The Nuggets return home as they look to close out their first-round NBA Playoffs series with the Lakers on Monday evening. 

Los Angeles staved off elimination with a 119-108 victory in Game 4 on Saturday night, beginning the arduous climb out of a 3-0 series deficit.

Anthony Davis continued his dominant series with a 25-point, 23-rebound performance, while LeBron James added in 30 points. Austin Reaves (21 points) and D’Angelo Russell (21 points) also provided valuable contributions. 

Nikola Jokic poured in a triple-double for Denver, finishing with 33 points, 14 rebounds and 14 assists. But the Nuggets shot just 9-of-30 from beyond the arc and could not slow down the Lakers, who shot 52 percent from the field. 

Now, the series shifts back to Denver, where the Nuggets have thus far maintained homecourt advantage. For Los Angeles, after at last snapping a devastating losing streak to Denver, this marks once last chance to prolong its season. 

Here is everything that you need to know about Game 5 between the Nuggets and Lakers.
