The Minnesota Timberwolves eliminated the defending NBA champions from the postseason by orchestrating an astounding second-half recovery and defeating the Denver Nuggets 98-90.

It was the sixth consecutive season in which the defending champions were eliminated in the second round.

Even in a season where he was named the third Most Valuable Player, Denver star Nikola Jokic stated, “The teams are more hungry, better, and talented than last year.” This pertains to the difficulty of repeating last year’s performance.

Everyone improves.” Undoubtedly, everyone aspires to defeat us.

Following a 45-point victory in Game 6, the Timberwolves staged an epic recovery from a 20-point deficit in the third quarter to secure a 4-3 win in their best-of-seven series and advance to a Western Conference finals matchup against the Dallas Mavericks.

The Timberwolves overcame a halftime deficit of 11 points or more to earn their first victory in a Game 7. Jaden McDaniels added 23 points, Karl-Anthony Towns scored 23 points and collected 12 rebounds, and Anthony Edwards found his form late.

The Nuggets went frigid as Edwards established the Timberwolves’ rhythm and reduced the deficit to one point entering the fourth quarter. Rudy Gobert’s driving layup early in the fourth quarter sealed the Timberwolves’ victory.

“They were scoring,” Jokic remarked in the fourth quarter, where he accumulated 14 of his 34 points. “They accumulated an abundance of offensive rebounds.” We need help

“We exchanged numerous wide-open stares, but such is the nature of the situation. It is possible to make and miss shots; we missed many excellent ones today.

However, that does not solely rest with us. They performed admirably defensively.”

However, Jokic stated that he would not accept that the Nuggets’ inability to win made the loss more painful.

“That is not something I believe in,” the Serb replied. The victorious team is the superior one.

By defeating the Knicks 130-109, the Pacers advance to the Eastern Conference finals.

Tyrese Haliburton contributed 26 points as the Indiana Pacers defeated the New York Knicks 130-109 in Game 7 to advance for the first time in a decade to the Eastern Conference finals. It was one of the most sensational first halves in the annals of the Seventh game.

By shooting 67.1 percent from the field, the Pacers established an NBA playoff record and advanced to face top-seeded Boston in a series that begins on Tuesday. In 2014, Miami eliminated Indiana from the conference finals.

The Pacers accomplished 29 of their 38 first-half attempts for a 76.3 percent shooting percentage. This was the highest percentage in the postseason since 1997 when the NBA began providing detailed play-by-play for all four quarters. At that juncture, they held a 70-55 advantage and withstood each Knicks attempt at a comeback in the second half.

“I just told our team that history is made when they win a Game 7 in Madison Square Garden,” said Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle.
