Led by the 2nd triple-double of the series for Nikola Jokic, (21 points, 15 rebounds, 10 assists), the Nuggets defeated the Spurs 90-86 in Game 7 to advance to the Western Conference Semifinals. With this triple-double, Jokic becomes the 3rd player in NBA history to record multiple triple-doubles in the first Playoff appearance of their career, joining LeBron James (2, 2005-06) and Magic Johnson (5, 1979-80). Jokic’s triple-double is also the 1st in a Game 7 since LeBron James in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals (6/19/16). Jamal Murray led all scorers with 23 points (9-19 FG) to go along with 5 rebounds for the Nuggets, while Rudy Gay led the Spurs with 21 points (8-17 FG) and 8 rebounds.
