NBA players react to Nuggets completing 3-1 series comeback vs. Clippers


The Denver Nuggets have completed the 3-1 series comeback, booting out the Los Angeles Clippers to move on to the Western Conference Finals. Right after the upset victory, NBA players flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts.

Nikola Vucevic of the Orlando Magic expects fans to slander the hell out of the Clippers. After all, they were the top favorites to advance to the NBA’s Western Conference Finals. However, Vucevic wants everyone to turn their eyes to the Nuggets for what they’ve done.

Kevin Love of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Jamal Crawford admitted that they wanted to see the Los Angeles Lakers and the Clippers in the Western Conference Finals. Dubbed as the “Battle of LA,” the West Finals would’ve featured LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Paul George, and Kawhi Leonard — all of which are considered as the best players in the NBA.

Crawford harked back to 2009 when many fans and analysts wanted a Cavaliers and Lakers NBA Finals — a duel that would’ve featured LeBron James and Kobe Bryant.

NBA icon Dwyane Wade showered Jamal Murray with praise for his splendid efforts. Note that this is the second series in this year’s playoffs that the Nuggets came back from a 3-1 deficit. Murray was a big factor in the comeback.

As expected Utah Jazz big man Rudy Gobert is not too thrilled by the Nuggets’ victory. They were the first victim of the team’s 3-1 comeback in the first round of the playoffs.

Analyst Kendrick Perkins lashed out on the Clippers once again.

And finally, Elfrid Payton of the New York Knicks expressed his confusion on how the Clippers blew a 3-1 series lead.
