Nuggets make almost all their shots early, beat Clippers in Game 2

Nuggets make almost all their shots early, beat Clippers in Game 2”

Following Game 1, Malone focused on the Nuggets' poor job containing the ball, saying it was a "layup line" for the Clippers. Paul George is averaging 15.7 points and 5.2 rebounds while shooting 29.9% over the last 10 games for Los Angeles. You can also stream the game with Sling. "They got into us the entire game". It only took a few plays for Denver coach Michael Malone to like what he was seeing Saturday night. We made shots. There wasn't a big difference between Game 1 and Game 2.

BOTTOM LINE: The Los Angeles Clippers take on the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference second round with a 1-0 lead in the series.

The 23-year-old Denver Nuggets star was overcome with emotion after the victory - but he pulled himself together to explain why the shoes mean so much to him. It was an uncharacteristically off night for Leonard (13 points on 4-of-17 shooting), and George finished with 22 points on 7-of-19 shooting.

He only scored 13 points, but nine of those 13 helped close out the Clippers in the fourth quarter. "And we've got to be better".

The noticeable difference in the Nuggets was evident from tipoff, as they outscored the Clippers 44-25 in the first quarter. With the Nuggets up by seven, Jamal Murray crossed over Leonard - who staggered as he lost his man - hitting a step-back 3-pointer to give Denver a 10-point lead, 104-94, with a little over two minutes left. "We've shown that we're a very resilient group that can execute and find ways to win in close games down the stretch. It's great to be able to tie the series up and have that life and belief going into the next game". The Nuggets have never rallied from 0-2 down in a best-of-seven in their National Basketball Association history; they've won one of 13 series in the National Basketball Association after losing the first two games, and that was the best-of-five upset of top-seeded Seattle in the 1994 first round. That ailment lingered into the postseason, forcing Harris to miss the first five games of Denver's first-round series against the Utah Jazz.

Jamal Murray had morphed into the human torch to keep the Nuggets' season alive, but his struggles from the first rounds' Game 7 carried into Game 1 of this series.
