The Lakers stumbled and let a 68-48 lead begin to slip away with poor shooting efforts in the third and fourth quarters of a 101-99 loss in Denver Monday night. The rise and fall in momentum shifted the advantage fully to Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets after stealing a winnable game for LA. Power forward Anthony Davis scored 32 points in each of the first two games of the series and knocked down 61.9 percent of his shot attempts along the way.

He and LeBron James are capable of carrying the offense for stretches, but more impactful play from D’Angelo Russell, Austin Reaves and Rui Hachimura could help the Lakers fight back in LA.

For the Nuggets, the versatile play of big man Nikola Jokic shined in Games 1 and 2 and opened the series averaging 29.5 points, 16.0 rebounds, 8.5 assists and 2.0 blocks in two games. He has gotten help from guard Jamal Murray and forward Michael Porter Jr., who have combined for 82 points in the series.

The Lakers and Nuggets are set for a 10 p.m. EDT start on TNT. Live streams are available with introductory offers from DirecTV Stream (free trial), SlingTV (free trial) and Max ($9.99+ monthly).
