(AP) -- Preview capsule for the Los Angeles Lakers-Denver Western Conference finals that start tomorrow:

No. 1 LOS ANGELES LAKERS (52-19, 8-2) vs. No. 3 DENVER NUGGETS (46-27, 8-6)

Season series: Lakers, 3-1. The Lakers finished on an 8-0 run to win 105-96 on Dec. 3; Denver won 128-104 on Dec. 22 in a game where LeBron James didn't play; the Lakers won 120-116 in an overtime road game on Feb. 12; and the Lakers won 124-121 on Aug. 10, on a Kyle Kuzma buzzer-beater in the bubble, in a game where the Nuggets used 10 players and basically used everybody for exactly two quarters with some unusual lineups.

Story line: Lakers forward LeBron James is on the brink of his 10th NBA Finals trip, the Lakers are four wins away from getting there for the first time in a decade, and the never-say-die Nuggets are four wins from getting there for the first time. They are the first team in NBA history to rally from 3-1 series deficits twice in the same season - and the same decade, for that matter.

Key matchup: Denver's Nikola Jokic vs. the Lakers' Anthony Davis. They are prototypes of the new era of NBA big man, able to guard multiple positions and score from anywhere they want. Their numbers in the playoffs so far are virtually identical; Davis is averaging 27.6 points, 10.9 rebounds and 4.1 assists while Jokic has averaged 25.4 points, 10.8 rebounds and 6.0 assists.

Injury watch: Denver's Will Barton (knee) remains out. The Lakers' Dion Waiters (left groin) missed the end of the second-round series against Houston.

Numbers of note: The Nuggets have gone to Game 7 in each of their last four playoff series. ... Murray averaged a team-best 18.5 points in four games against the Lakers but shot only 16% from 3-point range in those contests. ... Davis averaged 29.3 points and James averaged 28.7 against Denver this season. ... The Lakers have beaten the Nuggets in all six postseason series between the clubs.

Prediction: Lakers in 7.

====

Another injury update: Rondo is questionable tomorrow with back spasms. Hope he can play.
Rest at the end. Not in the middle.

Boston's defensive and offensive adjustments against the Heat seems to be working.  Great read and reaction from the coaching staff of Brad Stevens.

Miami and Boston are evenly matched.  Both brimming with talented players and both defense oriented.  Both well coached.

Like I said, Boston will let you back in the game with Brad Stevens calling a time out late when momentum has changed.

See.  17 point lead and Brad Stevens calls a timeout only up 4 points.  Then Boston built a quick 5 point lead to lose it as quickly then having a hard time overcoming it.

Ang daming ball deflection ng Heat eh. Tapik-tapik! Bumawi si Jimmy Buckets sa depensa.

I just noticed in the Heats Celtics game that almost all players are wearing low-cut shoes nowadays ... si Tatum lang naka high-cut doon sa final 10

the East series is a nice series, although it's 2-0, I think that it is still too close to call

Ganda.  Galing ng Miami rin talaga.  Their in game adjustments, their defense.  Kakabilib.  Pwede na mag champ sa East.  Pro dun lang ha. :D

This 0-2 series deficit is not insurmountable, but the Celtics have to quickly figure out that Miami defense which forced some crucial Boston TOs in the endgame.

Teams to fall down 0-2 had just a 6-51 all-time record in the Conference Finals. The Raptors were the last team to recover from that deficit in last year's ECF.

Heat’s confidence now is through the roof. In their mind a 17 point lead by Celtics is nothing. It must be though at Celtics’ dugout after this loss. Sana ganito din kaganda laban as west.

my naisip ng paraan si Malone.

prior start ng game i mindset na daw nya mga players nya na 3-1 na sila.

Winning 4 games out of 5 against a Spoelstra coached team is a huge ask even for Boston.  4 out of 5 games yan. Thats the challenge.

While the task might be difficult, it's not insurmountable.  Boston could have been up 2-0 if they were able to preserve their lead.  It's not as if Boston was blown out in both losses.
