JOKIC AND DAVIS GO TOE-TO-TOE
Phenomenal effort from both Nuggets star big man Nikola Jokic and Lakers big man Anthony Davis in this one. It's been as expected between the two stars in this series, as both have served as huge parts of each teams overall success. Denver has continued to need big games from Jokic to have a chance in this series and he was fantastic in this one. The "Joker" would finish with 30 points, 6 rebounds, 9 assists, and 4 steals for the Nuggets.
Anthony Davis continues to play some outstanding basketball as well, finishing Game 2 with 31 points, 9 rebounds, and 2 blocks. Davis and Jokic will continue to be a matchup that needs to be monitored throughout this Western Conference Finals.
It looked as if Denver had a shot to take Game 2 away from the Los Angeles Lakers coming down the wire. Before this possession below, Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic went one-on-one with Anthony Davis, finishing with a beautiful hook over AD to take a one point lead. After the Nuggets failed to secure an offensive rebound, the Lakers had one final shot to take a Game 2 win and Anthony Davis stepped up to the plate...
The Nuggets gave the Lakers a huge punch in this one, but Anthony Davis saves the day and gives the Lakers a 2-0 lead in this one. Can the Nuggets respond in Game 3?
