NBA legend Magic Johnson knows pretty much a lot about the game and his latest tweet went viral. The former Lakers president of basketball operations shared his thoughts on the Western Conference playoffs Game 7 between the Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz.
It’s been an entertaining series for both teams. Utah took a 3-1 lead but the Nuggets won the last two games.
Murray and Donovan Mitchel tok part in a back-and-forth battle. According to Johnson, tonight’s game will come down to the supporting casts.
“I’m so excited for Denver vs. Utah Game 7 & to see Jamal Murray vs. Donovan Mitchell!” Johnson tweeted. “For Denver to win, Nikola Jokić, Gary Harris, Paul Millsap, or Michael Porter Jr. has to step up! For Utah to win, it’s on Mike Conley, Jordan Clarkson, Joe Ingles, or Rudy Gobert to step up.”
Magic Johnson to write another viral tweet
Johnson likes to provide his surface-level analysis. He didn’t really say much in his tweet.
The legendary point guard named four Utah players who are the team’s top scorers in the postseason after Mitchel. When it comes to Denver, Jokic and MPJ turned out to be the team’s second-and-fourth leading scorers in the playoffs.
Jerami Grant or Monte Morris may have a big game despite the fact that Johnson didn’t mention their names.
It’s a big game full of excitement for both teams. It’s a big battle and players are getting ready to do the impossible to win the series.
Johnson’s Los Angeles Lakers are getting ready for their second round. They will play OKC or Houston.
Players have taken a different approach this time as they are forced to finish the season in the bubble. Playing inside a bubble is hard and players have to spend a lot of time away from their families.
Staying healthy is important and the NBA has worked on the perfect guideline to protect players. The coronavirus pandemic put the regular season on hold and players had to stay home. Finishing the season in Orlando was the only way to go. There was no other option for the teams.
