Los Angeles Lakers
LEBRON TAKES OVER

After a series in which Lakers forward Anthony Davis has been the highly productive force, LeBron James took matters into his own hands to get his team finally back into the NBA Finals. LeBron would finish with his 27th career postseason triple-double, posting 38 points, 16 rebounds, and 10 assists for the Lakers. 

NUGGETS BATTLE, STRUGGLE IN 4TH

It was a heck of an effort from the Denver Nuggets in this elimination game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Unfortunately for Nuggets fans, they came up short. Denver found themselves trailing by 10 heading into the half, until the Nuggets would climb back into this one, outscoring the Lakers 33-26 in the 3rd quarter alone. That was until the 4th quarter happened, in which the Lakers went on to outscore the Nuggets 30-23, securing the series-clinching win.
