The Denver Nuggets faced elimination in the bubble once again against the Utah Jazz. After winning a thrilling game 5, the Nuggets got a boost in game 6 with the return of Gary Harris. He gave them the defensive energy they needed to control the game early and often. Jamal Murray was fantastic once again, as was Donovan Mitchell on the Jazz side. They dueled down the stretch as always but the Nuggets got more from their supporting cast, including a quiet twenty two point nine assist effort from Nikola Jokic, and held on to force the all deciding game 7.
