The Denver Nuggets' dynamic duo of Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray did likewise but ultimately fell just short.

Anthony Davis was once again the hero for the LA Lakers as he followed up a 37-point performance in Game 1 with 31 tonight, including the buzzer-beater game-winner. NBA Twitter went into a frenzy and rightfully so.
