The Lakers turned the ball over down five, and then they wasted several seconds waiting to foul. Now they trail by six with 10.9 on the clock. Never say never, but it certainly looks like the Nuggets are about to take a 1-0 lead.
Anthony Davis fouls Nikola Jokic with 26.3 remaining. Jokic sinks both free throws. Lakers call timeout, but it's a five-point game. The Lakers will have to play the free throw game now if they hope to steal the win.
Michael Porter Jr. just tried to jump the passing lane and clinch the win on a steal. Instead he shoulders LeBron James and gives the Lakers two free throws with 1:12 remaining. You can't stop the clock for a desperate opponent. That's an unnecessary risk that really hurt Denver.
LeBron James very nearly cut the lead to two. The ball rimmed out. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope fought for the loose ball. Jamal Murray turned it into an alley-oop for Aaron Gordon.
A 9-0 Laker run has the Denver lead down to 124-121. The adjustment to put Rui Hachimura on Nikola Jokic has flustered the Nuggets, and now Denver is struggling to do much of anything offensively.
We've got another big review. Dennis Schroder gets called for a foul on that Jamal Murray shot, but Darvin Ham thinks that was clean defense. The replay proves him incorrect, however, so Murray gets two free throws.
Anthony Davis has 38 points... and it's going to be forgotten because Nikola Jokic has outplayed him comfortably. That is a scary proposition for the Lakers. Davis is an inconsistent offensive player. If he can't contain Jokic defensively, this series might not go on for much longer.
