The Los Angeles Lakers are finally in the win column against the Denver Nuggets after winning Game 4 119-108.

After three straight second-half collapses, the Lakers managed to hold off a push from Denver to make it a 3-1 series. LeBron James played nearly perfect in the second half, willing his team to the win. James finished with 30 points with 14 of them coming in the fourth quarter. Anthony Davis was also a huge factor with 25 points and 23 rebounds.

The Lakers still have a long way to go to make it to the second round, but fans praised the club for avoiding a sweep and questioned whether they have what it takes to pull off the comeback

The Lakers don’t have history on their side as no team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit, but we’ve seen James make history before.

A major difference in Saturday’s win was the contributions of Los Angeles’ role players. D’Angelo Russell stepped up and had 21 points and Austin Reaves put up 21 as well. It will take performances like that for the Lakers to pull off a miraculous comeback.

Los Angeles knows it can count on James and Davis, but the supporting cast will need to give them some help moving forward.
