Many doubted this team before this season and even before the start of the playoffs.
Jokic and Murray have proven them wrong and are now closer to their biggest goal, the NBA championship.
Jokic recorded a triple-double in Game 1 while Murray posted a double-double, making it clear that teams can try to stop one of them, but the other will show up.
They’re a balanced team with a great supporting cast and players who seem to fit in really well on the pitch.
Even after this season, the Nuggets are very likely to continue to compete for titles for many years to come.
As long as they keep Jokic and Murray healthy, this team will be tough to beat.
The Nuggets have been patient with their duo and that patience is paying off this year.
