Nuggets sweep Lakers to advance to NBA Finals for first time in team history

Great end to the game after the Lakers fell apart in the 3rd quarter blowing a 15 point lead. The Nuggets outscored the Lakers by 20 in the 3rd quarter and then prevailed down the stretch of the 4th quarter to pick up a 113-111 win. LeBron James had 30 of his 40 points in the first half and was one assist shy of a triple double. Nikola Jokic on the other hand did pick up a monster 30/14/13 triple double to lead Denver to its first ever Western Conference Championship. The Nuggets will now wait for the winner of the Eastern Conference Finals, where our Celtics have made things very difficult on themselves. No NBA team has ever come back to win a series after losing the first three games. The Lakers kept that streak going with their loss tonight.
