Anthony Davis’ 3-pointer at the buzzer lifted the Los Angeles Lakers to a 105-103 victory over the Denver Nuggets in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals on Sunday near Orlando.
“Special moment for a special player. Happy to be a part of it,” LeBron James said of Davis’ shot.
Davis, who scored the last 10 Laker points, delivered 22 of his 31 points in the second half for the Lakers, who hold a 2-0 series lead. Davis also finished with nine rebounds.
“Special moment for me, special moment for the team, especially in a situation like that trying to go up 2-0 against a special team, who are great competitors and (fought) for the entire 48 minutes,” Davis said of the Lakers, who played the game in their Kobe Bryant-designed “Black Mamba” jerseys. “So, to do something like in the jerseys we wore tonight makes it even more special.”
James contributed 26 points and 11 rebounds for the Lakers, who blew a 16-point third-quarter lead. Kentavio
