Lakers could beat them wire to wire in each of these games.

The answer to Denver's strategy and how we've played them is we can have great quarters when they have good quarters and we get leads.

But we had to answer their great quarters with a good quarter at minimum. And what we'd been doing was answering their great quarters with terrible ones.

But if we can continue to have our good to great quarters while they are struggling, and then when they go on their inevitable run, respond with a good quarter or another great one, we can beat them wire to wire each time.

The inevitability is that the Nuggets are eventually gonna turn it up and go on their run, if we can sustain what we're doing well and hold the lead when they go on that run and not really let them get/keep momentum, they'll come back down and we'll push the lead further.

Russell and AR need to keep showing up. And doubling the joker might help too. Just a tall order for three more straight games.

Plus side, they kept Aaron Gordon at 3 rebounds, he was part of those Nuggets run in 2nd half getting them 2nd chance shots.

Gordon was the difference last year, and again this year. AD made sure he didn’t get those rebounds this game.

If the 94 Nuggets could get blown out the first two games on the road as everyone expected and win 3 straight on the 63 win Supersonics to that series, we can win 3 straight against these Nuggets.

All I can say is temper your expectations. We blew our chances already

Oh yea, those 94 Nuggets as the inexperienced #8 seed (also severely talent deficient) went down 3-0 to Utah the very next series after THE most improbable comeback in NBA history (this Supersonics comeback is the most improbable to me because they did this to the #1 seed best record in the league Supersonics after being blown out on the road first 2 games and their best scorer Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf was completely shut down by Gary Payton the entire series) and came back to tie Utah, before falling in Game 7.

Its definitely possible now especially with Murray hobbled and the tenure of this series. But this next game will be the hardest to win.

I would feel much better if lebron made that wide open 3 in game 2 or we didn’t lay an egg in game 3

We just need one more two-way starter, a better coach, and a backup big. All three of those things are achievable this summer. 2 of those 3 were available all of this past season.

Well if the Bo Sox could win in 04 after getting Mariano Rivera of all people to blow a couple saves after being down in Games 4 and 5, we can comeback on Denver. Would love to see us make a run like the LA Kings in 2014 when they won several Game 7s and the first round, they were down 3-0 to the San Jose Sharks before coming back to win.

Doesn't say anything about their ability to win the series, but just stopping their losing streak to this team is huge.


looks like they saw somethinh to hang to in this game, and murray is injured. maybe there will be a miracle. one game at a time.


The smart money is us losing in game 5. Denver is going to be juiced, and the Lakers might just be short of energy after going all out to avoid a sweep. But if we somehow steal game 5, then you know for sure Lebron would be willing to go all out for legacy to try to complete a never before done comeback in the NBA. Extremely slim hope, but something to enjoy for a couple of days until we likely lose in game 5.

Smart money was also on Phoenix beating Dallas the year they won 64 games in Game 7 after smashing Dallas in each of the home games. Lets just hope we are blessed as the greatest organization to see what would be the greatest title run EVER. Hell the Rockets did it when they seemed down and out vs Utah in 95 and after they lost Game 1, their chemistry was so fractured, they had to send Vernon Maxwell home to not play the rest of the playoffs.

I hope you are right, but I would be ok if we lose on Monday, season has been a decent one with some sour taste in the mouth.

20 point lead in game 2 we gave up really biting us on the ass!!!!!

We didn't win so that's irrelevant. I'm seriously not into the "what if" game, I'm about what is.



lol my lady told me the same s#%! lol (great minds think alike?)

I’ll admit I was childishly venting out , heat of moment.
Missed opportunities throughout the whole season tbh

On a lighter note I really missed Stu and Billy Mac 💜💛 tonight to say something controversial on LG 😂😂😂💀💀💀

ESPN’s new lineup is dreadful

Crazy this team had double digit lead in all 4 games.
