The Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz top players talked about a big Game 7 on Tuesday. Both teams played an epic Game 6 which went down to the wire. Jamal Murray, in an inspired effort, went for 50 points and Donovan Mitchell went for 44 points.

The rivalry between these two teams has been heightened after this series. Game 7 will do no more than make the bad blood between the two teams even worse. Top players Nikola Jokic and Donovan Mitchell talked about Game 7.

‘As a fan perspective I see it and I respect it, but I can’t tell you as a player that I want to play Game 7 if we’re up 3-1,” Donovan Mitchell said. ”I don’t think anybody wants to do that but we’re here, so play the hand that you’re dealt and we’re going to go out there and execute and do what we’ve got to do.”

”To be honest, it’s Game 7 for the last two games for us. It’s win or go home for us,” Nikola Jokic said. ”That’s why we’re playing a little bit relaxed. We have nothing to worry about. If we lose we’re going to home. That’s why the energy is really high. We just need to give the effort. Don’t give up on the plays. Rebound. Just help each other. That’s why we’re playing really good right now.”

Game 7 will be all the talk in the upcoming days. After an epic Game 6, everybody will be waiting to see what will happen to conclude this series. The Jamal Murray and Donovan Mitchell matchup should make Game 7 live up to the hype.
