With two seconds left and the game on the line, Anthony Davis got the inbound pass and made the three at the buzzer that gave to the Los Angeles Lakers the 105-103 win and the 2-0 lead over the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Finals.

Davis with 31 points and nine rebounds stole the game and the spotlight from Nikola Jokic who scored the last 11 points of Denver on the way to a total of 30 points, nine assists, six rebounds, and four assists.

A three and a tip-in by Jokic gave to Denver a one-point lead (101-100), Davis answered, but the Joker gave the lead again to Denver (103-102) with 20 seconds left. Everything was decided in the last play with Denver initially playing great defense and Jamal Murray blocking Danny Green’s shot.

However, Davis and the Lakers had one last chance to win the game and made the most of it.

LeBron James finished the game with 26 points and 11 rebounds, but in the end, Davis made all the big plays for the Lakers.

Murray had 25 points for the Nuggets who came back from a 16-point deficit.
