Unless something miraculous happens, the Minnesota Timberwolves are very close to being eliminated from the playoffs by the Denver Nuggets.
The Nuggets again made it look easy on Friday night, beating the T-Wolves 120-111 and gaining a 3-0 advantage in the opening round of the postseason.
They are now just one win away from making the Western Conference semifinals.

NBA fans online were not that surprised by the Timberwolves’ latest defeat but they were still stunned by the impressive, incredible work of the Nuggets.
“Can’t deny it any longer – Denver Nuggets are the real deal!” one fan said.

There are many people who feel that the Nuggets are not only the real deal, but also more confident and sure of themselves too.
That confidence will surely help them as they move further into the playoffs and the competition gets even tougher.

Some people online again shook their heads at the monster offseason deal that brought Rudy Gobert to the Timberwolves.
They gave up so much and yet they are still likely leaving the playoffs in the first round.
Timberwolves fans are surely disappointed by how this has all turned out.

It seems inevitable that the Nuggets are going to secure a fourth win and take the Timberwolves out.
We don’t know if it’ll be in Game 4 or if Minnesota will put up a challenge.
In this opening round, the Nuggets have shown even the fiercest critics that they have what it takes to make a strong playoff run this year.
The doubters cannot deny that Denver is dominant.NEXT: Video Shows The Unstoppable Nuggets Offense
