Denver Nuggets star Nikola Jokic has taken his game up another level during these playoffs. The two-time MVP is averaging 30.7 points, 12.8 rebounds, and 9.7 assists.

For the Lakers, LeBron James still runs the show, but the key to victory will be Anthony Davis and his defense, who must contain “The Joker” for Los Angeles to advance.
