I have seen some epic game-winning shots but the shot that Anthony Davis took in game two on Sunday night was nothing short of epic. With only seconds left in the game, Anthony Davis hit the game-winning shot to give Los Angeles the win.
With that game-winning shot the Lakers take a 2-0 series lead in the Western Conference final.
Must feel pretty for Davis to be one win away from his very first NBA finals as he never got the chance with New Orleans.
But wait let’s not count out Denver just yet, this is a team who came back from being down 3-1 to both the Clippers and the Utah Jazz.
Do the Lakers have the advantage, and do I think the Lakers will win this series? Yes, but I still believe that Denver will keep it close. I don’t think the Nuggets are going to hand the Lakers the series.
I truly believe that if the Nuggets can win game three then we have a brand new series.
Nikola Jokic who scored 9 straight points the remaining seconds of game 2 before Davis hit the game winner, needs to be more aggressive especially when up against some like Dwight Howard.
Howard has frustrated Jokic in the last two games with his defense, but Nikola has figure out how to counter Howard especially in the paint.
Let’s see who game three favors.
