Nikola Jokic praised his teammate in the Denver Nuggets Jamal Murray for his performance in Game 6 win over the Los Angeles Clippers (98-111).

Murray was forced to exit the game in the third quarter due to an injury, but he returned and made the difference for Denver on both ends in the second half.

“He’s a dog who is never gonna quit … there’s no end for him, the sky is the limit,” Jokic told Malika Andrews of ESPN after the game.

Jokic (34 points, 14 rebounds, seven assists) and Murray (21 points, five boards, five assists) combined for 55 points for the winners.

Game 7 is on Tuesday. The winner will go on to face the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals.
