Denver has owned Los Angeles the past year and rightfully are projected to be the heavy favorites to win the series.

How Close Did Taurean Prince Come To Reaching Goal Of Being 40% 3-Point Shooter For Lakers?
Lakers Nation

As such, Prince hoped to knock down at least 40% from deep with the Lakers this season, v ..read more

That was shown on Tuesday in a Play-In Tournament matchup with the New Orleans Pelicans with Vincent providing some scoring punch o ..read more
