The sensational never-say-die Denver Nuggets on Sunday, September 13 came from behind to erase a 19-points difference against Los Angeles Clippers.

With 22 minutes remaining, Nuggets fought hard in the second half and extended the Western Conference semifinals series to a Game 7 against the Clippers.

Facing elimination for the fifth time in this postseason, the Nuggets showed the resolve of a team that believes it can write even more history than it already has.

Nuggets superstar Nikola Jokic had a game-high 34 points, snatched 14 rebounds, and dished seven assists. His four 3-pointers helped crush the Clippers’ second-half will. Jamal Murray added 21 points, five assists, and five rebounds, while Gary Harris registered a playoff-high 16 points.

Kawhi Leonard and Paul George combined for 58 points, but their teammates looked dejected as the Nuggets poured it on.
