Netease Sports reported on September 25:
On September 25, Beijing time, the Nuggets lost 108-114 in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals
What a familiar scene.
As the third in the Western Conference in the regular season, the Nuggets' playoff prospects have not received much optimism. They faced off in the first round
Unexpectedly, the Nuggets stubbornly pulled back in the last three games. Murray scored a staggering 142 points from G4 to G6, while the stifling G7 score was 80-78.
In the second round, they met the Clippers with two giants, and they were even less optimistic. In the first four games, the Nuggets fell behind 1-3 again, seemingly dead end. Many media have prepared the Clippers' first entry into the Western Conference Finals.
As a result, the Nuggets played back again, and G7 beat their opponents even more. Murray scored 40 points.
Then it's now against the Lakers.
The Nuggets had a miserable loss in the first game. If G2 were not for Davis's magical three-point buzzer lore, the Nuggets would have actually won. The G3 Nuggets also won strongly, and Murray said after the game that they should lead 2-1.
Basically, in this series, the Nuggets didn't play as if they were left behind. Although they have been chasing points today, they have also made the Lakers very uncomfortable. Zhan Mei has almost reached the limit.
Therefore, even if they are behind 1-3, because they are the Nuggets, because they have Murray, no one dares to conclude that they are no more. This intensity of the game also greatly enhances the viewing of the Western Conference Finals. The Lakers are the team that is ambition to win the championship, and the Nuggets are the real powerhouse and are definitely the most suitable test for them.
Lakers defeat the Nuggets with a total score of 3 to 1
