The Nuggets have massively overachieved after Murray went down. Tons of respect, but that was going to run into trouble sooner or later.Boy the way it's looking it might be time to get out the brooms for the nuggets. Ouch I thought they'd put up more of a fight.
But without Murray and Barton they have no way to effectively counter CP3 and booker.
Ayton has been the driving force. He was their biggest question mark, and with CP3 hurt against the Lakers, before Bookers two huge games in Game 5 and Game 6, Ayton was arguably their best player.Ayton.. is taking over... one of the very most underrated storylines of the year is Aytons rise to power out west...
There's no C outperforming him so far in these playoffs his stats are SICK
Ayton can focus on Jokic and is doing a good job. Porter hurt his back and was really bad. I think they are just too injured. I'll bet the get at least one game, but Jokic is gonna have to get like 40 a game for them to compete. Unless Rivers or Barton can really get going I think they are sunk.
