The stat is ubiquitous in this conference finals: No team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit in the NBA playoffs. The Los Angeles Lakers face such a hole in Monday night’s Game 4 in Denver. The Denver Nuggets have never swept a playoff opponent.
“We know the next game will be another test,” Jamal Murray said. According to the Associated Press. “They’re going to come out more aggressive. [Anthony Davis] More aggressive. LeBron [James] will be more aggressive, so the crowd will be bigger.”
In a season where the Western Conference has never been fully settled, the Nuggets have clearly risen to the occasion and proven their dominance over all comers.
“I mean, I never doubted my team,” Nikola Jokic said. According to the Associated Press. “We have some good players who can step up at the right moment and that’s what we did.”
