The Denver Nuggets looked like they would cause problems to the rampant Lakers, but after they pulled a game back in Game 3, the Lakers asserted their dominance on the series final once again. Just like the Boston Celtics, the Nuggets have to win the next game to force a Game 6.
They’d have to win Game 6 to force Game 7 and then win Game 7 to progress to the playoff finals.
The Nuggets have been a surprise revelation in what has been a dramatic west conference playoff campaign. They have forced Game 7s in each of their series and have shown a knack of winning the last game. However, in the Lakers, they face the deadliest combo in Anthony Davies and LeBron James.
The supporting cast of the Lakers makes them all terrorizing any team they face. The Nuggets know this by now, and so know the task that lies ahead of them.
Game 5 takes place on Sunday, 27th September at 1 am.
