The Lakers will play the Nuggets in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals after bouncing back from a Game 3 loss with a 6 point win on Thursday to take a 3-1 series lead. Denver's played really well in the bubble and even better in the playoffs. Murray and Jokic have been great but I think this is where their ride ends. LeBron and Davis are just too much for the Nuggets to handle. I don't expect a blowout as Denver's shooting should keep them in the game but I don't think the Nuggets are getting enough point this time around. L.A. will want to close this series out and not give Miami a chance to get the rest advantage if they were to advance on Sunday. Let's lay the points with the Lakers.
