Jamal Murray believes the Denver Nuggets can go all the way and win the NBA title, once the season resumes in late July.

Prior to the NBA suspension, the Nuggets had the third best record in the Western Conference (43-22).

“We know we can go win the title. Me and Joker have been in Denver this whole time, working out. Why not? We have proven to be one of the best teams year in and year out since we have been building. We have beaten good teams consistently. We shouldn’t have lost to Portland [last year in the conference semifinals].

That was more on us, our inexperience and they are a good team. But we don’t think that there is a team that can beat us in a seven-game series when we are playing at our best,” Murray said in a Zoom call with Denver reporters, via Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.
