After dropping a career-high 43 points in Game 6, Nikola Jokic did not let up in Game 7, posting a 21-point, 15-rebound, 10-assist triple-double, with zero turnovers, adding his name to some elite company. But a big shot by Jamal Murray made it a four-point game with a attractive floater.
Murray added 23 points for the Nuggets, who captured a Game 7 for the first time since May 3, 1978, when David Thompson had 37 in a win over the Milwaukee Bucks. With 40 seconds on the clock and his team up by two, Murray took a handoff from Jokic which caused Aldridge to switch on to him.

The Nuggets led for the entire game, but San Antonio closed their lead to 2 points with less than a minute left in the game after narrowing what was at one point in the third quarter a 17-point deficit.
