*Surprise! There will NOT be a LA vs LA showdown to see who represents the West in the 2020 NBA Finals.
That’s because the Denver Nuggets made history by completing another stunning comeback as they reached the Western Conference finals after blitzing the Los Angeles Clippers in the final game of their NBA series.
The bottom line is Denver won Game 7 of the Western Conference semi-finals 104-89 on Tuesday to set up a blockbuster playoff showdown against top seeds the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Nuggets overpowered the shocked Clippers as they became the first team in NBA history to overcome a 3-1 deficit to win a series twice in the same postseason, having rallied past the Utah Jazz.
Trailing 56-54 at half-time, the Nuggets outscored Kawhi Leonard’s Clippers 50-33 in the second half in Orlando, Florida, where Denver will contest their first Conference final since losing to the Lakers in 2008-09.
