Nikola Jokic and Devin Booker starred in a controversial moment during Game 4 of the Phoenix Suns-Denver Nuggets second-round series. The Joker lost his cool and committed a foul that earned him the ejection.
Getting swept by the Suns wasn’t a disappointment. Approximately speaking, It was inevitable. Some indignity or another was bound to usher the Nuggets out of the playoffs sooner than they deserved to go.
In the end, the Denver Nuggets just didn’t have it. Now, “it” can be defined in many ways. If you’re a homer, “it” can be boiled down to simply “Jamal Murray.” Homer or not, the Nuggets missed Murray, the star of last year’s Bubble who was lost late in the season to a torn ACL.
