Denver Nuggets beat Lakers in game two to make it 2-0 in the NBA Western conference final

The Denver Nuggets beat the Los Angeles Lakers 108-103 in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals.

Jamal Murray led the Nuggets with 37 points 23 of them in the fourth quarter on 11-of-24 shooting, including six three pointers. 

Nikola Jokić put up a 23-point, 17-rebound, 12-assist outing, moving into third all-time in playoff triple-doubles.

LeBron James and Austin Reaves paced the Lakers with 22 points each. Rui Hachimura added 21 off the bench, helping the Lakers to a five-point lead at halftime.

Nicola Jokić played the entire third quarter and played into the fourth quarter for the first time in the series. Denver turns its attention to Saturday’s Game 3, where a win would put them firmly on the driving seat ahead of the game four.

Lakers on the other hand need something to hang on as they host the visitors. Lebron James was not at his best after missing a number of missed shots and a dunk.

 James scored a team high-tying 22 points in Game 2, but missed all six of his 3-point attempts.

James and Davis combined for 40 points on the night, and Los Angeles is now 2-6 this postseason when the superstar duo can’t crack the 40-point plateau.
