(KKTV) - For the second straight series, the Nuggets are advancing in the NBA Playoffs after they were down three games to one.

The Nuggets overcame the Clippers Tuesday night with a 104-89 win as they get set to take on the Lakers in the Western Conference Finals Friday night. The Nuggets became the first team in NBA history to come back in a series after being down 3-1 twice in the same season.

The two heroes of the night representing the Mile High City were Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray. The Joker tallied a triple-double with 22 rebounds, 13 assists and 16 points. Murray pitched in 40 points for the commanding victory.

The last time the Nuggets made it to the Western Conference Finals was in 2009, when they fell to Kobe Bryan and the Lakers. The Nuggets have never advanced to the NBA Finals.

This is a developing story and this article will be updated.
