It took a somewhat miraculous 19-point comeback for the Denver Nuggets to even force a Game 7 but all that would be just preamble to what they hope to accomplish Tuesday night. In the first round of the playoffs, the Nuggets won three straight games over the Jazz to pull off the infamous 3-1 comeback. They advanced from that series despite getting outscored by a total of 24 points across the seven games, in large part because they caught fire when it mattered most — outscoring the Jazz by 41.7 points per 100...

Desperate to do something to switch up the Nuggets‘ fortunes, wing scorer Michael Porter Jr. has asked to be more involved offensively rather than letting Jokic and Murray take turns down the floor.

    The NBA narrowly avoided one of the most controversial endings in playoff history on Tuesday night in the bizarre closing seconds of the Jazz-Nuggets series. With Denver leading 80-78, Utah star Donovan Mitchell had the ball stripped from him by Gary Harris with 11 seconds left, sending the Nuggets down the court with Game 7 seemingly in hand. However, Torrey Craig’s wide-open layup — you could argue he should have just pulled it out to drain more time off the clock — clanged off the rim and was rebounded by Jazz center Rudy Gobert. Before Gobert throws his outlet pass to Mike Conley, it appears his left foot steps out of bounds — or was it hovering over the line?...
