Michael Malone shared his thoughts on the Denver Nuggets forcing a Game 7 against the Los Angeles Clippers.

The head coach of Denver said his team has had its sights set on the NBA championship since the start of the season.

“It’s an inner-belief, an inner-confidence. We’ve never lost sight of that. My favorite part about Nikola Jokic — he doesn’t get really excited too often.

When I see Nikola emotional and yelling and screaming and pounding his chest, I know we’re in a good place,” Malone told reporters, via Mike Singer of the Denver Post.

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