Michael Malone called the Los Angeles Clippers ‘the greatest test’ the Denver Nuggets have faced so far.

The head coach of the Nuggets and his players are trying to turn things around in the series, as they are down 3-2.

“The Clippers are a different animal in terms of they’re the championship favorites, they have veterans, they’re big, they’re physical, so this is really the greatest test that we have faced so far,” Malone said, via Andrew Grief of the Los Angeles Times.

Denver remained alive in the series and forced a Game 6, which will take place on Sunday.
