Okay, Thanks for trying.
And welcome into tonight's broadcast.
I am Samuel Reese coming to you live here on SportsCastr.
On the Thursday night, I bring to Game four of the Western Conference finals, the Los Angeles Lakers and the Denver Nuggets from Orlando, Florida in the MBA bubble at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex.
Well, the first three games, the Siri's have not disappointed one bit as we take a look at the MBA playoff bracket or down to the Final Four, the conference finals in progress here in the West, a 21 Siri's lead for the Lakers over the Nuggets and then now East.
It's a 31 series lead for the Heat over the Celtics.
So glad to have you on board, folks.
Uh, as after it was the Los Angeles Lakers who took the first two games.
Many road off the Nuggets.
But if you did, you are silly to do so.
Looking back at the previous two rounds of these playoffs, and the Nuggets once again proved many wrong with a great performance in Game 32 nights ago to cut the Lakers leading this Siris in half, it could easily be the Nuggets leading this Siri's to one right now, as the Lakers did after all, win Game two on a buzzer beater game winner from Anthony Davis.
This is a Siri's folks and the Denver Nuggets are not going away and are not going to make it easy for the Lakers will see how the Lakers respond tonight.
We'll see if the Nuggets keep on being the resilient team they have proved to be throughout these MBA playoffs.
Thank you, Frank, for joining the broadcast were set for tip off from Orlando in Game four of the West finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Denver Nuggets, a 21 Siri's lead for the Lakers.

Across half court, little stutter.
Step in now he'll reset it at the top for Jeremy Grant Grant on the move in a foul against Dwight Howard in the first free throws of the night.
Coming up as Dwight Howard had a great Game one, but it really hasn't played much, Uh, since since then in Games two and three.
Um, and you know Dwight Howard.
He can make an impact when he's on the floor, but he can't get too aggressive because he picks up too many fouls every time he's in there.
It feels like an already picking up one tonight as Grant hits the first free throw.
Second one won't go, it remains three nothing.
Denver The Lakers searching for their first points of the night.
LeBron James will lob it into the hands of Anthony Davis Davis bullying his way inside and puts it in the Lakers on the board.

He had good spurts in Game three, but the rest of the Lakers team, you know, for the most part, didn't get any consistency.
Going on offense as Davis Pinks and the shot and the foul against Millsap.
Although they're going to say it's on the floor, the basket will not count.
He might have been in the shooting motion when that foul occurred, but the referee's are not giving it to him.
The shot clock will reset to 14 after the foul.
Paul Millsap exits for the Nuggets with 9 41 left in the opening quarter of play.

And now here's Anthony Davis.
Davis started by Grant, Nice spin move and the reverse layup Lakers with their first lead of Game four.
Now it's Jamal Murray onto the left hand, the step back shot and you better believe it. It's good.
76 Nuggets back on top Jamal Murray is already starting to feel it.
Here's Caldwell Pope.
You'll get it to Anthony Davis.
Might have got poked in the eye there from Grant, but we play on no foul called Davis with the ball in his hands.
With the shot clock winding down, Anthony Davis, after getting poked in the eye, hits the fade away from the baseline.
Here is Jamal Murray, guarded by Danny Green.

Murray at the top of the key, will be picked up by Caldwell.
Now he gets it to the corner where Harris misses the three.
LeBron James will push it for the Lakers.
James works inside and fouled on the shot.
She sure what? A play by Anthony Davis, by the way, on that step back shot on Grant, where he got poked in the eye, was was playing the point out like this and still made the shot.
You can even make buckets with one high.
LeBron James, in Game three against Denver, had 30 points as both free throws are good.
And for the first time tonight, someone other than Anthony Davis gets on the scoring action for the Lakers.
Murray to the corner.
Harris will take the Open three, and he connects Gary Harris from downtown, and we're tied at 12 apiece.

We've got 6 45 left in the first Denver in possession Jamal Murray, Thio Jeremy Grant back to Jamal Murray Murray guarded by Caldwell Pope.
We'll kick it out, Grant to the corner.
And now Harris back out to Grant Grant off balance shot No good and Dwight Howard there for the rebound ahead.
That goes for James James.
Nearly lost It instead finds Green in the corner who misses the three but Dwight Howard, another offensive rebound and another second chance points.
The lead. Six for the Lakers.
They're coming out with a lot more energy than they did in Game three.
That's safe to say here is granted the corner back up top for Harris over to the right wing. It goes. Step back.
Three from Murray.
Another board and I've had it goes for LeBron James.
James to Caldwell.
Now here is Dwight Howard Howard out to Caldwell Pope, who put up the three no good and a foul called on the floor against Nicole Yokich.
So it remains Laker ball, with the shot clock reset to 14.
LeBron James has obviously been vocal about black lives, matter and social justice issues.
He tweeted out on Briana Taylor.
I've been lost for words today.
I'm devastated, hurt, sad, mad and also on his shoes.
He's is that in Sharpie has put Briana Taylor's name on there in honor of her.
And now Dwight Howard will find LeBron James and a nice spin.
Move the layup good, and I'm an eight point lead for the Lakers.
They're starting to feel it here in the opening quarter of play.
Excuse me, this is Yokich.
Double team comes in a nice feed down low as it was thrown down by Tory Craig.
I must needed basket there for the Denver Nuggets.

Back it goes toe.
LeBron James James, guarded by Craig, gets it to Anthony Davis.
Davis baseline in the corner with Green that was nearly lost but kept alive by Caldwell, Pope and LeBron James rattles home.
The three point shot.
A nine point L. A.
James was seven points, and he makes his first three point attempt of the night.
Now it's Jamal Murray along the baseline.
A nice response by Denver, but the Lakers quickly the other way.
Danny Green pulls up from deep.
That's off the mark, but Davis fouled underneath.
Is he hit the deck? Lakers really getting into a rhythm here in this first quarter, and they are in the bonus, so two shots are coming up here.
For Anthony Davis, it truly is a pivotal Game four one in which the Lakers are looking to take a 31 series lead and the Nuggets are trying to tie up first free throw.
Good Rajon Rondo enters for the first time tonight.
Boy, is he that he's always fun to watch.
I I did like Rondo as a Celtic a lot.
Um, obviously there were some attitude issues, but just purely based off his his play.
I I loved Rondo as a player, and it's weird seeing him as a Laker because, obviously the Celtics fan, I don't like the Lakers at all, but I still respect Rondo's game.
Grant an open corner three, and he knocks it down 25 19.
Thanks for the tip, Norman.
I appreciate that.
Now it's Kyle Kuzma for the Lakers.
Kuzma down low, tough shot in and out, but Dwight Howard puts it in another offensive rebound in another second chance points.
14 points in the paint for L.
Just six for Denver, as we now have a foul called against the Lakers on the floor.
Howard's been dominating the glasses.
Seventh rebound of the night, and there's a reason why he's in the starting lineup instead of JaVale McGee tonight.
And that's a big one.
Yeah, Jamal Murray will back it up off the screen from Yokich, puts on the moves and hits the fade away.
Here is Rajon Rondo Rondo in the corner, guarded by Tory Craig Rondo into the lane.
He passed it to No.
One, although it did deflect off of Jamal.
Murray was trying to come up with the steal, so it stays.
Ball 11 remains on the shot clock.
Pope to inbound into the hands of Rajon Rondo.
Now here's Kyle Kuzma Kuzma, guarded by Craig, shot clock winding down.
He puts it up and no good.
But guess who's there on the follow up again? That would be none other than Dwight Howard, an eight point Laker lead.
Howard has eight points on four of four shooting an eight rebounds, but quickly at the other end, Jamal Murray has a response.
Nice lay up there.
Murray now is 12 points, so lob a pie for Anthony Davis.
But it was Jeremy Grant, who got in the way to reject it.
It states Lakers ball a time out on the floor.
Ah, huge part of this first quarter for the Lakers.
He was in the starting lineup and he has not disappointed for L. A.
I'll be back after the time out.
Final minutes of quarter one next year on SportsCastr.
Welcome back into 51 left in the opening quarter of play, its Game four of the West Finals here on SportsCastr, a 29 23 lead for the Los Angeles Lakers in a pivotal Game four of this best of seven series with a spot in the MBA finals on the line as the winner of the Siri's will be moving on to Yeah, the Finals Upcoming.
Look at the MBA playoffs, scheduled tomorrow.
8 30 Eastern Game five of the Eastern Finals between the Heat and Celtics.
I'll be on the call for that one, and on Saturday at nine.
It's Game five of this series and the West finals between the Lakers and the Nuggets.
That three point shot off the mark from Caldwell Pope, and now it's Michael Porter Jr.
Who's out there for the first time tonight.
Cross court to Jeremy Grant Grant, guarded by Caruso, gets, um, separation and hits the fade away.
Jeremy Grant Letting welcoming Alex Caruso into this game and not the kind ist of ways here is Kyle Kuzma.
Excuse me. I can't talk.
He gets it out to Caruso.
Caruso Baseline out to Rondo Rondo, the three good Rajon Rondo from downtown with No rather that was Caldwell.
Pope. My apologies.
Caldwell Pope from downtown as he hits the wide open uncontested three with the shot clock winding down.
Here is Monte Morris.
Now it's Mason Plumlee, Lakers by seven.
Handoff to Jamal Murray Murray.
No look Pass and Plumlee underneath with the easy two points as he throws it down.
Great great play by Jamal Murray.
Here is Rondo for the Lakers.
Now it's Kuzma deep to got it.
Both teams exchanging baskets back to a seven point Laker lead here on SportsCastr late stages of quarter one.
Now it's Jamal Murray finds Plumlee in the lane.
They'll kick it to the corner.
The three No, and there is K C.
P. With the rebound continuous.
Now it's Alex Caruso.
Caruso, guarded by Grant, will differ out to Caldwell Pope again.
A minute remains in quarter one.
Now it's Anthony Davis who's having one heck of a first quarter.
But he throws that one away looking for Caruso, but the past nowhere near on target that time around.
So it is Denver ball, then Jamal Murray will bring it up.
Court? Yeah, yeah, Here's Murray spin.
Move off the screen.
How it goes to the Y Open.
You cannot convert from deep.
Here's LeBron James.
Now James plows right into Jeremy Grant, and it is called a blocking foul.
And James comes out of that collision a little bit hobbled as he limps of it, favoring that left thigh of hiss.
Mhm! Looked to me like LeBron James pushed in Grant.
I mean, they would never call an offensive foul on LeBron James, though, so but for any other player that probably would be an offensive foul.
But instead he heads to the line.
The first free throw is good Lakers in the bonus late stages of quarter one.
Yeah, second free throw rolls out, and now, with an eight point Laker lead It's Jeremy Grant with the corner three.
Rondo collided with the ref and the ref goes tumbling into the advertising board.
You took a hard fall.
There is a foul on the play, and it's going against LeBron James.
Yeah, Rana was just trying to save it, and the referee got in the way.
Fortunately, though, the referee appears to be all right, so it stays.
Nuggets fall 10 on the shot clock Jamal Murray resets for the Nuggets, guarded by Caruso Murray with a double team emerging.
And it's stolen away by Rondo, who gives it up to James and a ferocious slam dunk to make it a double figure lead for the Lakers, 37 27.
The shot clock is off and the Nuggets will have a chance here with Plumlee go into the cup and a foul against Anthony Davis.
Yeah, nice steal by Rondo on that last Nuggets possession.
The double team too much to handle for Jamal Murray on the unselfish play at the end by Rondo to give it up to James.
You've got the easy two points on the dunk first.
Free throw is good from Plumlee.
Nuggets are in the bonus.
And that's why Mason Plumlee is at the line, 4.
6 seconds left in the quarter, and Alex Caruso Now he won't be coming out.
But Kyle Kuzma? Well, there's a little confusion on the court as to what exactly the substitution is.
Well, I can tell you for certain that Jamal Murray is coming off for the last few seconds of this quarter.
Plumlee misses the second free throw, but we've got a lane violation.
Rondo is a little bit too eager.
He stepped into the paint before the free throw was released, and so Plumlee gets another try at the second free throw attempts.
You missed that one to an offensive rebound.
Monte Morris puts it back up and puts it in with 2.
4 seconds left in the quarter.
This will be inbounded to Kyle Kuzma, the half court effort high off the backboard, and that takes us to the end of the first quarter.
Well, at least the Denver Nuggets ended on a good note.
Monte Morris, with the offensive rebound off the missed free throw from Plumley.
It's a seven point lake early.
The offensive on full display 37 30 after 12 minutes of play, the second quarter next in Game four of the Western Conference final. Stay tuned.
I'll be back second quarter on the way.
After a quick break, you're watching the MBA playoffs live Your on SportsCastr.
Welcome back in everybody we're set for quarter to from the Orlando bubble in Game four, the Western Conference finals, a 21 Siri's lead for the Lakers, the Nuggets looking to even it up and carry their momentum from the Game three win into Game four tonight.
But it's the Lakers with a seven point lead at the half on a beautiful night in Orlando, Florida at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex.
The host of the entirety of these MBA playoffs amid the coronavirus pandemic.
And what the job the MBA is done and resuming the season successfully and putting together a safe environment for the players and a chance for all these 22 teams that were originally invited to the bubble to compete for an MBA.
Fun to compete for an MBA trophy as that is thrown out of bounds by Alex Caruso.
It's turned over Denver ball second quarter just underway from Orlando.
Seven point lead for the Lakers.
Here's Jamal Murray for Denver.
Double team comes and now out to Plumlee Plumbing to the corner.
Porter Jr misses the three James with the rebound for the Lakers, LeBron James will back it up to the top of the key.

A little bit rusty.
Both teams from deep in the shooting game thus far here in quarter to and now, putting on the moves and accelerating to the rim was Monte Morris off the glass and in, and he's trying to get the Denver Nuggets woken up here and give them some life.
Lakers by seven Jeans gets to Koosman now.
Caruso wide open corner three and is a swish back to a 10 point lead.
Two minutes in the quarter to Palm, we will hand it off to Jamal Murray.
Now it goes back to Mason Plumlee, guarded by JaVale McGee.

Kyle Kuzma with the steal.
Now it's James backing in tow.
Tory Craig James spin move kicks out to Kuzma and Cozma's three no good and a foul on the floor against the Denver Nuggets.
So it stays in the possession of the Lakers Here, yes, shatters to so Caruso will inbounds right in front of the Denver bench.
Cross court to Markieff, Morris Morrison.
There for the first time tonight, James gets it downloaded. Morris.
He'll get it to the corner with Koosman now the open three for Caruso this time.
No good and an offensive Val on the battle for the rebound that goes against Markieff.
Morris, who was asking how the foul was against him.
Let's see the replay here.
Oh, yeah, he was pulling on Plumlee there.
No doubt about it.
Good call by the official.
You'll get stripped by Caruso and the Lakers have numbers going forward and a smart foul committed there by Monte Morris.
908 left in the opening half.
Jeremy Grant back into the game for Denver.
Alex Caruso will come out for now.
Tory Craig takes a seat for the Nuggets. A swell.
Here's LeBron James.
Nice, fine charisma with sorry Cozma with the easy two points.
I don't know what what's with me combining Kuzma and Caruso tonight.
Besides the fact it's a 44 32 we'd look who's a virtual fan.
That would be none other than Charles Barkley.
He's got a front row seat as a virtual man.
There he is, 901 left in the second quarter.
It's the Lakers by a dozen.
Chuck living the life.
The action continues after the break.
Welcome back in everybody.
The virtual fans in full presence tonight, including Charles Barkley with a front row seat.
He's loving the life, isn't he? Oh, they're going to keep the camera on Barkley while this game goes on.
This is too good.
Anyways, back to the action.
Up to here is Porter Jr.
Who charges inside and puts it in off the glass.
Now here is LeBron James for the Lakers.
5 to go in the second quarter.
The floater put up, but well, short yoga to the steel.
He goes all the way up the floor for Monte Morris.
Morris slows it down now bounce pass for Mason Plumlee Plumlee backing his way into Caruso outside and back in the plum lease.
Quick spin move.
He differs outside the Grant shot clock to five.
Grant kicks it out again.
What the three point make Nicola Yokich from deep.
That makes it a seven point game.
What a big time shot that Waas.
Now it's LeBron James Thio.
Back out to James, that goes Kuzma.
Three point shot. Good.
Kyle Kuzma at last makes a three point shot back to a 10 point Laker lead.
All the while this is going on, with Anthony Davis taking a seat for the moment, but Michael Porter Jr with quite the response he has an open three, and we've got the time out on the floor.
7 27 left in the second quarter of the Denver Nuggets.
Not a team to give up, are they? They trailed by seven but are sticking around here, and they keep making some big shots to keep this Laker lead within striking distance for Denver.
And so we've got a time out on the floor.
The action continues after the quick break.
Don't go anywhere you're watching The West Finals game.
Four year on SportsCastr Welcome back in.
Everybody is seven point Laker lead with 7.
5 minutes remaining in the first half of Game four in the Western Conference finals, It's Lakers ball, Kuzma the Open three.
He connects back to a double digit lead for the Los Angeles Lakers, 50 to 40.
The Lakers have hit 50 points with still seven minutes left in the first half.
They're on a scoring flurry in this game, and now we've got a foul off the ball.
It goes against Markieff Morris, so Denver will put it back in play.
Here is Monte Morris toe Michael Porter Jr back out to Morris.
It goes now off the screen, he'll pull up for the shot.
No good and a foul against Yokich.
It looks like yoke.
It's got pushed by McGee.
But the referees were seeing something else. Apparently.
Let's see the replay.
I mean, maybe a slight push.
Or McGee actually pushed Plumlee. Not Yokich.
God, um, I guess they saw a little push their from from Yokich and it was called.
So it's 6 48 left in the half.
Yokich will take a seat.
Rajon Rondo at point guard for the Lakers, will get it to Caruso on the right wing.
Caruso, the corner whose mother fake and now the drive along the baseline.
And that reflects off of Denver.
It stays Los Angeles basketball with nine on the shot clock.
Davis gets it into Morris.
Now here is Rondo, Rondo the corner, Davis, the spin move and the fadeaway shot.
Anthony Davis just will not slow down back to a dozen lead for the Lakers.
Here's Michael Porter Jr Out.
It goes to Yokich.
Yokich, the three.
He knocks it down.
Oh, my goodness.
Nicola Yokich from deep.
Now here's Markieff Morris Morris out toe.
Davis Davis to Kuzma.
Nice Bob Boone from the Lakers, but they cannot get some points on that possession.
Now it's Michael Porter Porter with a nice move and Lezin with right hand.
Denver within seven.
All of a sudden, Yeah, Rondo! Back to Morris.
Over to the right wing with Caruso Rondo back.
It goes to Alex.
Caruso is picked up by Michael Porter.
Shot clock winding down.
Caruso takes it in the lane.
Another rebound for Porter, but Anthony Davis picks off the past.
A steal for a D.
Now it's Rajon Rondo.
Morris the corner. Three.
No Rondo with a rebound out of all people.
Davis comes down with possession.
Davis out to Morris back.
It goes to Anthony Davis.
Four on the shot clock.
Davis, step back over Plumlee and a foul is called Davis well ahead of the line for three free throws.
Yeah, that's a shot you've gotta let him take if you're Plumlee.
I mean, that's just a bad foul.
That's a bad foul to take if you're Mason Plumlee.
And now that puts the Lakers in the bonus already with still 55 minutes, three seconds remaining in the opening half.
And so the first free throw is good.
Davis sure has gone off here in the first half.
He has 17 points tonight, seven of seven from the field.
Meanwhile, for the Nuggets, eight points on three or four shooting.
The crazy statistic, though, for both Davis and Yokich is they both have zero rebounds.
Uh, the big men on both teams don't have a single rebound, both of them combined.
That's that's unbelievable.
LeBron James reenters for the Lakers.
Caruso and Kuzma take a seat.
Plumlee comes off for the Nuggets.
Not surprising, I'm surprisingly, as he's picked up some fouls.
And so Davis makes all three a Laker 10 point lead with under five to go in the second quarter.
Here is Jamal Murray.
Murray went down, We play on.
Thio Gary Harris Harris to yoga, choked with Caldwell.
Pope guarding him at the left elbow, trying to feed it down low for Millsap.
But it was too predictable.
The Lakers, with a steel and a Hail Mary pass from Rondo, just barely makes its way through the KCP.
And speaking of KCP the corner.
Three. An air ball.
Millsap gave it right back.
Oh, my goodness, What a bad pass.
And now the law from Caldwell Pope.
You'll get all over that one.
It'll be pushed up the floor by the Nuggets, the Euro step and the slam from Jeremy Grant.
That was some ugly basketball right there.
But it all concludes with a Jeremy Grand Slam dunk.
Eight points for Grant, who had a great game.
Another fadeaway shot.
This time he's short and Paul Millsap there for the rebounds.
It's brought up by Jamal Murray.
Murray's past, The Flex, its way over toe Grant Grant from the left wing misses the three point shot, and there we dio Yokich rebound his first of the night.
But it's wasted in the end, and it's another wide open three point miss, this time from Gary Harris.
Meanwhile, in transition, LeBron James with the easy two points, Lakers once again up by double digits, 14 points for James in this game.
Here's Jamal Murray behind the back.
Move off balance kicks it out to Millsap.
Now it's Yokich, top of the key.
How that goes to Millsap again.
He'll fake the shot.
And now take it into the lane.
And we've got a foul on the floor against Anthony Davis.
3 15 left in the first half, third foul on the Lakers this quarter.
So the Nuggets not quite in the bonus here is Yokich with Rondo on.
Or rather, how Howard on him.
Excuse me, Murray over the Grant shot clock winding down.
Grant the deep, too.
He makes it with LeBron James all in his face.
It's no problem for Jeremy Grant.
Eight point game here is Anthony Davis.
Davis lost the handle, but it is off of the Nuggets.
Yeah, Rhonda will put it in play.
It goes to Davis in the corner.
It will put up the three.
It nearly went in, but it falls out on the night where Davis has been hitting just about every shot.
You just had a feeling that one was gonna go in, but it did not.
Millsap hands it off to Murray.
Murray splits the defense and he's fouled on the way to the whole.
Murray just so quick.
And he can go from 100 in a split second 2 36 left in the first half and Danny Green comes into the game for L.
A Harris inbounds to Millsap, Millsap to Murray Murray to the whole Oh, what a lay up.
Are you kidding? May 1 of the most athletic layups I've seen in a long time and maybe ever.
And that Shaw no good from James.
Here come the Nuggets, who are riding some momentum.
Yokich Thio Murray Murray all by himself again.
Missed it, but Jeremy Grant with a putback, count the bucket and the foul.
Alright, let's go back to the layup from Murray all the way in.
He Everyone thought he was going for the slam dunk, but LeBron James puts his right hand in the way.
And in the sports second in mid air, Murray quickly decides I'm going to go underneath them and go with the reverse layup.
Incredible athletic move for the lay up by Jamal Murray.
The Grant Oh Murray was found on the original shot, so the second effort from Grant was after the foul.
So it is two shots here for Murray. My apologies.
Both free throws. Good.
And just like that Denver are within four of the Lakers.
The Nuggets don't go away.
We've learned that throughout these playoffs, here is contagious.
Pope gets into the hands off Anthony Davis, Davis backing into Millsap and the hook shot.
No good rebound controlled by Millsap.
Here is Jamal Murray Murray to Millsap.
He'll fake the three and now out toe Murray again.
Jamal Murray working through traffic spin move.
A tough shot just out, and it is off of Caldwell Pope.
So it stays in the possession of Denver.
Jamal Murray is just taking this game by storm and getting his team back into it.
1 36 left in the second quarter.
It's inbounded to Nicole Yokich Yokich.
Nice move. The floater short.
Danny Green with the rebound green finds Anthony Davis Davis to LeBron James.
Double teamed, you know, back it out along the perimeter shot clock at four.
James needs to make a decision.
He puts up the shot. No good.
Oh, what a dunk by Dwight Howard.
He just put Paul Millsap on a poster and a foul Caldas.
Well, oh, my goodness, Dwight Howard's been ferocious on the offensive, rebounding the Lakers bench.
Absolutely loving it.
In Game three, Dwight Howard just had four points and one rebound.
Tonight, much improved performance.
He has eight points and I'm sorry.
Eight points and 10 rebounds.
Coming up next, The halftime report.
Still a minute left in the second quarter here, but I'll discuss the first half of this game and what I can what you guys can expect and what I for shadow in the second half.

Step back, shot the deep.
Yokich there with the rebound ahead.
It goes for Jamal Murray.
There's just about a half second difference between the shot clock and game clock, and Murray will slow it down for the Nuggets.
They trailed by five 10 seconds to go in the half.
Murray threw it behind yogurt.
You still corrals the ball, and now it takes the no look Pass to the corner.

The halftime report.
Next, don't miss it. I'll be on.
I'll be back on the other side of this break.
It's the Western Conference finals, Lakers by five at the interval.
Welcome into the halftime report here on SportsCastr.
It's been a very entertaining Siris in the Western Conference finals, and Game four tonight has not disappointed either.
How about Dwight Howard in that first half, he got the call to start, and he has been a force when it comes to rebounding.
And 16 55 the score.
It's the Los Angeles Lakers leading the Denver Nuggets at the break.
Thanks everyone for being a part of tonight's broadcast.
Hope you guys are having a wonderful Thursday night.
You're almost through the week, folks.
I've got a half day in school.
So should be a good Friday. All right.
At least I hope we'll let me talk about, though, that Jamal Murray I don't know what it waas Ah, Fake dunk, which turned into an acrobatic reverse lay up.
But that was just an unbelievable athletic play.
I don't even know how it's possible.
All the while he was in mid air.
Of course, back in the Utah Siri's back in the first round, Murray had that spin around.
Move on Gobert and the layup.
This guy's athletic, and he can make quick decisions that end up paying off.
I mean, Jamal Murray is an unbelievable talent.
And he showed that, especially in that second quarter, where he was really a big part of this Denver Nuggets team closing that gap on the Lakers because the Lakers were up by 12 at one point in that first half is we look at stats in the first half of this game, Davis and James combining for 33 points, Yokich and Murray combining for 26 Davis and James, 12 of 21 from the field.
Your kitchen Murray 11 for 15.
The rebounds, 4 to 3 in favor of Davis and James.
The assist, though, in favor of your kitchen.
Murray, 65 How about Dwight Howard as well, 11 points and has double figures in rebounds as well.
Uh, Dwight Howard cannot be overlooked, either.
He's been, Ah, big part of that Lakers first half and yeah, overall in this game, when it comes to the difference between this game in Game three, I felt like the Lakers just came out with a lot more energy in game in Game three.
The whole first half, they really didn't look alive, and they didn't seem to be taking it to the next gear.
But in this game, Davis started out hot.
Dwight Howard gave this team a lot of energy and and really woke them up with with his presence on the boards.
So So the Lakers were ready to go tonight and they got off to a quick lead right away.
They've been leading throughout this first half, but the Nuggets were sticking around, and that's what this Denver team can do to you and eso.
We're gonna have a very competitive second half because Denver they know how important this game is.
As much as they know how good they are coming back from 31 deficits, I'm not sure it would be preferable that they would want to put themselves in that position again.
This Siri's although you.
You couldn't doubt him If that was the case, could you? Let's see if Kenny Smith.
He took off for the board.
It was funny last night when Ernie Johnson beat him.
Uh, the inside the N b A crew truly is the best, aren't they? But yeah, yeah, going back to you know that first half? Um, yeah.
The Lakers just had just had a lot more energy than they didn't gain three overall.
They weren't excellent by any means, but it was second chance points.
They were getting the ball down low.
They weren't taking a lot of bad shots either.
And they had some open threes that they missed.
Um, they also made some as well.
Yeah, they haven't been perfect, but they've got they've got good looks.
Second chance points have been key and on defense.
At times, they made it tough for for the Denver Nuggets.
Thio get to get good shots off, But But But But overall, I thought I thought Denver did a nice job and sticking around keeping the game close.
It should be a thrill of a second half for at least a neutral fan anyway, definitely nerve racking for any Lakers or Nuggets fans, because I definitely believe that Denver is going to make this a second half.
It's only a five point game at the break, and the Nuggets aren't going away.
And we'll see if Anthony Davis can continue to do what he did in that first half, which will be no easy task, but something Anthony Davis is definitely capable of doing, as we've seen in the past with his superstar talent.
But, yeah, Davis will be a crucial part of the second half.
As always, we'll see what type of impact LeBron James will make that will be key for.
The Lakers will see what their bench conduce.
Also, uh, in the Nuggets.
They're just gonna They're just gonna work their tails off like they always do.
They're always the underdog, but they always surprise, don't they? That's the tweet of the night.
This I can't explain it, but it's basically a dog doing some yoga, and, uh, they're saying That's Kenny Smith getting getting ready to run to the board.
It's too good. All right, I'm back.
I'll wrap up the halftime report after this and get you set for the second half, its game for the Western Finals in the MBA playoffs.

And now a drive from Monte Morris missed the layup on the foul against Morris.
And so it's Monte Morris to the line.
Markieff Morris fouled Monte Morris, unrelated, but to Morris is indeed getting involved on that point.
First free throw is good if the second one is converted, that would make it a one point game.
And indeed, that's the case.
It will be brought up by Caruso for the Lakers on 11 to run for the Denver Nuggets in the last 3.
Morris Cross Court Kuzma It was it up to LeBron James.

This is foul count is getting up there.
Michael Malone is gonna keep him in.
If if the Nuggets lose Yokich, that's gonna be a huge blow.

Now it's Anthony Davis.
He finds Alex Caruso.
So the left one with Rajon Rondo.
Now it's back with Davis.
Tough shot, no good, but a late whistle and a foul called and Davis's clutching at that left ankle of his.
This is not a good sign for the Lakers right here.
Yeah, they're going to take a Look, I'm sure to see if this is a flagrant.
Oh, yeah. The ankle turned.
Yes, he's back on his feet.
Davis trying to walk it off.
We'll see if you can continue.
We've got a time out on the play.
6. 44 left in the fourth.
I'm back after this.
Don't go anywhere.
We've got a close one in the fourth quarter.
Welcome back in everybody.
They did indeed.
Call it a common foul against Paul Millsap.
It was just unfortunate landing for Anthony Davis as he turned that ankle.
But it wasn't do toe him landing on Millsap there.
Well, honestly, wasn't much contact for Millsap.
Just unfortunate incident for Davis.
But he does appear to be okay.
It'll take his free throws.
29 points for him.
Can he make it 30 here? Indeed.
That makes it 97 92 5 point lead for the Lakers.
Second free throw, No good.
And Denver grabbed the rebound.
They trailed by 56 40 left in the fourth.
Here comes Jamal Murray.
Oh, it's the foul on the floor.
Murray made the shot, but it's not going to count.
Murray's been special tonight, as he has been throughout these playoffs.
Looks like a shooting foul to me.
But, hey, referees saw it differently.
Spin move from Murray.
Murray makes it with the left hand.
Come on off balance and all.
Nuggets within three.
Here is Anthony Davis.
How that goes to Rajon Rondo.
Run to the lane lobs it up and throwing it down is a d, another beautiful set up by Rajon Rondo on yet another play offices for Rondo as he climbs up the all time list in that category midway through the fourth.
Here is Jamal Murray.
Murray finds Morris fakes the three, and now it takes the floater and knocks it down.
Getting in on the action for Denver here now is LeBron James James with the drive, the foul called on the shot and two free throws upcoming.
Jamal Murray has just been unbelievable in this game, quite frankly, and so the first free throw.
So there's no good Nicole Yokich back into the game.
By the way, Yokich on five fouls keep in mind.
Second free throw good 196 Lakers by four free throws This quarter, Lakers seven of nine.
Nuggets two of two.
Here is Jamal Murray.
Murray loses his balance and a foul called.
It goes against LeBron James, who is outraged by the decision.
So so a foul against the Lakers and Frank Vogel is going to challenge the call.
5 34 left in the fourth.
The Lakers lead at 196 over the Nuggets.
Jamal Murray limping a bit after the play, so they'll take a look.
Unfortunately, guys, that will have to do for my broadcast.
I gotta get to bed.
I have school tomorrow, but I hope you guys enjoyed Enjoy the rest of your night.
Enjoy the rest of this game.
Sorry I couldn't do the entirety of this one.
What a great game it has been.
And what a great finish it will be.
Four point lead for the Lakers about midway through the fourth.
Big challenge here.
We'll see the pays off for Frank Vogel, but that will do for myself.
I'll see you tomorrow night. 8.
30 for heat Celtics.
Make sure you tune in for that one.
