Blazers’ Enes Kanter trolls Nuggets after Game 7 win

Blazers’ Enes Kanter trolls Nuggets after Game 7 win

The Portland Trail Blazers, led by Damian Lillard, meet the Denver Nuggets, led by Nikola Jokic, in the deciding Game 7 of their best of seven NBA Western Conference Semifinals playoffs series on Sunday, May 12, 2019 (5/12/19) at Pepsi Center in Denver Colorado.

Portland will face of against the Warriors in its first Western Conference finals since 2000. And when Denver's lineup, the youngest in the playoffs, struggled against its much more experienced first-round opponent, the San Antonio Spurs, another early playoffs exit like the one circa 2013 seemed likely.

"There wasn't going to be any quit", Stotts said.

After scoring 15 points in the first half, CJ McCollum scored 14 points in the third quarter alone to will the Blazers back into this one. "He put his team on his back and made big play after big play".

TOP PERFORMERS: Jamal Murray leads the Nuggets with 2.0 made 3-pointers and averages 18.2 points while shooting 36.7 percent from beyond the arc.

"Seth did a good job of cutting off his lane and making him have to go over his head", McCollum said.

"Honestly, I got enough motivation".

The sight of the shadow of the dragon passing over King's Landing was straight from Bran's vision in House of the Undying. It's also not much of a fight considering The Hound's brother is a Frankenstein's monster and it runs on far too long.

After the game, McCollum gave his own "330" shout-out to James, while saying that his block reminded him of James's rejection of Andre Iguodala during Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals. It was a mini-version of 'Bron's block on Iggy some years ago.

"Somebody's got to go home, somebody's got to go to Cabo", McCollum said.

Lillard said it was just the spark the Blazers needed to complete the comeback from a 17-point first-half hole. "You got to have the coaches, training staff, the front office, security, everybody who's with us there every day". As possessions ground to a halt, and each second became exponentially more valuable, having a creator like McCollum, who could not only get to his spots but make tough shots and bend the defense to get other guys open, was the biggest difference in the game's most important minutes.

First, McCollum murders the Nuggets on the floor and then turns around to just murder their player Torrey Craig on social media.

"The guy I'm anxious about is Rodney Hood". "That's a shot he makes consistently". Craig played great 1v1 defense what a huge shot.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, we know the Nuggets weren't even supposed to be in this position.

The Portland Trail Blazers have failed to cover 17 of their last 26 games as a road underdog.
