The Denver Nuggets avoided elimination tonight at the STAPLES Center holding off a furious comeback mounted by the Los Angeles Lakers, 102-99. Two unsuspecting players led the Nuggets to victory tonight, Andre Miller and JaVale McGee. Kobe Bryant had another historic game for the purple and gold finishing with 43 points. In the final possession of the game both Bryant and Ramon Sessions had open three-pointers to tie the game that narrowly missed.
The series will continue Thursday night in Denver with the Lakers leading three games to two.
