Former NBA player turned pundit Kendrick Perkins said Denver is embarrassing the Lakers in front of us. He believes the Nuggets are seriously outmatched in the Western Conference Finals. Perkins emphasized that they not only show great basketball, but also let the opponent know that they are being followed.
The Formula 1 boss accused the drivers of selfishness.
In terms of team play, Denver really looks head and shoulders above the opponent. In all three games, he often took the initiative and easily tore through the Lakers’ defense, which is considered one of the most reliable in the league.
The efforts of the Lakers’ star basketball players, particularly LeBron James and Anthony Davis, often turned out to be insufficient. In each of these matches, they scored a lot of points, but they did not have a positive impact on the result. In addition, James’ inaccurate three-point shots put the Lakers in an awkward position.

Noted analyst Skip Bayless criticized LeBron for ineffective 3-point shooting. Bayless opined that they were extremely dangerous for the Lakers. The analyst noted that James simply can’t stop throwing them, even though his long range hitting percentage is down to almost 20%. In the series with Denver, the forward made just 3 of 19 attempts.

Of course, LeBron must be given credit for the fact that he continues to please with his performance, despite his age. With 23 points, 12 assists and 7 rebounds in Game 3 against Denver, he ranks fifth in double-doubles in NBA playoff history with 138. All of that fades into the background, though.
For the next game, which will take place at the Crypto.com Arena, the Lakers are super motivated. But it’s unlikely they’ll be able to turn the tide of the series or at least win a reunion. Denver had a great regular season and looks even better in the playoffs. He has much better squad depth and long-range results.
Almost all of Denver’s players are in excellent shape. Although Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray are especially good. First, let’s talk about the Serbian. With 24 points, 8 assists and 6 rebounds in the third game of the series with the Lakers, he repeated the unique record of the legendary Oscar Robertson.
Jokic became the second basketball player in history to score at least 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds and 800 assists in a single season. In the current NBA playoff season, the two-time league MVP is simply unstoppable. He participated in 14 games, averaging 29.9 points, recording 13.2 rebounds and 10.1 assists with an overall percentage of field goals-54.4, three-pointers-47.1.
Murray, for his part, scored 37 points in the third game with Los Angeles, gave 6 assists and also grabbed 7 rebounds. It should be noted that he scored 30 points in the first half of the match. Thus, the point guard for the Nuggets became the third player in the NBA playoffs since 1997 with at least 30 points in the first half of a postseason game.
What Murray started in the opening segment of the game ended with Jokic at the end. This is one of the reasons why the Nuggets are seen as the favorites for the next game. They are able not only to make a great start, but also to squeeze the opponent in the last quarter. X2 is accepted at bookmakers with odds of 2.12.

Denver has been playing well at the end all season. They have enough players who are accurate in shooting. He excels at teamwork. The Lakers are having a worse time in this regard. In the playoffs, some basketball players fail from time to time. Especially brings D’Angelo Russell. Due to unsuccessful performances, a wave of criticism fell on him.
Bayern will not sack Tuchel even if they lose the Bundesliga title.
Everything is based on the fact that the Nuggets will win the next game and send the Lakers home. Perhaps it will go to extra time, but the home fans can hardly count on more. Denver looks stronger. Yes, and his motivation, I think, is no less than that of the Lakers.
