Now. With all eyes on LeBron James, who had a high probability that he might take the last shot or last play of the game, but instead he did not move on his position and instead he became a decoy where two Nuggets player gamble to double team LeBron that leads to Anthony Davis open.

Anthony Davis is surprisingly wide open on the left side of the court and with a great pass by Lakers guard Rajon Rondo to Davis, Davis throws a 3’s just right at the buzzer that lifted the Lakers in 105 – 103 win that push the series 2 – 0 in favor of the LA Lakers.
