Plumlee and Grant both found themselves on top of James, giving Davis space to receive and shoot the ball.
“Either it’s gonna be him or LeBron [James to take the last shot], so we kind of knew that. Just arrived, a bit of miscommunication. I think I had a really good competition, to be honest. I think I was right there. As soon as he shot the ball, he shot it really well. Like, I felt him come in, ”Jokic said of Davis’ shot.
The Nuggets have now lost 2-0 in the series.
Jokic and Michael Malone have said the Nuggets need to keep fighting in the series, although Malone found a silver lining in that the Lakers need a last second to win the game.
“The only thing you can talk about tonight is that we were in the game. They had to rely on a great shot from a great player to beat us to the buzzer. But as long as we put ourselves in a position to win games, that’s all you can ask for. One thing I know about our squad, even though we are disappointed, frustrated, angry, we will use that motivation to come out and try to win Game 3. ”
