Here are some key things to watch for in Game 3:
- Can the Nuggets continue their strong play? The Nuggets have been playing very well in the playoffs, and they will need to continue their strong play if they want to win the series.
- Can the Lakers get LeBron James going? James has been playing well in the playoffs, but he has not been as dominant as he usually is. The Lakers will need James to be at his best if they want to win the series.
- Can the Nuggets defend the Lakers’ 3-point shooting? The Lakers shot 40.7% from 3-point range in Game 2 [Eek! Lakers shot only 26.7% from deep and missed some big ones in the final quarter], and they will need to continue shooting well from 3-point range if they want to win the series.
The Western Conference Finals is shaping up to be a great series, and Game 3 should be another close one. The Nuggets are the favorites, but the Lakers are a veteran team with a lot of experience. The Lakers will be looking to get their first win of the series in Game 3, and they will be hoping that James can lead them to victory.
