Michael Malone said Nikola Jokic told the team in the locker room after Game 7 that the loss was his fault and that he could've done more. Jokic missed a few shots short and the first of two late free throws but he finished a sensational first postseason with 29 points and 13 rebounds. Jokic and Gary Harris (15 points) were the two Nuggets who played well offensively in Game 7.

This is where the Nuggets' lack of a closer is hurting them in crunch time of Game 7. Denver has missed several shots short when they desperately need a basket and some of the young Nuggets look a little uncertain and nowhere near as aggressive as they were to start this game.

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

Zach Collins' foul trouble may be the story of this fourth quarter. The Blazers need him on the floor every second he can stay there.
