LeBron James and the Lakers are one step away from elimination in the Western Final after losing 0-3 to some Denver Nuggets who have shown total dominance in all three games.
After the last defeat in Los Angeles (108-119), The King invited his teammates to think about the next game and not think about it so much, because they only need a victory and go game by game to achieve a comeback that will never be have achieved in NBA history.
“You only have to win one, you have to go one by one. We focus on the fourth game and that’s all we can really think about. […]. We have to be ready for Monday. We just have to win one. For us now it’s like having one-match series. And every game counts, obviously, ”he declared at a press conference.

He regretted his third loss!
On the other hand, LeBron James (23 points, 7 rebounds and 12 assists) regretted that despite having opportunities to beat his rival, they did not know how to take advantage of them. And it is that the Lakers managed to go ahead on the scoreboard in the opening quarter but the Nuggets excelled with two consecutive triples to take the victory.
“That forced us to call a timeout and we no longer recovered our rhythm. […]. My attitude is always to be committed as if it were the first game. Once it’s on, it’s kind of hard to turn it off. We all know Jamal Murray is one of the guys in the league who can put up 20 points in a quarter or 30 in a half, which is what he did tonight. He is a great player ”, sentenced The King.
The Lakers will have to win four games in a row to avoid being eliminated, something that has never been done, since no one in the NBA has come back from 3-0 down.
