Nuggets Analysis: Coming off a close 2-point win

During the Play-In Tournament, there was conjecture that the Lakers ought to have dropped their opening game to avoid seeing the Nuggets in the first round. In retrospect, Los Angeles ought to have thought about using this tactic, as Denver proved to be too strong for them during the series. Both of the games were close, and Jamal Murray’s clutch plays in the last seconds allowed the winning teams to pull away. Murray scored 32 points in the fifth game, and Nikola Jokic contributed 25 points, 20 rebounds, and nine assists to the victory. Jokic’s First Round stat line of 28.2 PPG, 16.2 RPG, and 9.8 APG led Denver in points, rebounds, and assists.
