The Denver Nuggets again stunned the experts beating the Los Angeles Clippers in today’s game six. Behind 34 points, 14 rebounds, and 7 assists from Nikola Jokic, Denver ran L.A out the gym.

Hard to believe, but the Nuggets center lit up game six with four three-pointers and noticeably improved rim protection. Jokic in particular was the focus of attention when he was called out on TNT’s broadcast for “shoddy defense.” The all-star big man has since answered the bell and led the charge for a dominant defensive game to force a winner-take-all.
Where was Kawhi?
Kawhi Leonard was frankly mediocre in this morning’s game, and no one cares to be quite honest. He’s a superstar that allegedly left a Raptors organization known for their hard work to sleep walk out in Los Angeles. Every Clipper that touched the floor played like they didn’t want to be there and that’s on their best player: Kawhi Leonard.
Paul George (still will never call him Playoff-P) came to play with a 33-point performance. That’s plenty production from the Robin of any team to close out a playoff series.
The little brothers of Los Angeles play with fire allowing this series to come down to a game 7, while LeBron and AD rest at the hotel. Assuming the Clippers emerge victorious in this series, the extra rest is surely to play a role in a six-seven game finale with the Lakers.
Hard to root for the “load-managing” Clippers in game seven, but it would give us the series basketball fans have been waiting for.
