Coming back a 12-point second-quarter deficit, the Nuggets pulled off another comeback win in Game 7 of their Conference Semifinals series against the Clippers.
The third consecutive comeback win meant that Denver had pulled off another 3-1 series comeback, becoming the first team in NBA history to do in the same postseason. The victory helped them improve to 6-0 elimination games in the 2020 playoffs, tied with the 1994 Denver Nuggets for the most in postseason history.
It also leads them to their fourth Conference Finals appearance in franchise history and the first since 2009.
