TheLos Angeles Lakersfind themselves in a complicated position after suffering their third consecutive loss against the Denver Nuggets.
The Nuggets now hold a 3-0 lead, and the Lakers don t have many chances to make a comeback.
Nobody has ever returned from this deficit in NBA history, but some within the team remain confident.
LeBron James is one of those, as he admits that the only mindset for him is beating the Nuggets.
“Of course, that’s the only mindset for me.”

Of course, this won t be an easy task, but LeBron has been in a similar position.
Back in 2016, he returned from a 3-1 disadvantage against the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.
We must say that LeBron was 31 at the time, and had already won one game that series.
Now, the Lakers have no margin of error and LeBron is well aware of that.
Still, he remains confident, knowing that they must take it one game at a time, and not become desperate.
The Nuggets are playing at an incredible level and it ll be hard for this Lakers team to overcome this situation.
Jamal Murray once again took over in Game 4, taking the Nuggets to a big win that puts them closer to their first-ever NBA Finals appearance.
This team was overlooked all season long and now that they re beating the Lakers, there s no doubt they re the real deal.
Even though Darvin Ham and LeBron remain confident in their team, it s hard to imagine the Lakers turning this series around.
