After a historic and record-setting regular season for the Denver Nuggets, it was another early exit in the playoffs for George Karl's team.

The Nuggets set multiple franchise records this season, including 57 victories and 38 home wins. They also didn't have a losing record against any of the Western Conference playoff teams.
