It was not the game everyone expected. We all thought when we woke up this morning that we would be getting ready for the Clippers Vs Lakers. We all thought the Clippers defense would close the game out. We did not expect Jamal Murray to get 40 points. We did not expect 24 combined points from Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. We did not expect a Denver Nugget blow out over the Clippers. The Clippers were down by 20 points in the 4th quarter before losing by 15 (104-89). In the 4th Quarter Kawhi and George combined for zero points in the 4th Quarter, Kawhi actually did not score in the whole second half. The only ones that believed it could happen was the Denver Nuggets and that’s all that mattered. Nikola Jokic had a triple double 16 points, 13 assist and 22 rebounds. Jokic proved to be the key to the series doing whatever it took to win the series. When asked were they worried about the Lakers Jokic said “They have to worry about us to”.
