With a monumental triple-double of LeBron James, Los angeles lakers they defeated this Saturday the Denver Nuggets 117-107 and finalized the tie 4-1, qualifying for their first finals of the NBA from 2010.
The Lakers, who will face the Miami Heat or the Boston Celtics in the final, had to suffer again to defeat the Nuggets of young stars Jamal Murray (19 points) and Nikola Jokic (20), who dreamed of coming back for a third time a 3-1 deficit in these playoffs.
But LeBron James, with 38 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists and an impressive last quarter, finished the job at the first opportunity against some Nuggets who looked exhausted on the Disney World court.
At 35, ‘King’ James will play the tenth final of his career (3 rings) and the first since his arrival at the Lakers in 2018, in which he aspires to offer the championship in memory of the late Kobe Bryant.
After a low-key fourth game on Thursday, Nikola Jokic had an impressive start to the game but quickly saw two personal fouls and had to go to the bench. The other Nuggets figure, Jamal Murray, failed to take the lead in scoring looking visibly drained in this game.
In the final stretch, the gasoline did not reach the Nuggets this time against some Lakers who already touched the final with their fingers and who had LeBron James not to let it escape.
‘King James’ finished off the mission with a dreamy final quarter in which he scored 16 points while stopping Jamal Murray on defense.
The Lakers will play their 32nd final and will have the opportunity to win their 17th ring, which would tie them with the Celtics as the most winning team in history.

Los angeles lakers they managed to prevail last Thursday 24 in the fourth game against Denver Nuggets by a score of 114 to 108. LeBron James He did not offer his best version despite having 26 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists. Instead, Anthony Davis he showed off and was the great star of the game with 34 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists.
AD did not end the last duel well, as he presented a sprained left ankle and his presence for Game 6 was in danger. However, coach Frank Vogel himself indicated in a press conference that the 27-year-old center will be on Saturday. The ‘King’ also had discomfort, but will be ready for the clash with Denver.
With James halfway through his production in these last games, Davis is the basketball player who will have to assume the responsibility of carrying out the result for the Angelenos, since his average in this series is 32.3 points and 6.5 rebounds . For the Lakers, a new victory is enough to qualify for the NBA final.
Jamal Murray was ‘demonized’ the previous duel with 23 points, 3 rebounds and 8 assists, but it was not enough for the Nuggets to take the victory. Nikola Jokić has not been able to regain his best form and has been overshadowed in recent games, the same ones his club has lost.
However, Denver’s were on the same stage with the Clippers and eventually turned the series around 4-3 and advanced in the Playoffs. For that reason, that can be a hinge game in the key and the Lakers cannot be trusted.
