Denver Nuggets Vs Los Angeles Lakers Game Day Preview
The Los Angeles Lakers are just a win away from a trip to the NBA Finals after their 114-108 win in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals on Thursday night.
But down 3-1 in their best-of-seven series, the Denver Nuggets might be the most resilient team in modern NBA playoff history. This team will simply not back down when facing elimination. Minus an Anthony Davis buzzer-beater in Game 2 and a few other breaks, it’s not unrealistic to say the Nuggets could be tied in this series or potentially even up 3-1. But even good basketball players and 48 minutes of fairly good play sometimes can’t overcome a team with two top-5 NBA talents. That’s the problem Denver is faced with when they square off with Anthony Davis and King James.
Then again, you don’t survive two previous 3-1 series deficits to a sturdy Utah team and a championship-caliber Clippers team without having some resolve.
Expect Jokic to come out with his best game of the playoffs, and for Murray to make the proper adjustments to clutch up in the fourth if LeBron is on him again.
We do not expect the Denver Nuggets to win the series but for one more game this NUGGET of a carpet ride will continue! Lets Go Game 6!
