Lakers photos: All the best photos from Monday's win vs. Nuggets

Check out the top photos from last night’s 93-89 victory for the Los Angeles Lakers over the Denver Nuggets.

On Monday night, the Los Angeles Lakers knocked off the Denver Nuggets, 93-89, in a huge victory as the playoffs rapidly approach.

The Lakers were without LeBron James once again last night, who re-aggravated his right ankle injury during Sunday night’s loss to the Toronto Raptors. James had played the previous two games for the Lakers.

But last night, it was Anthony Davis who led the way for the Lakers, scoring 25 points, 7 rebounds, 3 blocks, including a clutch bucket in the final minute and the game-clinching block with under 10 seconds to win the game.

Despite blowing a 14-point fourth quarter lead, the Lakers held on in a much-needed win as they move back into the 5th seed in the Western Conference playoff picture with the Dallas Mavericks only a .5 game back and the Portland Trail Blazers a full game back.
