The Denver Nuggets have officially been eliminated from the NBA playoffs in the second round against the Phoenix Suns. Denver went into the series on a high but a rolling, healthy Suns team was too much for the Nuggets missing key contributors in Jamal Murray, PJ Dozier, and Will Barton for the start.
