The Denver Nuggets have a chance to move closer to that elusive milestone in Game 3 of the Western Conference playoffs against the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday night…

Denver Nuggets vs. Los Angeles Lakers: Latest Injury Report

The Nuggets are frustrated that national attention has been focused on the struggles of the seventh-seeded Lakers rather than the top-seeded club that has already defeated them twice.

Jamal Murray is the primary reason the Denver Nuggets are two wins away from the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history, despite the fact that Nikola Jokic has been enjoying a spectacular playoffs.

Denver won 108-103 on Thursday, riding an electrifying fourth quarter from Murray to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

He shot 6-for-7 from the field and made four of Denver’s six 3-pointers in the decisive period as the Nuggets beat the Lakers. Murray had the most points in the game with 37.

In the first three quarters, Murray only made five of seventeen shots, and Denver was already behind by three points.

The average number of points scored by Murray in this series is 34. In Denver’s opening game win, he scored 31 points.

Nikola Jokic, meanwhile, recorded his eighth playoff triple-double and 13th overall with 23 points, 17 rebounds, and 12 assists.

Despite making five turnovers for the second game in a row and shooting poorly by his standards, Jokic notched his fourth consecutive triple-double and eighth of the playoffs.

With no signs of slowing down, the former MVP is averaging 30.4, 13.8 boards, 10.2, assists, and 1.2 steals in 38.4 minutes over 13 postseason games this year.

If Los Angeles hopes to make a deep playoff run, it will need to make significant adjustments.

Moreover, according to LeBron James, the Lakers must come out on top in Game 3.

James claims his ankle injury from the end of Game 2 is minimal and he will play on Saturday.

Because of the pain in his right foot that has bothered him throughout the playoffs, James is still listed as probable. James scored 22 points, dished out 10 assists, grabbed 9 boards, dished out 4 steals, and blocked 2 shots in game 2.

Anthony Davis, who had 40 points in Game 1, scored 18 on just 4-of-15 shooting in Game 2.’s Ryan Ward reports that Davis (foot) will play in Saturday’s Game 3 against the Nuggets.

For the same reason, Davis has been listed as probable throughout the playoffs, so his status for Game 3 is not in doubt.

Austin Reaves (22.5 ppg) and Rui Hachimura (19 ppg) have both been outstanding for Los Angeles this series.

The Lakers are undefeated in their home playoff games, and coach Darvin Ham thinks they can still win the series.
