Losing two straight games for the first time in two months, the Los Angeles Lakers fell into a 0-2 hole in the Western Conference Finals as the series shifted to Los Angeles for Games 3-4. LeBron James looked like he was running on smoke in game two on Thursday and seemed to mend his injured foot late in the game. Presumably, he will play on Saturday, but how effective he is could determine the Lakers’ longevity this season.
For the Nuggets, Nikola Joki continues to put up eye-catching set streaks with another triple-double (23 points, 17 rebounds, 12 assists), his fourth straight game with one. Jamaal Murray looked like a bubblegum 2020 version of himself in Game 2, and his finesse is sorely needed for the top seed to advance to the NBA Finals.
