After emotional high of Game 2, Lakers now find themselves in a series

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The Denver Nuggets, who are down 2-1 in the Western Conference finals, are a loss away from having the Los Angeles Lakers right where they want them. A resilient team that has made history by overcoming a 3-1 series lead twice in the same postseason cannot be taken lightly.

Some thought the Nuggets would lay down in the aftermath of Anthony Davis’ game-winning triple in Game 2.

But that certainly isn’t the case.

“We feel like we should be up 2-1 right now, to be honest,” said Nuggets guard Jamal Murray after Denver’s 114-106 Game 3 victory Tuesday night.
