2019 Playoffs: (2) Denver vs. (7) San Antonio

Postby Lamrock on Fri Apr 12, 2019 4:10 am

Probably the sexiest pick for an upset in the first round. The veteran Spurs take on a Nuggets team returning to the playoffs after a five year absence. Denver seems vulnerable - Jokic could struggle in the playoffs, they've struggled against elite teams, they're up against Popovich, etc.

But while I would have chosen the Jazz or Thunder to upset them, I actually think the Nuggets got this. The Spurs don't really have a guy to stop Jokic, and DeMar has never been a major factor come playoff time. With the way things have shaken out with the playoff bracket, Denver is arguably favored to make it to the WCF. This is the first step. Nuggets in 6.

Lamidrange Aldridge gonna take Jokic to school and DeRozan will have a good postseasn with no Lowry to hold him back.

I was looking at the matchups on my phone at work this morning and thought "Oh, cool; Duncan and the Spurs are visiting Anthony & the Nuggs"... am I the only one who gets stuck in certain eras? It's kinda sad really.

Now that I finally woke up from my coma, this is kinda a boring series that will probably turn out super exciting and competitive for both fanbases. I voted for Perko, but an upset could up for order and it'll be closely decided.

I've been waiting all year for the nuggets to fall from the #2 spot, but they've held onto it impressively. They take this one in 5

Perko for MVP as he takes his game to The Next Level!

I agree that there's a strong possibility for an upset here, but I will go with the Nuggets in six.

Against Boston, you can go down 1-0 and still be fine;

Had to vote for the TNL reference, obviously. I also would have accepted "Nikola Jokic is Borislav Perko".

Anyway, I have the benefit of being late on this, so if the Nuggets don't get it done in 6, I think the Spurs will win it in 7. Spurs have the benefit of having one of the greatest coaches of all time, which I think would matter a lot if this series gets to a 7th game.

No 3pters go in, no win for Spurs

If Murray plays well again and same for whoever fills in at Sf, Denver advances

Want Spurs to advance. Pop needs to do some voodoo magic to keep this team afloat.

If Pop wins game 7, he'll deserve the GOAT coach title

Sorry but you forgot the best choker in the playoffs is in the Spurs roster.

Those final 25 seconds or so were bizarre. I know it was already a two possession game and victory was a long shot, but it seemed like the Spurs didn't even want to try to win. Hats off to Murray for the big shot, though.

Definitely comparable to those AI lapses.
