The Los Angeles Clippers looked well on their way to closing out their second-round series vs the Denver Nuggets in Game on Friday night, leading by as many as 15 points in the second half. But the Nuggets outscored the Clippers 67-49 in the second half to come away with 111-105 victory in the Orlando bubble.
Jamal Murray (26 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists) and Nikola Jokic (22 points, 14 rebounds, and 5 assists) did their usual thing on offense, and Michael Porter Jr. hit a huge three down the stretch that had TNT’s Kevin Harlan going wild.
