Lakers vs. Nuggets Game 2: Stream, lineups, injury reports and broadcast info
The Los Angeles Lakers visit the Denver Nuggets in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals on Thursday, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.
After losing Game 1 despite a very nice rally in the fourth quarter, Los Angeles is looking to even this series at one win apiece. Doing so would give it the home-court advantage and the momentum heading home for Game 3, which will take place on Saturday.
In order to win, the Lakers will have to limit Nikola Jokic’s facilitating and Jamal Murray’s scoring. Jokic riddled them with 14 assists on Tuesday, while Murray threw in 12-of-20 shots to score 31 points. They will also need more production from D’Angelo Russell, who mustered just eight points and watched the fourth quarter from the bench.
