The Internet thinks the Denver Nuggets will have a full schedule
Imagine being in the lead of a basketball game only to be crushed in the final moments of the game. The Clippers made every sports star’s nightmare a reality when they lost their second consecutive game in a row – trust us, this wasn’t any ordinary loss.
The Clippers failed to close out the series for a second time leaving fans speechless. Sports fans are well-aware that losing is a part of the game; however, what leaves Clippers fans baffled is how terrible their losses were. This was twice LA had given up a sizable lead.
What went wrong for the Clippers? Are they facing a streak of bad luck or are they just not practicing enough? The Clippers need to think fast and come up with a strategy, otherwise, they could be heading home on Tuesday after game seven against the Denver Nuggets. The Nuggets are dominating their matches and taking the season by storm – unlike the Clippers.

Given the last two consecutive games, the Clippers are heading into game seven with more pressure than ever. Will the Clippers turn this pressure into motivation and win game seven? Hopefully their basketball coach Doc Rivers will save them during the second half and lead them to reach the Western Conference Finals for the first time ever.
