Magic Johnson shared his excitement for Game 7 between the Denver Nuggets and the Utah Jazz on Tuesday night.

The NBA legend and Hall of Famer took to Twitter and wrote a preview of what to expect in that do-or-die game.

“I’m so excited for Denver vs. Utah Game 7 & to see Jamal Murray vs. Donovan Mitchell! For Denver to win, Nikola Jokić, Gary Harris, Paul Millsap, or Michael Porter Jr. has to step up!

For Utah to win, it’s on Mike Conley, Jordan Clarkson, Joe Ingles, or Rudy Gobert to step up.

Jamal Murray had an incredible and dominating performance, scoring 50 points in the Denver win! I was really proud watching him give an emotional speech about Breonna Taylor and George Floyd after the game,” Johnson tweeted.

The winner of tonight’s game will advance to the semifinals and will face the Los Angeles Clippers.
