The Los Angeles Lakers are on their way to the NBA Finals after beating the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night. The team clinched a 117-107 victory over the Nuggets in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals, thanks in large part to LeBron James. The nuggets started to claw their way back in the third quarter and entered the fourth with only a 87-84 deficit, but the Lakers quickly shut down any hopes Denver had of a rally. It will be their first NBA Finals since 2010.
