LeBron James Wears Awesome Outfit Heading For Game 5 vs Nuggets
September 27, 2020
The Los Angeles Lakers will confront Nikola Jokic and the Denver Nuggets in at least one more game. LeBron James and Anthony Davis will enter Game 5 with soreness. LA is a game away from making the NBA Finals, and the three-time champion has picked the right LeBron James outfit. Impressive!
The Lakers have a 3-1 lead over the Denver Nuggets. LA can put an end to the Nuggets’ season with a big win in Saturday’s game. It’s a big night for both teams, and LA has already defeated the Trail Blazers and Rockets 4-1 after losing the series opener.
“Our group’s demeanor in all of these playoff games has been to treat everyone like a must-win,” Lakers coach Frank Vogel said in Friday’s video conference. “I would say that same mindset has applied to the close-out games we had against Houston and Portland, and we know those are always the most difficult wins to get in a series, and we expect this to be no different.”
LeBron James has the winning outfit
The Nuggets have been in the same situation twice and they had great success. Denver was down 3-1 against the Utah Jazz in the first round and to the Los Angeles Clippers in Round 2. Well, yes, Denver is the first team in NBA history to overcome the deficit twice in a postseason.
“People out there probably think this is exactly where we want them. It’s not,” Denver coach Michael Malone said in his video conference. “We would much rather be up 3-1, but it is what it is. We put ourselves in this position. Our team has shown tremendous resiliency and grit in getting out of these before. I have no doubt that tomorrow night we’ll bring that same fight to the game and hopefully we can keep this series alive.”
If LeBron’s team wins, they will make the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010. The Joker and his team are pretty serious about winning this one. They were able to shut down LA in Game 3, and maintained a steady lead throughout the entire game. Hopefully, the Lakers won’t go through the same nightmare again.
Vogel is confident about his players. There’s one major problem though. Davis sustained an ankle injury in the final quarter of Thursday’s game and he feels a bit uncomfortable. This soreness may affect his performance.
