Holy shit what a fourth quarter this was. The Nuggets somehow crawl all the way back and Nikola Jokic goes on a personal 11-0 run to give the Nuggets the lead with 20 seconds left. The man made Anthony Davis look like an absolute child. My eyes couldn't tell what they were watching.
But they left too much time on the clock. 20 seconds is all the Lakers needed and frankly the Nuggets played great defense for all 20 of them. Jamal Murray with a huge block on Danny Green only he couldn't save it from going out of bounds and that gave the Lakers one last chance with 2 seconds left. With that, AD ended the game and gave the Lakers a nice 2-0 series lead. They didn't need a billion FTs to pull this one out because AD put the team on his back and had the two biggest buckets of the game. What a shot, what a game. This is now the second time in the bubble the Lakers have beaten the Nuggets on a last second buzzer beater. You have to think the Nuggets are regretting all those missed FTs in the fourth right about now, that's tough to stomach. When you're going up against LeBron and AD there's a massive difference between 1-1 and 2-0.
Just like we hoped both of these conference finals have been fun as hell to watch. The Nuggets aren't even close to panicking since their series don't start until they fall behind 1-3 anyway. Here's to hoping this one goes the distance as well.
