Jamal Murray's seventeen points seemed like fewer, and Paul Milsap's ten, on three-of-thirteen shooting from the field, was inexcusable.

McCollum, who had 30 points in Portland's Game 6 victory, came up big on a night Damian Lillard made just 3 of 17 shots for 13 points.

"The King" agreed, giving McCollum a shoutout after the game on Twitter and declaring that his favorite play was the chasedown block.

The Blazers showed an impressive amount of resolve Sunday.

Denver's bench extended the lead to 39-22 after the first five minutes of the second as the defense continued to get stops. The pace was slow.

The Nuggets couldn't get much production outside of Nikola Jokic and Gary Harris.

Just an astonishing display of Game 7 jitters as shooters couldn't find their touch whatsoever. The Nuggets ultimately shot a minuscule 37.1% from the field, which was their downfall.

They beat the San Antonio Spurs in a Game 7 in the first round while Portland's core group has not been in a winner-take-all matchup. His defense wasn't a fatal flaw.

With under five minutes to play, the Blazers were clinging to a four-point lead when Nikola Jokic secured a rebound and tossed a flawless outlet pass to Jamal Murray. Murray was the big disappointment.

Portland was lucky to have McCollum. "Nikola Jokić is an wonderful player, they're a young team, they're going to have a lot of success moving forward". Zach Collins played some highly competitive minutes, and Turner's presence was vital, but pretty much everyone else had notable struggles. The sentiment hasn't changed heading into Sunday's Game 7 in Denver.

CJ McCollum's two-point shot was a crucial make in Game 7.

Denver's season was still a success.

Kanter is having a great postseason run, and he's making the most out of it.

Can their young core get it done again?

The Blazers are moving on after two straight years of seeing their seasons end in sweeps.

"There wasn't going to be any quit", Stotts said. All the Nuggets had to do was win one of the next two games in order to earn a trip to California and a finals tilt against the Golden State Warriors; that team's biggest star, Kevin Durant, had just suffered an injury that opened the door to an upset at least a crack or two. Both on the ABC broadcast and on social media, the Blazers revealed that Hood had suffered a left knee hyperextension.
