Denver Nuggets Advance To Conference Finals In NBA Shock

They made a stunning fightback to defeat the much favoured LA Clippers.

The LA Lakers will face the Denver Nuggets in the NBA's western conference finals. 

It's after the Nuggets overcame the Los Angeles Clippers in a deciding game 7 in their playoff series last night. 

Jamal Murray scored 40 points to seal the upset and complete a stunning fightback.

The much fancied Clippers had led the best of seven series 3-1 before centre Nikola Jokic took the series by the scruff of the neck and led Denver to a three game winning run to advance. 

It give LA coach Doc Rivers in the unenviable record of being the only coach in NBA history to lose three post season series after holding a 3-1 lead.
