All is well with the Lakers as they cruised to a 126-114 victory over the Denver Nuggets
Orlando- The Los Angles Lakers dominates and defeats the Denver Nuggets 126-114.
In the first half of the Western Conference Finals, the Los Angeles Lakers and the Denver Nuggets were evenly matched as the game was fairly close. Anthony Davis was very aggressive in the early stages of the game. Davis was taking advantage of the smaller defender that was guarding him and was making his shots over him, getting easy layups, and being active on the boards. The Lakers in the second quarter built a comfortable double digit lead against Denver. Turnovers haunted the Nuggets, as they turned ball over nine times, which led to 12 fastbreak points for the Lakers. Dwight Howard impacted the game immensely as he brought his defense. Howard made it hard for the Nuggets to see any daylight with getting the ball in the paint and had a couple of block shots that started transitional offense for LA. Lakers had a 70-59 lead at the break.
In the second half, the Lakers were hot from the field shooting around 55% and was dialed in on both sides of the ball. Rajon Rondo had a couple of assists that made you in awe of what he did and the Lakers' defense put on a defensive clinic, as the Nuggets struggled to find any type of rhythm. The Lake Show cruised to a 126-114 victory over the Nuggets.
Davis finished the game with 37 points, 4 assists, and 10 rebounds
