Mason Plumlee started the final possession guarding Davis, with Jerami Grant guarding LeBron James. The problem was that Jokic didn't have the ball in his hands at the end of the game.

Davis finished the game with 31 points, nine rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 39 minutes.

"Just happened, a little bit of miscommunication". I think I was right there.

That's why when the shot went in, when the Lakers bench stormed the floor and mobbed Davis, when it became real that the Nuggets had indeed lost after all, it hit like a first workout at. Like, I kind of felt it going in. I mean, we need to fight.

We've dug up a stat that will make Barkley look even more foolish with his earlier statement.

"But we want to come here and do what we want to do".

The Nuggets trailed 70-54 with 8:12 remaining in the third quarter.

Game three is on Tuesday night. But Jokic finally was able to get loose against the Lakers' defense.

Nikola Jokic was going to win the game for Denver on Sunday. Alex Caruso missed a 3-point shot with 6.9 seconds left but Green got the rebound and took another shot.

Davis responded with a 13-foot floater.

Jokic's basket in the lane put Denver up 103-102 with 20.8 seconds left.

But Davis was full of praise for Denver, who became the first team in National Basketball Association history to come back from consecutive 3-1 series deficits to advance after stunning the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers.

With 2.1 seconds left, Davis found himself wide open from the left wing before launching the game-winner, as if it was perfectly designed for him.

"Losing sucks", Denver head coach Michael Malone said after the loss. -LeBron James told reporters after Game 1.

Wade would know a thing or two about game-winning shots, as he hit more than his share throughout his 16-year National Basketball Association career.

He added: "This is what they brought me here for, make big-time plays". But as long as we're putting ourselves in position to win games, that's all you can ask for.

Denver came roaring back after being down 16 points at one point during the game.
