That was ugly.

The Los Angeles Clippers were up 3-1 on Denver and led by double digits in every one of the last three games, but couldn’t close the series out. Denver showed the resistance, the grit, and the ability to execute under pressure in eliminating the Clippers from the playoffs.

NBA Twitter had some serious schadenfreude with the entitled Clippers — and that started with Portland’s Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum.

My last tweet before I finish this glass. They did vote they ain’t wanna play no more. . . But I didn’t think they was gonna go out like that 😂

The Nuggets two superstars, Jamal Murray with 40 points and Jokic with a triple double 16-22-13, outplayed and dominated Paul George and Kawhi Leonard who combined for 24 points. 😳

No coach has comeback from a 3-1 deficit twice.

Mike Malone can do it twice in a row!

Only one coach has blown multiple 3-1 leads (this would be his third)…
