One would be advised to not bet on that. The person goes to prove himself to be a gamer, wouldn't ya say?

Still, Game 5 was a stunner for Lakers Nation, who watched their protagonists go down by 30 spots at the crack. After the blowout loss, James said that he is preparing to be without Anthony Davis and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in Game 6, but that if either or both play, it would be a bonus.

Entering Tuesday, James had never lost back-to-back competitions during the first round of the playoffs. That stripe is now over, and he will now look to avoid losing three straight tournaments as the Lakers look to stave off elimination in Thursday's Game 6.

Should we be all that surprised that Los Angeles is trailing? After all, the Suns were the higher seed and played some of the best ball in the entire NBA over the final two months of the season. The Lakers were without both James and Davis for long stretchings because of hurts, and even though they developed chemistry last season when they earned a championship, there were role players including Rajon Rondo and Danny Green who toy major roles for the Lakers in terms of being cement chaps who could step up when the posts were highest.

James was the only Lakers starter who orchestrated in doubled representations in Game 5, and Kyle Kuzma( 15 details) and Talen Horton-Tucker( 11 phases) were the only other actors to reach double people in tops. The non-competitive nature of the game was what was most striking, with Phoenix outscoring Los Angeles 32 -1 0 in the second quarter.

"We merely represented our style. We continued the pace starting, sharing the ball."

James has carried bad crews through minutes like this before and while constructing it to the NBA Finals( he did it in Cleveland not all that long ago ), and he is the last person on earth who is going to go down meekly. But there are 10 musicians on special courts at any appropriate moment in any applied activity, and if the 5 the Suns have on the court are playing as well as they did Tuesday, there is not a whole lot James can do.

Will We Get a Repeat of the Game 5 Thriller?

Well, you can only ask for so much in this life, and that ballgame Tuesday night was extraordinary for so many reasons , not the least of which was the compounded 45 moments in overtime. Somebody please send a tape of that overtime to the survivor of the Hawks-Knicks series, ok?

Lillard set an NBA playoff record with 12 3-pointers in amassing his 55 details, and he included 10 abets and six rebounds for good measure. Wes Mathews cannot defend him , not have had an opportunity to the dearly departed Green who is now plying his trade in Philadelphia.

But Lillard cannot go for 55 every night, and the trick for the Nuggets will be keeping the other starters in check after all of them reached double digits in valuing to be provided by Robert Covington's 19.

Nikola Jokic had 38 parts and finished one facilitate balk of a triple-double after being severely limited in his hand abilities earlier in the streak by Terry Stotts' coaching intrigue. Jokic is clearly the key to this game going Denver's course, and even though Michael Porter Jr. valued 28 in Game 5, Denver may need even more from him given the lack of Jamal Murray.

Portland simply has more offensive and defensive weapons, and the Blazer have the dwelling courtroom and will have their largest gang of the season. But let's not forget that this no-quit Pieces team came back from a duo of 3-1 deficiencies last-place season, something no NBA team had ever done before.

So What Is the Best Wagering Strategy?

These tournaments tend to be called tight, so expect a gait that is slowed by referee whistles and penalty free throw. Those types of competitions tend to go over, and even though the Lakers-Suns number is 20 1/2 parts less than that of the Denver-Portland over/ under, it would seem that both of those totals should be overshadowed because termination plays typically bear little similarity to games when one crew goes ahead 3-2.

So a duo of overs working in partnership with both' pups and the points does not seem like the worst four-way parlay in the history of parlays. Desperate crews often overperform, extremely when one off them has LeBron James and the other has the shoo-in MVP in Jokic. And if that works, the bonus for everyone is a pair of Game 7s. Nobody detests those.
