to the interval with 25 points (and 11/17 shooting) and closes with 40 thanks to a fourth period in which he scores another 12 points: in the end he has 15/26 shooting with 6/13 from the arc but also 5 assists and 4 rebounds. His dream playoffs aren’t over yet.
