It looked like Jamal Murray and the Nuggets may actually steal a game from the Lakers to tie the series at 1-1.

Anthony Davis had other plans.

With 2.1 seconds left in regulation and his team trailing by one, Davis caught an inbounds pass from Rajon Rondo and drilled the game-winning three-ball to give LA a 105-103 win over Denver.

The win puts the Lakers up 2-0 in the series and in great position to eventually take the series and make the NBA Finals.

The shot put Davis at a game-high 31 points on 11/23 shooting to go with nine boards, two assists and two blocks. The final shot was one of many big plays Davis made down the stretch as he scored LA’s final 10 points.

Rondo, who made the game-winning pass, finished the game with just three points but dished out a game-high tying nine assists.

Murray, who’s been having a magnificent playoff run for the Nuggets, finished with 25 points on 8/19 shooting with four assists.
