                                lol drama clickbait.. dude was missing a lot lately,, so he finaly did some scores and he is saving? for being awake? Jamal suck with shooting he is doing othe r things good.. is it mental or what but he sucks .. imagine first game he made shots Denver would ate them for lunch with that double on Jokic who had 10+ assists imagine how many he would had if he throw buggets not bricks,,

                                                        He didn't, Jokic was as efficient as always, Millsap had a great game and even with Plumlee on the floor they didn't fall far behind

                                                        Denver would have won game 1 if Murray attacked the basket and dumped it to Jokic for the game winner. Spurs didnt win easily

                                                          Of course it was easy. Other than the final moments of the game. The spurs were cruising for the entire game that qualifies as an easy win.

                                                              All your breakdowns are great especially how plays happen but the reason the Nuggets didnt win game one was when their star player and their only star player Jokic was double teamed he made incredible plays to find the open non contested shooter ANDDDD THEY MISSED.. THEY MISSED IT WAS HARD TO WATCH!! SOOOO BADDD!! Murray, Harris and OMG the worst player I have ever seen in the NBA Will Barton... horrific player.. worst basketball brain ever.. forces every shot and throws balls up in the air when driving into a full lane horrific instead of kicking out or running another play!! Jokic did everything right!! It pisses me of that these casual fanboys have no understanding of basketball and just because Jokic didnt shoot the ball and didnt get 40 points he played badly.. in reality he should of had 30 assists in that game!!

They could have tied the game!! Also the ball should have gone to jokic on the play where Murray missed!! Give the ball to your star player!! Popp double teams Jokic because he is their only threat!!

The Nuggets shot 21% beyond the 3 point line in Game 1, many of those they missed were just wide open 3s. That was just not their normal shooting performance. Yet they lost the game only by 5 and they had a clean look mid-range opportunity to win the game as they trailed by 1 in the last 10 seconds. They did a great job to stop LA in the low post and the Spurs made a series of difficult shots in the 4th quarter. The Nuggets should've won the game if they shoot their normal percentage. Game 2 was pretty much the same in the first 3 quarter in that the Nuggets were just unable to make those wide open shots they normally make, yet they were still able to stay in the game and when they finally got their shooters their normal performance they were able to come back. I hope that you can do more analysis on Denver's offense, those handoffs and back door cuts, which to me is a lot of fun to watch.
