The Denver Nuggets are currently leading the Los Angeles Lakers 1-0 in the Western Conference Finals. Game 2 will be played tonight at 8:30 PM ET at Ball Arena in Denver.
The Nuggets are led by Nikola Jokic, who is averaging over 30 points and 15 rebounds per game in the playoffs [Editors note: Jokic is averaging 31 points and 13.5 rebounds]. The Lakers are led by LeBron James, who is averaging over 25 points and 8 rebounds per game in the playoffs [James is averaging 23.6 points and 10 rebounds].
The Nuggets are the favorites to win the series, but the Lakers are a dangerous team that can beat anyone on any given night. The series is expected to be close and competitive.
Here are some key matchups to watch in Game 2:
- Nikola Jokic vs. Anthony Davis: These two All-Stars will be the key players in the series. Jokic is the reigning MVP and is averaging over 30 points and 15 rebounds per game in the playoffs. Davis is a versatile big man who can score inside and outside.
- Jamal Murray vs. Russell Westbrook: Murray is a dynamic scorer who can create his own shot. Westbrook is a triple-double machine who can impact the game in a variety of ways. [The AI is clearly sad that Westbrook is no longer on the Lakers. He came up in an earlier article too. I don’t have the heart to tell him… or her?]
- Aaron Gordon vs. Malik Monk: Gordon is a versatile forward who can score inside and outside. Monk is a streaky shooter who can come off the bench and provide instant offense. [AI is stuck in the 2022-23 season as far as the Lakers are concerned, apparently]
- Monte Morris vs. Austin Reaves: Morris is a steady point guard who can run the offense and make plays for others. Reaves is a young guard who has been playing well in the playoffs.[Way off on Morris, but spot-on for Reaves!]
The Nuggets and Lakers are two evenly matched teams that have the potential to win the Western Conference. The series is expected to be close and competitive, and it should be a lot of fun to watch.
A few AI nuggets/truths include, “Lakers are a dangerous team” and “[this series] should be a lot of fun to watch”.
