Covering the impact of the coronavirus on the world of sport
After claiming a 114-108 victory in Game 4 of their Western Conference Finals series, the Los Angeles Lakers find themselves within a victory of their first place in the NBA Finals since 2010 As he has done throughout the playoffs, LeBron James has taken over for the Lakers on both sides of the pitch and will have to do it again on Saturday night if Los Angeles is to close this series.
With their backs up against the wall, the Denver Nuggets are in a familiar position as they were forced to overcome 3-1 deficits in their first and second round series Could they possibly pull off another comeback, this time against the top-ranked team in the Western Conference? Given the unprecedented returns they have already won, we can’t rule anything out Follow below for live analysis and Game 5 highlights between the Lakers and the Nuggets
Jokic started off strong but went on the bench about halfway through the opening with two fouls But thanks to solid offensive play from Michael Porter Jr and Monte Morris, Denver is left two to Tie or win those minutes could be crucial if the Nuggets are to stay alive
Michael Porter Jr hits the layup tough it’s going to be crucial for the Nuggets as they look to generate offense with Jokic on the bench
two early fouls on Nikola Jokic, the last thing the Nuggets want to see after the last game
Gary Harris pull-up three is HUGE for the Nuggets he didn’t give them a lot of offensive talk
LeBron with the old man bully ball on Jerami Grant Grant is going to need help if LeBron takes that many dribbles while he buries Grant under the basket
And Jokic fouls Howard on a sweep It will be important for the Lakers to keep Dwight out of any trouble
As expected, Jokic comes out aggressive, hitting a contested three on first possession he must force Dwight to keep him there to get him off the rim
– LeBron should come out looking to get into the lane, not wanting to give the Nuggets any hope
– Will Dwight Howard have the same energy he was able to bring to start Game 4?
