LeBron James told his teammates at the end of the fourth quarter that he was marking Jamal Murray. The King knew that Murray has been a real baller in the playoffs, lifting his teams from the jaws of defeats umpteenth times this season. James' eagerness to lock Murray down reflected on his defensive work as he didn't give Nuggets' superstar any space on the perimeter, not allowing other players to create screen. Nuggets' hopes of making a last dash towards the win soon faded as Los Angeles Lakers used possession with authority while blocking a couple of shots and stealing the balls at times. Only positive for the Denver Nuggets ahead of the season-defining game is that the Nikola Jokic and Co were twice in the same position in the playoffs, down at 1-3 against both Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers, and still managed to come out as winners. Lakers know no lead is safe enough against this Nuggets team, but LeBron James hasn't lost a series when he is 3-1 up and we think that record to stretch here and back the Showtime to win this match.
