NBA players show no mercy on Twitter in Clippers-Nuggets Game 7 shocker


Stephen A. stunned by Nuggets’ Game 7 winStephen A. cannot believe what he’s watching as the Nuggets upset the Clippers in Game 7 of their NBA Western Conference semifinals series.

The LA Clippers and the Denver Nuggets faced off in a deciding Game 7 to determine who would face the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference finals. Would we get the “Battle for L.A.” matchup we’d all be waiting for?

Not quite.

The Nuggets outscored the Clippers 50-33 after halftime while holding LA’s top stars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George to 2-of-18 shooting in the second half. The 104-89 victory puts Denver in the conference finals for the first time since 2009, when they eventually lost to the Lakers in six games.

After Tuesday’s game, NBA stars and celebrities had some interesting thoughts on the Clippers’ performance, along with plenty of praise for the performances of Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray in the win.
