That Game 1 was fascinating. Denver looked like they would run away after a 72-54 first half, but LA actually had a chance to tie in the final minute. That was their only game-tying shot after the opening two minutes of the game, and Denver has to feel like they escaped in that critical Game 1. This series was tough to predict before that game, but it’s even more difficult now. Denver will surely be the favorite in this Game 2, but it’s a game LA needs to win as well.
Schedule and Odds
LAL at DEN (DEN -5.5) O/U: 226.5
Anthony Davis (PF/C – LAL): $11,600 DraftKings, $16,000 FanDuel
Jokic is not known for his defense, and if Game 1 is any indication, Davis should go off in this series. The big man collected 40 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks. Most importantly, he took 23 shots and played 41 minutes. As long as this superstar plays 40-45 minutes and takes 20-25 shots, he will be among the highest-scoring players on every slate.
