  • Analyzing Nuggets’ Potential Playoff Seeding on The Final Night of The Regular Season

The Nuggets can not afford to lose game 2 and go down 2-0 to a Gregg Popovich team before heading to San Antonio.

"He was wide open, I think it's a great shot for us". As NBA.com's Scott Rafferty noted in his series preview, "of the five players who led the [Nuggets] in minutes, Paul Millsap is the only one who has been in the playoffs before (87 career games)".

Nuggets All-Star Nikola Jokic tallied a triple-double of 10 points, 14 rebounds and 14 assists, but was virtually a non-factor on offense as he nailed only 4 shots out of 9 attempts. "We're going to live with that", said Jokic. "I went up there with my dad and took my shots". "We tried to make everything tough on him and rebound the ball".

"Both bigs kind of never really got comfortable down there".

Jamal Murray hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 31.5 seconds left, and the host Denver Nuggets scored the final 15 points of the game to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 99-95 on Wednesday night to earn the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference. They joined the Nets, who won at Philadelphia, and Magic, who won at Toronto.

"I took some shots on every shot I missed, especially that one I missed, the open one at the end of the game", said Murray after the Nuggets fell 101-96.

"He's spectacular for somebody who got put into that position", Popovich said.

Gary Harris led Denver with 20 points and Murray had 17, but that was on 8-of-24 shooting, including 0 for 6 from the arc. "So hopefully he'll continue to play that way because it's gonna be a long series".

Denver: The Nuggets are 6-21 against the Spurs in the playoffs. As a team, the Nuggets shot 42 percent from the field and six of 28 from the 3-point line but they will be ruing their missed chances after surrendering home-court advantage so easily. Denver missed eight free throws.
