Lakers vs. Nuggets Game 5 West finals


The Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets return to Staples Center tonight for Game 5 of their Western Conference finals series.

Denver tied the series at 2-2 with a 120-101 win against the exhausted, dilapidated Lakers on Monday night—and they seem like they’re good enough to beat Kobe and his gang in a seven-game series. They won every physical confrontation in Game 4, and they attacked the Lakers at the rim and on the offensive glass. Expect nothing less than that fierceness in tonight’s game.

Will the Lakers prove to be resilient once again on their home court? Or will the Nuggets make the right moves, close out a game and push the Lakers to the brink?

There’s only one way to find out.
