The nuggets had four series victory in these years which is the most concentrated playoff success since joining the NBA. The Nuggets can advance to the western conference finals 2nd time in a row if they can beat the Phoenix Suns in the next round. Denver Nuggets showed great resolve to win this series with potential MVp of this season Jokic who had 36 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists.
Neither team played well defense throughout the series nor this game was no exception at all Portland fouled way too much in the second half. This boosted the Denver offense and took them out of their offensive rhythm. MPJ scored 22 points in just 10 minutes for Denver Nuggets which is a historic quarter. Monte Morris had 22 points, 9 assists, 3 steals to step up for the Nuggets.
On the other side, Daman Lilliand was out of rhythm after his game 5 heroics and had only 23 points in the 3 quarters going 1-6 in the 4th quarter. Nurkic who had defended the likely MVp Jokic relatively well in this series but his quick foul trouble had really hurt the Blazers and there was no difference in this game. As he defened well in the 1st half without fouling but quick 3 fouls led the Denver team flustered their offense from there and never looked back with his foul, the Nuggets went on a 35-11 en route to a 126-115 series ending game 6 victory. Damian Lilliard really poured out his heart but he is in a desperate need of a deserving teammate to move on. It was amazing series for both teams. Great game by Lilliard (unguardable) and Jokic but the Joker has the whole team on his back with ease.
