Lakers’ Trevor Ariza Posterizes Nuggets’ Jones, But Nuggets Hold On For The Win
The Denver Nuggets, WWE distractions aside, have played very well in the Western Conference Finals, which is now tied 1-1. Despite the tests the Los Angeles Lakers have faced this postseason, none is greater than the one posed by Denver.
The Nuggets let game one at the Staples Center slip away from them, but did not allow the Lakers to capitalize on the momentum they gained from that game. Denver held on for the 106-103 victory that wrested home-court advantage from L.A. The Nuggets now head to the Pepsi Center, where they are undefeated this postseason.
Now for the video…Probably the most memorable moment for the Lakers in game two, Trevor Ariza takes a pass for what looks like a three-point attempt before driving straight to the hoop to leap right over the Lakers’ Dahntay Jones for the monster slam.
