LeBron Getting Swept? 🧹

The Nuggets have been so fun to watch, and are just one win away from their first NBA Finals appearance in franchise history. Will Jamal Murray continue to cook, or is LeBron sending it back to Denver for a Game 5? 🏀 (2 min read)


The NBA Finals is almost set, with the Nuggets one win away from making their first title appearance in franchise history, and the Heat absolutely destroying the Celtics. No NBA team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit, and fun fact - two teams have never been swept in the same Conference Finals in NBA history. I’m not saying we’re getting two sweeps or a comeback, but this Western Conference series has been way closer than most 3-0s. In the three games, Denver has won by 6, 5 and 11 points 😏

The Nuggets roster is pretty much perfect. They have an MVP, a should be All-Star, shooters, defense and depth. In a league where conversation is dominated by “super-teams”, Denver is a refreshing taste of how to do it through the draft, player development and smart free agency moves 👏

Murray’s ascension to what we’re seeing in this series is a great story. After missing almost two seasons with a torn ACL, he’s absolutely dominating the Lakers, with a crazy first half of Saturday’s Game 3 🔥

With the Celtics down in their series, Denver has emerged as the clear title favorite at -220. If Miami wins, the Nuggets would get home court advantage in the Finals, but if the Celtics pull off the comeback, they’d actually be the home team vs. Denver because of their regular season record. Safe to say the Nuggets are rooting for the Heat 👀

No nights off at this point of the playoffs, take a look at how tonight’s Game 4 lines are shaping up in Los Angeles 👇

  • Spread: Lakers -3.5

  • Moneyline: Lakers -164, Nuggets +138

  • O/U: 224

Trivia Question: Jamal Murray was the seventh pick of the 2016 NBA draft. Can you name the six players taken before him?

For My Parlay Gurus

It feels wrong to pick against the Nuggets at this point, especially when they are getting points. I assume most people’s logic will be that LeBron isn’t getting swept, but I’m going against that. I’ll take the points to be safe, and also ride that hot hand of Jamal Murray. Take a look 👇

  • Nuggets +3.5 @ Lakers: -108

  • Jamal Murray OVER 26.5 Points: -104
