This is the first time the Denver Nuggets will play in the Western Conference Finals since 2009.

It's official: the Denver Nuggets will be facing off against the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference Finals. Game 1 against the Lakers takes place this Friday.

This is the first time the Nuggets will play in the conference finals since 2009, and they've never made the NBA Finals.

Last night's win was historic, with Denver becoming the first team in NBA history to come back from a 3-1 series deficit twice in the same postseason.

The Nuggets beat the Clippers 104-89.

The Clippers were heavily favored to win the series, so it's safe to say that folks were in complete shock by the final outcome. Here are a few of our favorite tweets that captured the shock, joy, and excitement of the historic game:
