The Denver Nuggets pulled off the unthinkable in the NBA Playoffs, coming back from 3-1 deficits against the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers in back to back series. Their run just fell short on Saturday night though, losing in five games to the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals.
Nevertheless, the Nuggets opened up a lot of eyes in the bubble, highlighted by their extremely talented star duo in Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic.
The latter has been considered one of the most versatile bigs in the game. But Murray, who has lacked consistency throughout his four-year career, was one of the most electric players in Orlando throughout the seeding games and most notably, the postseason.
