James and co. one step closer to incredible comeback

The first act of the series between Denver and LA Lakers smiles on the Nuggets. Drawn by a super Jokic (34 points, 21 rebounds, and 14 assists), the Nuggets winning 132-126. Having gone ahead even by 21 points, Denver took big risks. In the last period, the yellowviola came back in a big way, even reaching -3 but, in the convulsive final, Jokic and his teammates managed to hold on and thus take home game 1.

An excellent performance by Davis was not enough for the LA Lakers, who finished with 40 points on the scoreboard. James’ contribution was also excellent: 26 points and 12 rebounds. Tonight scheduled for Game 1 between Boston and Miami, the conference finals in the East.
