Here are the highlights of the Game 7 Western Conference Quarterfinals-Finals match between the Utah Jazz and Denver Nuggets which was scheduled on September 2, 2020 (Local Time).
The Nuggets will now advance to the Western Conference semis after they escaped the Jazz in a tightly fought Game 6, 80-78.
The deciding match for both squads is completely different compared to their first six head-to-head duel where Utah and Denver focused on their defense.
Neither Jamal Murray nor Donovan Mitchell was able to reach the 30-point mark which they easily broke in their previous games.
The “Joker” For The Lead!
Then came the silent operator for the Nuggets where Nikola Jokic took the center stage where he won his inside-the-paint battle against Rudy Gobert.
Jokic’s hook shot in the critical moment of the fourth quarter gave Denver an upper hand. Jazz’s guard Mike Conley had the last shot of the game where he attempted to beat the buzzer with his three-pointer yet the ball didn’t found the bottom of the net.
The Nuggets will meet the Los Angeles Clippers in the next round which will start on September 4, 2020 at 9:00 AM.
