Clippers collapse, Nuggets get their due, West Finals preview

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - September 17, 2020 - 1:13:38

Ben Golliver and Michael Pina dig in deep to the Clippers' spectacular demise, assigning blame to Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and Doc Rivers before listing the extenuating circumstances that contributed to their collapse. Then, at the urging of many angry Nuggets fans, Ben and Michael riff on Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray while previewing an unexpected Western Conference finals match-up with the Los Angeles Lakers. Is Jokic vs. LeBron the best showdown of playmakers since Magic vs. Isiah? Is Gary Harris the WCF's X-factor? How will the match-up battles between the stars shake out? The show closes with a look back at Boston's late offensive struggles in Game 1, and Michael pours his heart out describing what it felt like to watch Bam Adebayo block his beloved Jayson Tatum with the game on the line.Please consider donating to the Red Cross for its efforts fighting the Oregon wildfires: https://www.redcross.org/donate/donation.html/
