The Los Angeles lakers nearly rallied to upset the top-seeded Denver Nuggets in the opener of the Western Conference Finals in Denver. That confidence and momentum could carry into Game 2 on Thursday night.
Nuggets star Nikola Jokic made another triple-double on 70% shooting from the field, but slowed in the fourth quarter of Game 1 when the Lakers switched Rui Hachimura to the goaltender. This matchup will be a key one to watch in Game 2.
