The Los Angeles Lakers franchise won an agonizing victory over the Denver Nuggets , by 105-103 , to lead 2-0 in the final series that both cheer for the Western Conference of the NBA.
At the Advenhealth Arena gym in the Orlando Bubble , the Californian team achieved an agonizing victory, just 1 second from the end , with a triple scored by power forward Anthony Davis , scorer of the night with 31 points.
The former New Orleans Pelicans player scored 9-19 in doubles , 2-4 in triples and 7-7 in free practice in the almost 39 minutes he was on the field of the clash played at the Disney Wide World of Sports complex. Thus, Davis rounded off his good work with the capture of 9 rebounds, the delivery of 2 assists and the completion of 2 caps .

In the Nuggets , who came back eight points behind in the last minute and a half ( 92-100 ) and were very close to hitting the blow, Serbian pivot Nikola Jokic stood out , who finished with a mark of 30 points, 9 assists, 6 rebounds and 4 rebounds in 39 minutes.

Anthony Davis had never been in these instances of an NBA postseason and had never had a chance to score a decisive basket. However, the experience was not new for the Lakers .
When Davis' triple entered the rim as the clock expired, drowning the Los Angeles attack, fate sealed the 105-103 in favor of the Lakers to lead the series 2-0 in the Western Conference finals. What is striking is that the coach, Frank Vogel, recalled the scene with a similar feat by another club player. ” Kobe Bryant hit a pitch like that, ” said the coach . “For me, what Anthony Davis did coming off the bench, flying to the end, catching the ball and hitting the basket in the biggest game of our season, and hitting it, it was a Mamba- style pitch .”
The Lakers played in a black mamba outfit. They were designed in conjunction with Bryant , his Perimeter Hall of Fame member who died on January 26 in a helicopter crash.
