The Los Angeles Clippers took a 3-1 lead in their NBA Western Conference semifinal series against the Denver Nuggets, but they have not been able to close the deal.
While the Los Angeles Lakers have already booked their spot in the Western Conference Finals, their counterparts now have a nervy game 7 to deal with Tuesday, with all the momentum going towards the Nuggets after two straight wins.
But Kawhi Leonard did not leave the champion Raptors to go out of the playoffs in the second round: he came to go back-to-back. Leonard’s teams have gone 17-4 when he has suited up more than twice in a series, and that should move to 18-4.
