As the Denver Nuggets gear up to face the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday night, they stand on the verge of taking another significant stride toward potential back-to-back championships. With a commanding 3-0 lead in their best-of-seven Western Conference first-round series, the Nuggets showcased their resilience once again in a hard-fought 112-105 victory on Thursday.

Led by the stellar performance of Nikola Jokic, who recorded 24 points, 15 rebounds, and nine assists, the Nuggets displayed their depth with key contributions from Aaron Gordon, Jamal Murray, and Michael Porter Jr. Despite trailing at halftime for the third consecutive game, Denver rallied emphatically, seizing control in the second half to extend their lead and seal the win.


Coach Michael Malone humorously acknowledged the team’s habit of slow starts, emphasizing the importance of settling into the game despite initial deficits. The Nuggets’ dominance over the Lakers is evident, as they secured their 11th consecutive victory against their Western Conference rivals, setting the stage for a potential playoff sweep.

While history favors the Nuggets with no team ever overcoming an 0-3 deficit in NBA playoff history, Lakers stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis remain focused on the present, emphasizing a one-game-at-a-time mentality. Despite a valiant effort from Davis and James in Game 3, the Lakers find themselves facing an uphill battle, with D’Angelo Russell’s struggles adding to their challenges.

As the Nuggets aim to make history, the Lakers are determined to extend the series and keep their championship hopes alive. The stage is set for a thrilling showdown as both teams prepare for a pivotal Game 4.
