- May 19, 2023 08:43Final: LAL 103-108 DEN
Another close win for the Nuggets. They hold the home court record and move closer to the NBA Finals. Jamal Murray stepped up big time in the final quarter and sealed the win for the home team. 37 points for him. Jokic gets yet another triple double. The duo combine to hand Lakers their first back to back loses this playoffs.
Lakers lacked the panache from the shooting we’ve seen so far. LeBron and Reaves scored 22 each but it was the three point shooting which actually hurt the team. 26.7% from downtown. Davis too falling off a cliff in terms of offensive contributions. Scored 18 points tonight. A task up at hands for Darvin Ham as the series moves to Los Angeles.
That’s it from this one! We’ll be back for Game 3 from Los Angeles on Saturday.
