NBA Basketball School India students participate in Virtual Fans Engagement activity during Game 7 between LA Clippers and Denver Nuggets

History was made in Game 7 of the Western Conference Semifinals between the LA Clippers and the Denver Nuggets.

The Nuggets upset the second-seeded Clippers by defeating them 104-89 in the winner-take-all contest to cap off a 3-1 comeback for a second playoff series in a row. Thus, eliminating a team many predicted to be an NBA Finals lock. Denver became the first team in NBA history to have multiple 3-1 comebacks in the same postseason.

This history was witnessed by a few young kids of the NBA Basketball Schools India program. They also got a chance to be part of the Virtual Fans Engagement activity during the game:

Since the Coronavirus pandemic spread in India, the many young kids of this program have had to remain at home.

So, NBA Basketball School, since April, has conducted special virtual classes, video calls with NBA Academy India student-athletes, and was most recently also part of India on Track's Online Sports Festival to continue their basketball-development programs in the country.
