Nuggets Fall to Blazers in Historic Playoff Game
The Nuggets (and us fans) suffered a heart breaking loss on Friday night. After a four overtime periods the Blazers took the win 140-137. The fourth overtime was a full-out defensive battle as it was obvious both teams were exhausted. Jokic played 65 minutes, scoring 33 points with 18 rebounds. That's the fourth-most playing time any player has played, in any game, in all of playoff history.
After the game Nuggets head coach Michael Malone said:
Lots of highs and lows...I couldn't have been prouder of our guys for the fight. We fought, we fought, we fought. That's all you can ask for.
