Nuggets beat Clipper
to force Game 7 decider
Denver's Nikola Jokic had game highs of 34 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists yesterday, powering the Nuggets over the Los Angeles Clippers 111-98 to level their NBA playoff series.
The Nuggets, who also had 21 points from Jamal Murray and Gary Harris, recovered from a 19-point deficit in the third quarter to match the Clippers at 3-3 in the Western Conference semifinal, setting up a winner-take-all Game Seven tomorrow.
"We don't have pressure," Jokic said. "All the pressure is on them. We have to play at a high level and give our best.”
