Jamal Murray shared his thoughts on the Denver Nuggets ahead of the Western Conference Finals clash with the Los Angeles Lakers.
The star of the Nuggets explained how important chemistry has been for Denver’s success in the “bubble”.
“That’s something in this league, I would say. There’s no crowd (in the bubble), so you look at the teams. Who are the best teams? Who plays the best together? Who works its stuff out the most together? Who can hit back the best? Who can hit the first punch? Who can stay together? Who crumbles?
So I think without the crowd, it makes a big difference. It starts to expose, to show you, to show everybody, what teams are about. And (the Clippers) have a lot of talent. But you look at Miami, and Miami is one of the best — if you ask anybody around the league, Miami is one of the best teams.
You see that in the playoffs this year. Boston is one of the best teams. We’re one of the best teams. We go out there, and when we’re rolling, we show it,” Murray said, via Sam Amick of The Athletic.
Murray and the Nuggets defied the odds and will now play in the Conference Finals for the first time since 2009. Game 1 is on Friday.
