Result:
LOSS

The Los Angeles Lakers have made a good run since making several lineup changes over the past few months, but now they're playing for pride and don't want to be swept in the conference final, especially in front of their home fans. The Lakers have come close in all three games but couldn't finish them off, and they're still favored today. The Nuggets have shot nearly 50% from the field in this series, right in line with their season average, but the Lakers at home have only allowed 45.3% shooting on the year. The Lakers had three scorers with 20 or more points in Game 3, including Austin Reaves with 23 points, along with LeBron James and Anthony Davis who had a combined 51 points. Denver is looking at a gentleman's sweep in this series and can clinch it at home on Wednesday. Take the Lakers - Max Play
