    For the second time in the last five years, Doc Rivers and the Los Angeles Clippers blew a 3-1 series lead and missed the Western Conference Finals.

    Nikola Jokic had a triple-double with 16 points, 22 rebounds and 13 assists and Jamal Murray added 40 points as Michael Malone and the Denver Nuggets punch their ticket to the Western Conference Finals after beating the Clippers 104-89 in Game 7.

    It is the Nuggets first Western Conference Finals appearance since 2009 where they have payback on their minds against LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers with Game 1 on Friday.

    Kawhi Leonard and Paul George combined for 10/38 from the field including 4/18 combined from downtown as the Nuggets outscored the Clippers 50-33 in the second half.

    The Clippers shot 9/35 from downtown and shot 37% from the field.

    sorry if I offended, but just to be clear I was not talking about the NBA players, I was referring to Jacob Blake which LeBron James decided to walk off the job for and the WNBA female players decided to put on their t-shirts. Yes that's right, women who have fought for empowerment their whole lives are now holding Jacob Blake in high esteem

    Meanwhile in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, the Miami Heat outlasted the Boston Celtics in overtime, 117-114.

    Dramatic final minutes including Jimmy Butler's clutch three-point play and Bam Adebayo's game-saving block.

    The Miami Heat are up 2-0 on the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals after a 106-101 win in Game 2.

    The Celtics were up 13 points at the break, 60-47 with Kemba Walker leading the way with 23 points for the game.

    But the Heat outscored the Celtics 37-17 in the third quarter and had six players in double figures with Game 1 hero Bam Adebayo having a double-double with 21 points and 10 rebounds and the Heat defense caused the Celtics to turn the ball over 20 times.

    The Young Heat would like to make it a 3-0 deficit on Saturday.

    Re: 2019-20 NBA Basketball Season Thread

    Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat are one win away from their first NBA Finals appearance since 2014 after holding off the Boston Celtics in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Butler had 24 points and nine rebounds and Bam Adebayo had a double-double of 20 points and 12 rebounds.

    But Miami's hero came off the bench Tyler Herro who had 37 points coming off the bench.

    Jayson Tatum was one of five Celtics players in double figures with 28 points, but the Celtics had 19 turnovers in the game to just 8 for Miami.

    The Heat can book their spot in the NBA Finals with a win Game 5 on Friday while a Celtics victory forces a Game 6 on Sunday.

    Re: 2019-20 NBA Basketball Season Thread

    Do Nikola Jokic, Jamal Murray and the Denver Nuggets have LeBron James, Anthony Davis and the Los Angeles Lakers where they want them?

    The Lakers take Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals, 114-108 to go up 3-1 with a shot at clinching their first Western Conference title since they last won it all in 2010 on Saturday.

    AD and LeBron combined for 60 points including 24 of 28 from the free throw line.

    The Lakers also outrebounded the Nuggets 41-33 including 12-6 on the offensive glass.

    Michael Malone and the Nuggets already have two 3-1 comebacks this postseason against the Utah Jazz and the Los Angeles Clippers. Will they do it a third time against the Lakers?

    Re: 2019-20 NBA Basketball Season Thread

    For the ninth time in the last 10 years, LeBron James is heading to the NBA Finals.

    The Los Angeles Lakers win their 32nd Western Conference title after eliminating the Denver Nuggets in five games, 117-107.

    LeBron had a triple double with 38 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists.

    The Lakers will await the winner of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics as the Heat lead 3-2 heading to a Game 6 on Sunday September 27.

    The 2020 NBA Finals are set.

    LeBron James will take on his former team as the Los Angeles Lakers will take on Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat.

    The Heat eliminated the Boston Celtics in six games after a 125-113 win in Game 6.

    BB55's Picks - 2020 NBA Finals

    Los Angeles Lakers vs. Miami Heat
    BB55's Pick: LAL over MIA in six.

    Why? Pat Riley and Erik Spoelstra quickly rebuilt and transformed the Miami Heat from the Big Three era of LeBron James-Dwyane Wade-Chris Bosh to the Jimmy Butler-Bam Adebayo era with a lot of balance of youth and veterans behind them in Goran Dragic, Duncan Robinson, Tyler Herro and Andre Iguodala who is facing a LeBron-led team in the NBA Finals for the fifth time in the last six years.

    However, despite having multiple ways to beat the Indiana Pacers, Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics thanks to their depth, multiple defenders to go up against the likes of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jayson Tatum and Kemba Walker, the Heat will be tested against LeBron and Anthony Davis especially in the offensive glass and their supporting cast is not that bad especially when you have NBA Finals experience behind LeBron in Dwight Howard, Rajon Rondo and Danny Green.

    The Heat will make it tough for the Lakers especially in crunch time, but in the end, LeBron and AD helps the Lakers have a little more extra to cross the finish line and win their first NBA title since 2010.

    Game 1 of the 2020 NBA Finals belongs to Frank Vogel and the Los Angeles Lakers as they pulled away from the Miami Heat, 116-98.

    Anthony Davis and LeBron James dominate the duo of Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler.

    AD had 34 points while LeBron was one assist shy of a triple-double with 25 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists.

    Butler led the Heat with 23 points, but the Heat were outscored from distance 15 to 11 and the Lakers shot 25 of 27 from the free throw line to the Heat's 11 of 14 including Davis' 10 for 10 from the charity stripe.

    The Lakers also had the edge on the glass, 54-36 including 9-5 on the offensive boards.

    It got even worse for Erik Spoelstra and the Heat as Goran Dragic, Butler and Adebayo were banged up.

    Dragic had a foot injury on this play and did not return.

    Adebayo had a strained left shoulder.

    Butler had a sprain in his left ankle before halftime.

    Game 2 will take place on Friday October 2.
