The Denver Nuggets have a nice chance to sweep the LA Lakers for the second year in a row. After beating them 112-105 in Game 3 and killing the rival’s morale, the champions are in an excellent position. 

Before Betting on Denver Nuggets vs. LA Lakers Game 4

Denver was confident in Game 3, even when they had a deficit and when Jokic was on the bench. Why? They had three players besides the Joker with 20 or more points, and in such a situation, everything is much easiers. The two guys who took over when needed the most were Aaron Gordon – 29 points and 15 boards, and Michael Porter Jr. – 20 points and 10 rebounds. 

They would play fantastic roles in the moments when the game was on the line, and we are free to say that if it weren’t for them two, the Lakers might have even won. Meanwhile, Murray didn’t have his night even though he scored 22 points and had nine assists, 8-for-21 FG, and Jokic missed a triple-double for one assist – 24 points, 15 boards, and nine dimes. 

The Lakers looked helpless at the finish of Game 3, and it seems that such a scenario became a rule in the series. In each of these three events, as time went by, the Lakers lost the pace and the intensity, particularly Anthony Davis, who started strong in each meeting. AD had 33 points and 15 boards; however, he played 43 minutes, which took a toll on his energy bar. 

LeBron wasn’t there to step up in the vital moments. He was 1-for-6 for three, with nine assists and six boards. Austin Reaves tried to help with 22 points but couldn’t do anything noticeable. D’Angelo Russell didn’t score a single point, missing all of his six three-point attempts. His behavior was interesting, as he boycotted the team’s huddle.
