I feel so proud of the team. Regardless of what happens from here this has been a successful season and an important experience for our young side.

Lillard and McCollum both shot under 30% from 3 against us this year. If that happens again this will be a quick series.

I have a feeling it won't go that way tho.

That win was HUGE. Got Game 1!

Joker - consistent and unbelievable. Let’s get to Portland up 2-0 and finish this is 4.

We need Harris and Craig to really lock down on them.

The best result for us long term is that we win in 7 games. The experience we've gained from these playoffs and our late playoff push last season has been tremendous

Game 3 too

Harris has finally found his groove a little since the playoffs have rolled around. If he and Craig are hitting a few threes per game between them we are going to be hard to beat

Just could not hang tough and execute in the clutch moments, Jokic aside.

Unfortunately Murray largely went missing in games 6 and 7, and while his FT were good, the misses, including Jokic very late was part of what killed us.

Never expected to get anywhere near this far at the start of the season, so assuming they can improve from experience and retain the core of the team over the summer, they should have something to rebuild launch into for the coming seasons.

Expected 6 seed and a 1st round exit at the start of the season.

Next year expecting a Finals birth


Not as if it's a given, but it is a real possibility especially if the Warriors break up a little bit. Hopefully the Rockets drop off, tho I expect the Lakers to be back in the mix. Would be content with making the WCF


In other news can't wait to sweep the Blazers next year, hopefully twice

And also remember there's no certainty we even ever get back to the conference semis with this squad. Tho their drive + jokic should confirm we go on to bigger and better things

The Nuggets are like a big family, I feel like these guys really want to keep this team together which is great considering what goes on around the League. Love it
